Tired of the same old lunch each day?  These Crispy Chicken Bacon Ranch Wraps will solve that problem!Did you guys see the news that Kermit the Frog was recently fired?  Well, not Kermit.  The voice of Kermit.  Apparently there was a creative difference in opinion regarding the future of the Muppets.  But that got me thinking.  How exactly does one become a cartoon voice?  At what point do you decide, hey, I’m going to be the voice of a cartoon character?  Don’t get me wrong here.  I think it’s awesome!  I’ve just never thought about the career path for cartoon actors.  Do you have to work your way up through the ranks?  For instance, do you have to prove yourself as Rizzo the Rat and then the Swedish Chef before applying for the job as Kermit?  Or do you just go straight the top when you realize you have the ability to speak like a cartoon frog?

Tired of the same old lunch each day?  These Crispy Chicken Bacon Ranch Wraps will solve that problem!The other day, I was in the kitchen listening to Robbie create “music” while making these Crispy Chicken Bacon Ranch Wraps.  We’ve been on a wrap kick for the past week or so.  Wraps are so easy to make, and you can have fun with the filling.  For us, we always start with Flatout flatbreads as our base.  For these Chicken Bacon Ranch Wraps, we used Flatout’s Light Italian Herb wraps.  These wraps are quite tasty, and each one is only 90 calories with 9g of protein.  That’s a nice, easy way to keep lunches and dinners on the healthy side!

Tired of the same old lunch each day?  These Crispy Chicken Bacon Ranch Wraps will solve that problem!I grilled up a couple of chicken breasts and then layered these wraps with a bit of bacon, shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and of course ranch dressing.  And to mix things up a bit, I toasted these Crispy Chicken Bacon Ranch Wraps in a grill pan for a couple of minutes.  The result was delicious!  Think overstuffed quesadilla kinda delicious.  We tried to get Robbie to nibble on a wrap, but he’s still being a pretty picky eater when it comes to anything other than fruit.  That’s ok.  He’ll come around.  In the meantime, Laura and I chowed down on these wraps for lunch while Robbie entertained us with an original musical performance.

  1. Awwww, Robbie is such a sweetheart to put on a show while you eat :). My cousin’s son loved his toy piano as a little guy and now he plays several instruments and is realllllllly good! I have a feeling Robbie will follow in his footsteps. As for Kermit–I had not heard that news! But I had a good giggle thinking of someone paying his dues as Rizzo before hitting it big as Kermit, haha! These wraps look fantastic; why are wraps just so good?

    1. Hah! Robbie’s piano playing during a meal is almost like going out to a fancy restaurant. 🙂 But, yes, I’m thinking Robbie is destined to follow the path of your cousin’s son. There has to be a musical instrument involved in his future…the only question is which one. Thanks so much, my friend! I hope your Monday was awesome. And I hope you didn’t look straight at the sun!

  2. Hi David. I don’t know about you, but my appetite (as well as my energy) decreases significantly when it’s hot. So these are perfect, they make a quick and lighter meal. Plus, I’ll bet they are pretty good leftover.

    1. Oh, my appetite definitely decreases during the hot summer months, too…well, to some extent. I swear I’m always hungry. Either that, or I just really like to eat. haha! But, yes, I’m with ya, Dorothy. These wraps do indeed make a great lunch, and it’s fun to mix it up a bit. Laura saw these posted yesterday, and she immediately wanted me to make another batch. 🙂 Hope you guys had fun with the eclipse yesterday. I was thinking about y’all!

  3. I can’t believe he is fired! Who on earth will do his voice now?
    And Robbie sounds like he really has a passion for music and that is so awesome! Can’t wait to try out those wraps!

    1. Oh, they’ve already got a new guy doing the voice of Kermit! (In fact, I think he took over late last year.) I can’t imagine 2 people being able to nail the voice of Kermit so well, but I guess it is indeed possible! Thanks so much, Johlene! 🙂

  4. OK OK, so you post another wrap and I can’t hide the fact that ever since I told you I hated wraps I’ve been enjoying them more than ever recently. I think the issues was all the wraps I had before lacked flavor and pizzaz. But you got me out of my wrap rut David 🙂 I really appreciate that. OMG, I didn’t know Kermit the Frog was fired. I always wanted to do voice-overs, I think it’s a fun job, lots of reading, lots of talking, two things I do really well. Robbie is so musical it’s fun to hear about his little shenanigans. You should get him into some early music lessons. I excelled at the piano, they said I was a natural.

    1. Haha! I totally thought about you when I posted these wraps, Mary. I remember you saying that wraps aren’t your thing. But wraps are just a vessel for all sorts of amazing fillings! (I get it, though…wraps can be really boring without tasty fillings!) I’ve gotta say that “toasting” the wraps a bit in a skillet until they were crunchy on both sides is our new favorite thing. We’ve been toasting all sorts of wraps on the weekends here…just for fun!

