Balsamic Sesame Chicken Salad Wraps

I have been really sick for the past 5 days.  If you know me at all, you probably are not shocked.  I catch colds and sicknesses the way other people catch…well, I don’t know what.  But you know what I mean.  If someone around me is sick, then I will definitely get sick.  If no one around me is sick, then I will definitely get sick.  You’d think daily exercise, proper nutrition, and good sleep hygiene would boost my immune system, but it doesn’t.

I made these balsamic sesame chicken salad wraps by Bake Your Day a few weeks ago, because I wanted to make something easy and light.  Well, this is all of the above.  The only issue is that it was kind of bland.  And very dry.  I even added extra liquid ingredients, to zest and liquify it a bit, but that didn’t help.  I am going to post the ingredients as-is, but as a warning, you may want to double the liquid ingredients, add more liquids in, or find an additional glaze (or dipper) to use.

I will say that I loved using the chow mein noodles!  I’m not sure if I have ever bought them before, and they were so yummy, adding a nice crunch!  Now I have a huge container that I need to use up, and I’m looking forward to it.
