This simple and easy lunch or dinner is a great way to help children transition from chicken nuggets into more mature meals and flavors. Even though it’s simple, it is still tasty enough for the adults to enjoy, too.

The chicken nuggets can be easily cooked in a camp oven or fried on a BBQ or in a skillet. For a bit better quality swap up to chicken tenders. Then it is just a matter of adding them to your favorite wrap fillings.

This wrap starts fairly basic with lettuce, tomato, and grated cheese. As your kids become more adventurous, you can add different salads and vegetables to the wraps.
