Hunk of Meat Monday: Chicken Wraps

My favorite restaurant is Red Robin.  The customer service is fantastic and the food is good too.  They also have a great drink selection including the absolute freckled lemonade. - yum!  A favorite of Michael's is the BBQ chicken wrap, so I wanted to try and re-create it.  Here goes:

Start with a roasted chicken.  You could also use left-over chicken which was my original plan. 

Shred the chicken

Start with a wrap (a tortilla would work too you just have to put less filling in it).  Put some ranch on it.

Then lettuce

Then cheese

Then carrots and crushed up tortilla chips (like Red Robin - for a little crunch)

Then tomatoes and chicken

Then more chicken

And finally top with two strips of bacon.

Fold the end and roll up the sides and you have a chicken wrap. 

I was really impressed!!  So easy to make but good and a complete meal.  Next time we will add less lettuce and other filling and more chicken.  

The real tests for all of our meals is if Michael likes it.  I can tell when he really really like something - he gets out a container and starts making his lunch for the next day with the leftovers (this rarely happens).  If he really likes it then he will tell me he wants to take the leftovers for lunch and I will put them in a container for him.  And if he thinks it is ok then he will decline taking left overs for lunch.  There were not leftovers (since we only made two wraps) but I did ask Michael if he would take a wrap for lunch and he said yes - so this meal was a success!

What about chopping the bacon up? Would that make is easier to eat and pehaps spread out the flavor?
