How to Pack a Chicken Wrap for Lunch
Keeping a wrap fresh until lunchtime is possible when you pack it properly. Check these tips to enjoy epic wraps every time:
Keep wraps fresh
If you’re making wraps ahead using gluten-free tortillas, cover them with a damp paper towel and refrigerate. This will prevent tortillas from drying out.
Use a sturdy container
Pack the wrap in a firm container, so it won’t be flattened in the lunch bag. You can place it in a wrap-size container or one compartment of the lunchbox. You can check the best containers for school lunches in this post.
Keep things separate
When sending lunch sides like veggies and fruits, place them in a compartment separate from the chicken wrap. This way, everything will stay fresh and crunchy until lunchtime.
