Simple but delicious tuna wrap

Whole wheat wrap
Tuna
Lettuce
Hotsauce

(Use hotsauce to replace mayonnaise and add lots of flavor. Yogurt can also be used but I prefer hot sauce.)

HEre are a bunch of easy recipes I got from the healthy living section of cnn.com that I am going to try. Enjoy!


Chicken Cacciatorre
Ingredients

* 2 teaspoons olive oil
* 4 (4-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken- breast halves
* 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
* 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
* 1 small yellow or green bell pepper, cut into thin strips
* 2 cups sliced crimini mushrooms

* 1 1/2 cups tomato-and-basil pasta sauce (such as Classico)
* 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Preparation
1. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add chicken. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper over chicken; cook 4 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate; set aside.
2. Combine bell pepper and mushrooms in skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add wine; cook 2 minutes. Stir in sauce; heat through. Return chicken to skillet; reduce heat and simmer, turning once, 4 minutes or until cooked through. Top with parsley.



Black Bean and Chicken Chilaquiles
Ingredients

* Cooking spray
* 1 cup thinly sliced onion
* 5 garlic cloves, minced
* 2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
* 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
* 1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
* 1 (7 3/4-ounce) can salsa de chile fresco (such as El Pato)
* 15 (6-inch) corn tortillas, cut into 1-inch strips
* 1 cup shredded queso blanco (about 4 ounces)

Preparation
Preheat oven to 450°.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion; sauté 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add chicken; cook 30 seconds. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl; stir in beans. Add broth and salsa to pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
Place half of tortilla strips in bottom of an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Layer half of chicken mixture over tortillas; top with remaining tortillas and chicken mixture. Pour broth mixture evenly over chicken mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes or until tortillas are lightly browned and cheese is melted.


Chicken Wraps

* 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
* 4 teaspoons olive oil

4. Assemble the wraps just before you are ready to serve. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat, and heat tortillas 15-20 seconds on each side.

Something that really works for me is turkey on a plain whole wheat bagel. I find that I don't get tired of it, and it seems to keep the weight off.
