Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Chicken Wrap

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Chicken Wrap – some of my favorite Mediterranean flavors in a delicious and nutritious wrap.Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Chicken Wrap

Today I decided to recreate one of my all time favorite wraps – Hummus Chicken Wrap, that I usually order at a local cafe. It has been cold around here and I haven’t been out a lot, so I missed getting my wrap this week.

That’s why I decided to make this Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Chicken Wrap at home. Best decision ever!

Of course I added some ingredients like the garlic dill sauteed mushrooms.

I also prepared homemade roasted red pepper hummus, which only takes 10 minutes.

Make sure you check out my Creamy Roasted Garlic Hummus recipe, if you’d like to make hummus yourself. I also used it in party appetizers like this Mediterranean Seven Layer Dip With Hummus.

Making hummus at home is so easy.

I’ve shared a roasted garlic hummus recipe with you before. This time I made roasted red pepper hummus. There are a lot of hummus recipes in the web, but I really stand by this one. I’ve been making it for years. If you have time you can definitely peel the chickpeas.

This will make the hummus extra creamy.

What else you need for this Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Chicken Wrap?

You can add ingredients of your choice, of course. I like to add lettuce, cucumbers, feta, chicken bites (which I cooked on skewers) and garlic dill sauteed mushrooms.

The wrap in my local cafe doesn’t have any mushrooms in it. But I’ve found that this delicious garlic dill sauteed mushrooms add just the right flavor to it. They also make the perfect side dish or can be added to a salad or even pizza. Hope you get to try them!
