This year, I am going to be trying to come up with healthy lunch ideas. I noticed that although nearly all of our dinners are relatively healthy, lunch is very hard for me. I typically do not menu plan lunch as best as I should, because typically I just grab something on hand or eat leftovers.
Throughout the past year, I have had several close blood sugar calls and found out that I needed more protein during the day not just at dinner time. In saying that, I decided it was time to take control over my lunch time.
This is one of my first lunch post that I’ll be doing; however, these meals can also be a dinner recipe too. I have to admit this was a huge success, likely one of my favorite sandwiches. This is my version of a healthy gyro; although, many may just call it a wrap or flat bread sandwich.
To make the chicken, I put 2 chicken breast seasoned with lemon pepper in the slow cooker on low for 8 hours. Once the chicken breast was full cooked, I shredded it and took it off the bone. This sandwich can be made with any chicken and is good to use with leftover chicken as well.
The bread that I used is Flat Out Fold It’s. I found this bread at my local Walmart and was unable to find it at my regular grocery store.
Let’s get on to this delicious recipe!
- 1 Package Flat Out Fold It Traditional White Bread
- 6 Oz Nonfat Greek Yogurt- Plain
- 1/2 Cup Nonfat Sour Cream
- 1 Tbsp Dill Weed
- 2 Cups Shredded Chicken
- 1 Tomato Chopped
- 1 Red Onion Chopped
- Baby Spinach
- Feta Cheese
- In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, sour cream, and dill weed then set aside.
- Lay out one of the flat out's and then put your chicken, tomato, onion and baby spinach on it.
- Top this with the dip mixture and then sprinkle with a small portion of feta cheese.
- Fold it over and serve.
- This will make at least 6 sandwiches.
This is based on the recipe serving 6 and assuming that you eat 1 serving.
