Buffalo Chicken Swiss Chard Wraps with Spiralized Carrots

I only work with brands that I love myself. These are brands that make my life easier, happier, or healthier. You’ll never see me promoting something I don’t believe in or use regularly.

On Friday, I was going to make a buffalo chicken wrap with spiralized carrots and I couldn’t find any large enough carrots to spiralize. I was bummed, because I was excited for this easy and healthy recipe.

Then I remembered: I had Green Giant Carrot Veggie Spirals in the freezer! Wahoo, the day was saved!

I’m so happy when things like this happen: me using a product organically in my own home and sharing that idea with you! So, here we are: a Buffalo Chicken and Spiralized Carrot Wrap with Swiss Chard, using frozen Carrot Veggie Spirals from Green Giant, because I couldn’t find the proper carrots for spiralizing!

Summer’s coming, and I couldn’t be more excited to picnic with the baby! Pack a lunch or snacks (maybe some rosé for Mommy and Daddy) and hit the local parks! Wraps like these will come in handy – and they can be made for the baby, too (I’d use full fat Greek yogurt for Luca and skip the salt and serve this deconstructed – no chard.)

I use Green Giant’s Carrot Veggie Spirals more regularly, because finding the right sized carrots can be really tough – and when you’re in a pinch, they’re a great option! The noodle is thick and the spirals are consistently shaped. You can cook them three ways (all labeled on the package), and I’ve tried all three ways and I prefer boiling them!

They have other varieties too (Zucchini, Butternut Squash, and Beet) – and no, I’m not “cheating” on my Inspiralizer – sometimes convenience is necessary and welcomed!

You can add other veggies here too – like some spiralized bell peppers or cucumbers for more crunch – or add some avocado for more healthy fats! If you’re vegetarian, use some crumbled baked tofu.

I hope this wrap makes your picnic basket soon!

Nutritional Information & Recipe

Buffalo Chicken and Spiralized Carrot Wraps with Swiss Chard

Yields 4

Save RecipeSave Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 6oz nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 5-6 tablespoons hot sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 packages GreenGiant Carrot Spirals
  • 6 large Swiss chard leaves

Instructions

  1. Place the chicken in a medium pot and cover with water and a pinch of salt. Cover the pot and bring to a boil over high-heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low and let cook for 12-15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink on the inside.
  2. While chicken cooks, cook the GreenGiant Carrot Spirals per your preference (directions are on the packaging via boiling, sauteeing or microwave.) Once done, drain them completely and pat dry and set aside.
  3. While chicken and carrot noodles are cooking, place the Greek yogurt, hot sauce, garlic powder, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper in the bottom of a medium mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Add the shredded chicken, cooked GreenGiant Carrot Spirals, and toss well to combine.
  4. Place ¼ cup of the buffalo chicken salad on half of 1 chard leaf and roll tightly, like a burrito. Repeat with remaining chicken salad and leaves. Cut in half and serve.

What a great idea! I was just about to start cooking some swiss chard like I normally do (chopped up stems and leaves) but I can save lots of time by wrapping up my salmon salad in this for lunch tomorrow. Thanks again for this fab idea!

I have nothing prolific to say today (I’ve just been madly testing recipes for this project I’ll be announcing soon) except that today was the first day in my life that I actually enjoyed sliced tomatoes on a sandwich. 🍅 🍞⁣

I’m not a fan of raw tomatoes, except in something subtle like a pico de gallo or if they’re a tiny part of a meal, like a garnish. but today, I made this chickpea tuna salad melt with tomatoes and spinach and LOVED it. 👍🏼⁣

it got me thinking… I can’t be the only one. do you like raw tomatoes? 🤔

luca made a friend today! 👦🏼 🚴‍♂️⁣

one of the things that has made me sad during COVID has been that Luca hasn't spent much time with other kids his age. this summer, we had a little pod of a few kids, but slowly but surely, as the year went on, kids moved to the suburbs, enrolled in school (we didn't feel comfortable), and then as the temperature dropped, the rest of the kids stopped braving the cold and since we felt uncomfortable with indoor playdates, it was really just our little family hanging out. and Luca wasn't hanging out with anyone his age much. ⁣

I have so many thoughts on this. will this change his personality and social skills forever? will he be socially awkward? will he lose out on so many developmental milestones? will this affect his emotional awareness? the list goes on. I know it's only a year or so, but that's over 1/3 of his entire life!⁣

and now that we're in Florida, we just keep to ourselves at my parents' house and don't see any other kids. it's so nice to be together as a family, and I know so many families can't be together right now, so I'm so grateful for that. the other day, Luca saw a 7-year-old boy on a bike in my parents' neighborhood and he asked us if he could be his friend. I almost broke down in tears.⁣

so by chance, we were out on his bike this afternoon and sure enough, we saw the little boy again, riding his bike, with his mother. in that moment, I knew I had to make a move - so I called out to the mother and asked her, "I know this is going to sound weird, but my son would love to hang out with your son! I'd love to get your number so they can ride bikes together sometime!" I was so nervous, haha! ⁣

and just like that, Luca made a friend! they immediately started riding their bikes together (it was so cute I couldn't handle it!!!) and Roma even came a little bit later and literally slipped her hand into the little boy's hand, it was like she was starving for that connection. it was so adorable, and I'm so happy for Luca to have someone to safely play outside with and so I can shed some of this mama worry.⁣

as for these chocolate donuts, search the blog, they’re an oldie but a goodie! 🍩🍫
