Chicken Wrap - week night or make ahead lunch meal in a snap

I love to buy these wraps from the store...but for $3.99 + the cost of a bag of chips, $5+ is just more than I'm willing to spend on a meal that i can make myself for pennies. At first, i was a little hesitant and worried that mine wouldn't taste as good as the ones from the store, but trying it tonight, it WAS, and I'm so excited about it because now i can make them over and over again! At the time of writing this, I'm 7 mos pregnant and I stay exhausted. That being said, my husband works all day, long hours and i feel that he deserves to come home to a decent meal every night. My point is - fast food is the best food..and by fast food i mean this meal. It took maybe 15 minutes to complete, and i made extra for him to take for lunch tomorrow! I also want to point out that considering all the dinners out there, this is a healthier choice, so that just adds to it's greatness.

This made 5 wraps for me, however if you really want to beef them up with chicken it may make about 3.

Chicken breast
Shredded mozzarella
1. Season meat as desired and cut into cubes, chunks, strips, whichever you prefer and cook on George Forman grill. This made the meat moist and amazing!! I use a Cajun seasoning from back home Louisiana (this is my second post in a row saying this).
2. Lay out tortillas, warm if desired in microwave for a few seconds

3. Spread a thin layer of ranch over tortilla with the backside of a spoon
4. Lay a layer of spinach, the ranch will act as a glue to help hold it down
5. Sprinkle on the mozzarella cheese
6. Add chicken

Make sure to refrigerate leftovers, i always make the wraps and store them instead of having ingredients randomly piling in the fridge.
Eat it right out of the fridge!
