A delicious high protein wrap, that is kidney and lunchbox friendly. It’s also low in potassium and phosphate, so is ideal to take to dialysis.


175g cooked chicken

50g mayonnaise

1 garlic clove, crushed

50g piece of Parmesan cheese

100g iceberg lettuce, roughly chopped

¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Black pepper

4 soft tortillas


  1. Step 1

    Shred the cooked chicken into strips and add to a bowl with the chopped lettuce leaves and crushed garlic.

  2. Step 2

    Shave thin slices of the parmesan into the bowl, then add the mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce and stir gently to combine, seasoning with pepper.

  3. Step 3

    To assemble the wraps, spoon ¼ of the mixture onto the bottom half of a tortilla. Fold the bottom of the tortilla up and over the filling.

  4. Step 4

    Make two folds on either side and roll it up tightly. Repeat with the remaining three tortillas. Eat whole or cut in half to serve immediately, or wrap in foil to keep whole until you want to eat it.
