Greek Chicken Wraps

College cooking must be simple and quick. And, there is no better ingredient than store-bought roasted chicken to lighten your load. Especially on the weekends I don't want to spend all of my free time in the kitchen, but I also do not want to spend money eating out for cheap food. 


Fast food will run you easily $7-12 / meal with drink and sides for which you could buy a rotisserie chicken to provide several meals. All you need is a few additional ingredients to turn roasted chicken into awesomeness.



Today's recipe features doing exactly that! Other recipes utilizing store-bought roasted chicken include Simple Chicken Enchiladas, Avgolemono Soup. Chicken Tortilla Soup, and soon to be posted Buffalo Chicken Dip--just in time for March Madness and the Final Four!
