Creamy Lentil Wraps with Chicken & Fuji Apple

Hot summer days mean cool summer meals. While this one does involve some cooking, it is served cool or room temperature. 

One very crisp Fuji apple, 1/2 c lentils, and 2 green onions. Prepare the lentils as directed, and meanwhile, peel and chop up the apple and green onions. 

Mix the apple and onions with 2-3 wedges of Laughing Cow Original Light cheese. 

Once the lentils are tender, drain them well, season with a splash of cider vinegar and fresh ground pepper, and add to the apple mix. 

I had intended to make lettuce wraps using these large organic Romaine leaves. The leaves had other plans though and preferred to be served as a salad base. 

While that mix cools to room temperature, pan fry (< 1T olive oil) or grill chicken tenderloins (you know YJDKIY doesn't photograph those! gross!) seasoned with a bit of Worcestershire sauce. When cooked, chop into small pieces and stir into mix. The creamy Swiss, sweet apple, earthy lentils, tangy chicken, and crispy lettuce made for a filling mix of flavor and texture. Survey says: keeper!

Survey says: most pitiful puppy face on the planet!
