Tips:

  • Be sure to spray your wraps with nonstick spray to keep them from sticking when frying them.
  • Save yourself time by shredding a rotisserie chicken rather than baking chicken at home.
  • When shredding chicken, it’s best to do it when it’s as hot as you can comfortably handle. It shreds better when warm or hot.
