Asian Chicken Sandwich

0 from 0 votes

Bite into a satisfying and wholesome sandwich with an Asian twist!

Our Asian chicken sandwich hits the spot at lunchtime and hits all of its marks when it comes to nutrition! Chicken is packed with lean protein and potassium, whole grain bread is filled with fiber and is low on the glycemic index, and we’ve filled this sandwich with a number of crunchy vitamin and antioxidant-rich veggies. And with a dash of vegan mayo, olive oil, and Sriracha, you’ve got a sandwich that’s bursting with flavor but light on fat and cholesterol.

  1. Hi, while I love all bread, it adds a lot of points. I use Flat out flat bread and the one I use has 2 pts. for one wrap. In this recipe, how can I change bread points for the flatbread? Thanks!

    1. Beverly, One serving of flat bread is approximately 2-3 smart points, depending on the size and thickness.
