Chicken Hummus Naan Wraps

As a "Type B" foodie, I've spent most of my adult life relying on daily cravings to steer my meal choices. My belly loves this BUT it's bad for saving money and preventing food waste.

To combat this, I've been implementing weekly meal planning into my schedule for the past year or so. It's almost a thoughtless habit at this point (yay) but I realize that my success hinges on building a reserve of quick & easy dinner recipes that I can rotate out to keep things interesting.

Honestly, my two biggest issues with eating home cooked real food on a regular basis are boredom (not enough variety) and little desire to prep & cook a new meal every single night.

Can you relate?

Quick Prep Dinner Recipes
Chicken Hummus Naan Wraps

I love cooking and find it relaxing; however, just like everyone else, I get burnt out. Combine that with my hatred for washing dishes (pro tip: listening to podcasts like All Killa No Filla or Serial makes it a million times more enjoyable) and that's a recipe for takeout!

My solution to this has been to come up with quick prep dinner recipes that use simple ingredients so there's less time standing over the stove and fewer dishes to wash. Meals like parmesan crusted chicken, pan-seared salmon with chimichurri sauce, creamy tomato basil soup with cheesy toast, tuna patties with a leafy salad, and pan-seared mahi-mahi with pineapple salsa.

Easy Chicken Wraps (Fast Prep & Simple to Make Ahead)

Today's recipe for chicken hummus naan wraps is one of my latest go-to quick dinner recipes. I came up with it last May (I shared it first on Instagram) and have been fixing it once or twice a month ever since.

It's fast to fix and has a good mix of healthy ingredients like fresh veggies, tangy vinaigrette & cooked chicken + a comforting element in the form of pillowy soft naan bread. If you have any leftovers they transform into an easy leafy salad. And it's a perfect meal to add to your meal plan if you're using shredded cooked chicken for other meals and want plenty of variety.

What Is Naan Bread & Why You Should Try it ASAP

I've eaten my share of sandwiches or pita bread slathered in hummus & stuffed with layers of cucumber, tomatoes, sprouts, and onions, but this was my first time trying naan bread (a leavened Indian flatbread).

Ummm....guys, if you haven't tried naan bread, you need it in your life right meow. The texture is ahhhhh-mazing. It makes pita bread look like a dry, crumbly, sad pocket in comparison. This is because most naan bread contains yogurt & butter which makes it thick, soft & chewy. (You can read more about naan bread here if you're curious.)

Butter is my love language, ya'll.

I also use naan bread for a quick pizza when I need to do a fridge cleanout.

For serious, go buy some naan bread and use it as a vessel for delicious meals like these chicken hummus wraps. You can thank me later.
