So this recipie is so so so good if you like Teriyaki Chicken. I din't have 1/2 the ingredients this recipie called for and it still was amazing and healthy 2.

What I used:

Tyson frozen plain chicken strips
a few thin slices of red pepper
a few thin slices of white onion

I combined 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce, 3 tsp sesame oil and a spray of garlic powder into the sauce. Poured over the chicken, peppers and onions and baked for about 15-20min. Put on tortilla with lettuce, rice, chicken and veggies.

This was the most amazing wrap I have ever had. :)
