Leftover Chicken Pesto Wraps Recipe

The best parts of cooking a big meal for your family are the leftovers! Turn a roasted chicken into a delicious Chicken Pesto Wrap lunch; you can even make your own homemade pesto sauce. Adding cheese lends this simple recipe extraordinary flavor. These Chicken Pesto Wraps would also make great after-school snacks!

What you'll need

  • ½ - ¾ cup pesto sauce

Helpful Tip:

Using store-bought pesto is fine for this dish, but if you want the best flavor, make your own! It's easy, fast and fun… and the flavor can't be beat.
