One of the best things in life is to come home to a delicious dinner.
Well, I guess both are pretty sweet, aren’t they?
And that’s what you can expect if you make these delicious and healthy slow cooker sesame chicken wraps for dinner. There’s hardly any prep time required and all you need to do when you are ready for dinner is rinse off the lettuce leaves, layer on the sesame chicken goodness, and you’re good to go.
Alternatively, if you’d rather make a heavier meal, you could skip the lettuce leaves and serve the sesame chicken over rice. Either way, it is a delicious and healthy meal, especially if you use brown rice.
Here’s to coming home to delicious dinners!
