Sweet Potato and Chicken Wraps – 21 Day Fix Approved

Here’s a delicious and innovative take on a collard green wrap that gives you a complete meal on-the-go. It’s kind of like a chicken salad wrap, but it uses mashed sweet potato as a binder instead of mayo, which takes it to a whole new level of flavor!  (Courtesy of Beachbody)

NOTES:

  • To prepare sweet potatoes, pierce whole sweet potatoes multiple times
    with a fork and bake at 425º F for 40 minutes, or until soft to the center.
  • You can make the wraps more pliable by quickly dipping the collard greens into a pot of hot water and then running the leaves under cold water.
  • Leftover wraps will keep in refrigerator, wrapped in plastic, for up to 5 days.
