ginger teriyaki stir-fry wraps

My husband was not overly excited about my latest wrap recipe. You see, he is not a fan of edamame. He has, however, given up complaining (for the most part) when I am whipping up something for my blog. He doesn't even complain about eating lukewarm food. He knows I have got to get that perfect shot of my creation before we can actually get down the business of eating it. What a great sport! ;)

I chose to use ground chicken this time but diced chicken breast would be every bit as nice. In fact, this recipe could be mixed and matched many different ways. Beef or pork could could be used instead of chicken. Tofu could replace the meat. You could use different veggies to suit your tastes. If you don't care for teriyaki you could use a different sauce. Have fun with it!

I thought of adding brown rice to this...but didn't. I will next time.

My daughter and I both agreed this was a winner so I decided to go ahead and share it with you.

Fantastic. I am always looking for cool wrap recipes. Hubby doesn't like sandwiches at work cause he says they get all soggy... he is so high maintenance! :P
Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead.

Kim, I could so relate about your hubby. I just give mine the famous look...and he backs down. It's the first time in my life that I put myslef first...hence my culinary journey ;o)
Your wraps look very appetizing especially with one of my favourite sauces.
Have a great weekend.
Flacourful wishes, Claudia

tasteofbeirut said...

It is wonderful to whip up something so healthy and realize it is delicious as well!

Cinnamon-Girl said...

I love everything about this! I would make it as is. I always have edamame hanging around and love teriyaki! Hope you're enjoying summer vacation!

Barbara said...

Edamame is one of my favorites, Kim! Love that you have included it in your wrap.
And I agree, I think I would like diced chicken rather than ground. I have a wrap several times a week for lunch and will definitely add your teriyaki version to my list!

Judy said...

This looks yummy, what a nice lunch.

Sinful Southern Sweets said...

These look wonderful! Love it!

Krista said...

Yummy wrap! I had to laugh, because it's the same at my house. My husband has taken to filling drinks and getting the kiddos situated at the table while I strive for the "perfect" shot.

sweetlife said...
