Chicken Salad Ranch Roll Ups

I love recipes where I can sneak in healthy stuff that my kids would otherwise never eat. I add kale to a variety of meals such as sandwiches, soups and salads. Since kale is high in vitamins, calcium and iron – it’s the perfect vegetable. You can sauté kale with olive oil and garlic and serve it as a side to any meal. Mix it in with salad greens and you kick up the nutrients content in your salad. Kale has many culinary options.

I make these roll ups all the time for the kids. No one in the house likes mayo including myself so I toss the chicken with a little ranch dressing. Chicken Salad Roll Ups make a quick, healthy meal in no time. I cut them into small pieces so they can eat them easily and it makes them more fun and inviting.

You can change the protein and add tuna fish or use a low-fat mayo based dressing if you don’t like ranch. If your little ones aren’t allergic to nuts you can add nuts for extra protein and a little crunch (We have a nut free house as both little ones are allergic). Hope you enjoy these healthy kale chicken roll ups.

1 cup of diced cooked chicken
1 whole wheat flour tortilla
3 tablespoons of ranch dressing
1/4 cup of chopped kale or baby spinach

1. In a bowl combine chicken, kale and ranch dressing.

Bernice first started Yummy Tummy Cooking when her son was 2 years old. After being a little disappointed and down right scared at times (meat sticks in a jar…need I say more) with the food selection at the supermarket, she started making her children’s meals at home. Most weekends you can find her in the kitchen, supermarket or local farmers markets. Bernice’s philosophy to what she feeds her family is simple – try to buy local and organic. She has a bachelor’s degree in chemistry; if she has to refer to her degree to decipher the ingredients, she doesn’t buy it. If she can’t read it, they don’t eat it….that simple!
