Our chicken wrap recipe won’t take long to make. You’ll need one can of mandarin oranges, some low-sodium soy sauce, dried-ground ginger, hoisin sauce, shredded but cooked chicken, four whole-wheat tortillas, a grated carrot, zucchini, and four ounces of Cabot Lite75 Sharp Cheddar or Cabot Lite50 Sharp Cheddar. When preparing the sauce, pour two tablespoons of mandarin juice into a bowl. Add the soy sauce, ginger and hoisin sauce. Add chicken and toss until coated evenly. Spoon out your mandarins from the can and place on a paper towel—blot dry. Spread whatever hoisin sauce you have left onto a tortilla. Then serve the coated chicken on it. Add carrot, zucchini, oranges and some cheese.
