Surviving Dinner – Grilled Chicken Salad Wraps

Lots of recipes claim they can be cooked in 20 minutes or less.  Some nights are so busy, even that’s too long.  “Surviving Dinner” is a series that is not about good wifeing, mothering, or cooking.  It’s about surviving.  It’s for those nights when you’re tempted to write “fast food” on the menu, but cooking at home will save you a few dollars, a few hundred calories, and loads of mommy-guilt.  Recipes found here can be cooked quickly and have minimal prep and clean-up.  Some may require a little pre-planning, but many won’t.

This is a hybrid of two previous menus – wraps and salad.  It’s a great way to transform boring leftover salad into a quick, healthy dinner!

Survival Menu:

  • Grilled Chicken Salad Wraps
  • Chips
  • Sliced Fruit


  • Tortillas
  • Leftover Salad
  • Chicken breast (This is also a great way to use up leftover chicken!)
  • Your choice of marinade
  • Dressing (optional)
  • Chips
  • Fruit

Marinate chicken overnight in the fridge.  Grill & slice.  Wrap leftover salad, chicken, and dressing (optional) in a tortilla.  Serve with chips & fruit.
