Wendy's Chicken Wraps-NOT

Ok, so this post will have to be labeled "not so gourmet" or "A monkey could make it", or maybe "is this really cooking?". But come on, we don't always want to we? And sometimes, I want to offer up a normal* dinner, that doesn't require explanation and that the kids just eat. I love recipes that take only a few minutes to prepare and a only a few minutes to clean up - because there is nothing left over. So, a few weeks back, I had a grilled chicken wrap. I was really just wanting something that was under a million calories (good news, it is only 190 calories, 4 weight watcher points). Anyway, it was pretty good, good enough that I have been craving one since. So thus my version.
* yes, my children sometimes complain that I do not cook normal food.

Spicy Chicken Wraps

3 Large chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon each-salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons hot sauce
2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce
8 tortillas
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 Tablespoons honey
2 cups lettuce, shaved
1 cup tomatoes
1 cup cheddar jack cheese,grated

Season the chicken breasts with the salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. Cook in a large skillet with a couple tablespoons olive oil.
Combine the mayo, honey and Dijon and set aside.
Shred the lettuce, chop the tomatoes, and grate the cheese.

Slice chicken and mix in 3 tablespoons Hot sauce. I like to use Franks Red Hot.

For extra zip, I add few teaspoons of my favorite chili garlic sauce.

warm the tortillas. Spread a Tablespoon of the honey mustard on the tortilla and add a few slices of chicken.

Add lettuce, tomato, and cheese
