Every experienced cook has several tricks up his/her sleeve, and one of my shortcuts is to buy a rotisserie chicken (dirt cheap at Costco for a huge bird!), and then use the meat as a base of several dishes. Usually it ends up as a part of a soup or pasta dish, so when I found this wrap recipe in one of my issues of Cooking Light, I was immediately drawn to it. They are amazingly easy to make, and only get better as they chill. I whip these up for lunch regularly. Hard to believe it is a “light” recipe.
