Storage and Prep Ahead
You can store the wrap individually wrapped in foil. Keep it in an air-tight container for up to 3 days.
To store the wraps, here are a few points to take care of.
- Make sure that the chicken is cooled down completely before adding it to the wrap. Else the juices from grilled chicken will make the wrap soggy.
- The lettuce should be dry. In case there are water droplets, pat it dry with a kitchen towel.
- if storing the wraps, make sure they are completely cooled down, else it will steam, in turn, make the wrap soggy.
