Brian and I decided to stay home for Easter and also decided on a less than traditional lunch and dinner menu. We headed to the market with no real plan (which is completely unlike my list driven self) and decided to the let the ingredients guide us. We picked up shrimp, rotisserie chicken, fresh jalapenos, and lots of cilantro. Due to not having a list, I forgot jam, raspberries and yogurt.
After assessing the ingredients the refrigerator, we decided lunch would include Curried Chicken Wraps stuffed with a bunch of fresh veggies and grapes. For dinner, we whipped up grilled shrimp, cilantro rice and asparagus. Definitely not your traditional Honey Baked Ham and deviled eggs, but delicious in their own right.
With the help of a store bought rotisserie chicken, these Curried Chicken Wraps couldn’t have been easier. I added in celery for crunch, red pepper for color and grapes for sweetness. Rolled up with lettuce, cilantro and Colby-Jack Cheese, we couldn’t have asked for a tastier Easter lunch. Although I did kinda miss the deviled eggs!
