Grilled Chicken Wraps

A nice summer grilled dinner is one of our favorites and Bar B Que chicken is a wonderful mix.  We found a great idea for a BBQ chicken grilled wrap  from Recipes for Healthy Living that has become a staple this summer – especially with our baked sweet potato fries.  To keep it low carb friendly, I spent time finding the best BBQ sauce.  For us it was Marks’ Feed Store Sauce, a local restaurant.  Their sauces have only 7 g carbs for 2 Tbsp.  You can also search for a new favorite sauce at your local grocery!  Hope you enjoy!
