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.)

Buffalo Chicken Swiss Chard Wraps with Spiralized Carrots

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

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 6 oz 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

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
