This week Sunday Supper is going Back to School. Since I only have 1 week left until I start back to teaching school this was a very appropriate topic. I wanted to find a recipe that I could make and pack in my lunch during the school year because sandwiches and leftovers get tiring after a while.
I found a section in the cookbook about making wraps. I've always been a huge fan of wraps and think they are a great way to re-purpose leftovers. Last night I made way more chicken then we could ever eat for dinner in order to use the rest in wraps for lunch the next day.
I took Katie Workman's guidelines to heart. Her first instruction is to pick a wrap and I chose a light flatbread wrap. The next instruction is to choose the meat and I of course picked the leftover chicken. The third step is to pick a spread. This was a little harder but after looking through the refrigerator I went with roasted red pepper hummus. The last instruction is to fill the wrap with other items and spices as needed. I had a hard time with this but finally went with sauteed vegetables seasoned with salt, pepper, and oregano. The resulting wrap was delicious and totally something I would want to take to work with me for lunch.

1 t. salt
1 t. black pepper
1 t. oregano
½ c. lettuce, shredded

1. Heat the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, peppers, onion, and garlic. Saute for 5 minutes or until they are just softened. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and oregano then stir. Remove from heat.
3. Sprinkle the sauteed vegetables on top of the chicken and then top with lettuce.
4. Fold one side of the wrap on top of the filling and then roll until the wrap is complete. Slice in half and enjoy!