      As far as Robbie and music lessons, it’s definitely on our radar for when he gets a little older! That and dance lessons. We actually looked up a dance studio near us, but we decided to wait until he’s a little bit older before we sign him up. But it’s coming… 🙂 Thanks so much, Mary!

  5. I’m still hoping Robbie will become a lavender farmer (Because someone needs to provide me with all lavender, right?). However, career in the music industry does sounds good as well. Let’s the kid decide 🙂 These wraps look delicious, David (No wonder – you’re the king of all kind of wraps).

    1. Hahaha! But here’s the thing, Ben. The world only really needs one lavender farmer. (We all know you consume about half of the world’s lavender by yourself, though. Haha!) I will nevertheless present it as an option to him. I mean he does love smelling the flowers outside in the yard…and I bet a lavender farm would smell amazing! 🙂 As far as wraps, these are one of our favorites! Toasting the outside in a skillet added a whole new level of fun. Thanks so much, my friend!

    1. Yes! Sometimes it’s nice to have a couple of different quick ideas on hand for when you need to mix up the lunchtime routine. Toasting the wraps to make ’em crunchy added a new layer of deliciousness to these! Thanks so much, Manali! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Grace! I’ve gotta say these wraps really turned out well. They are packed with flavor and toasting the wraps in the skillet before serving them added a whole new layer of fun. Give ’em a shot! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!

  6. Robbie sounds like he has some great moves. My grandchildren love to dance too. Whenever they come over they always ask for a dance party, so we put on music and we all dance… so much fun. I would trade in my sandwich for one of these wraps like right now. I would love to take on of these wraps for lunch at work.

    1. Oh, Robbie’s moves are way better than his Dad’s. Haha! In fact, maybe I could Robbie to teach me some moves! 🙂

      And as far as these wraps, they are delicious! I love ‘toasting’ the outside of the wraps in the skillet to add another layer of crunch. I also bet these would pack really well for lunch at work…just save the dressing for right before you eat ’em. 🙂 Thanks so much, Dawn!

  7. Great food and good music too whilst dining? I’m there! Now, bacon, chicken, lettuce, tomatoes and then cheese to? An awesome combination to fill your healthy wraps with if you ask me!

    1. Welllll….”good music” is certainly a stretch, but Robbie will definitely entertain you while you’re eating! Haha! So these wraps turned out quite well, and I really liked ‘toasting’ them in a skillet to add a crunch to ’em. Plus, they’re a great way to mix up the lunchtime routine. Thanks so much, my friend! 🙂

  8. I am a fan of chicken wraps and yours look insanely delicious. On the other note, I also enjoy music in the background when I am alone and cooking. Good that Robbie keeps you and himself entertained with music.

    1. Why thank you very much, Balvinder! Try toasting the wraps in a skillet next time…it adds a whole new layer of fun. 🙂 Also, I do enjoy having music on while I’m in the kitchen…but I usually opt for classic rock or 80’s. But then again Robbie has to learn somehow, right? Haha! Thanks so much, my friend!

  9. Are you saying he’s improvising at two pianos? I think you may have a genius on your hands. Strange coincidence, but I have some Flatout in the kitchen, and probably have all the ingredients to make these wraps! I had in mind something more burrito-like, but you may have just changed my mind.

    1. Haha…yes, he’s indeed improvising using 2 pianos at once. (I should admit that one of the pianos is fashioned after Cookie Monster’s rock band…which I didn’t know Cookie Monster had a rock band, but apparently he does.) So I highly, highly recommend these wraps, Jeff! But even if you go the burrito-esque route, try toasting them in a skillet once they’re made. That extra layer of texture is awesome!! 🙂

  10. How do people even get the idea to try to be cartoon voices? Sometimes I’m surprised when I learn who voices are in animated movies etc. – like the 6+ voices that Hank Azaria does for The Simpsons. I’d like to be a fly on the wall to hear how that comes to be…

    I love that Robbie breaks into dance mode whenever music comes on! Sign of a happy kid I think.

    And these wraps of yours look delicious – like every bite would be different and delicious. Perfect picnic fare for this last little bit of summer.

    1. You and me both, Marissa! And if I recall correctly, Bart is voiced by a woman and I always thought that was awesome. It’s crazy how people can voice cartoons like that! As a kid, I always wanted to be the voice of Scooby Doo. Haha!

      And, yes, I agree with you about these wraps. They are the perfect way to mix it up a bit, and crisping these up in a skillet before serving totally made these even more awesome! 🙂

    1. Well funny that you mention drums, Kathy, as I did get Robbie a toy drum a week or two ago. It’s not a full-out drum set (although they did have those at the store), but it’s just a little toy drum. He loves playing with the drumsticks, and the noise isn’t all that bad. Haha!

      So if you get a chance, try toasting your wraps in a skillet. It changes the whole profile, and they become even more awesome! (I know you have to be at home to do that…but still. Try it!) Thanks so much, my friend. I hope you had an awesome weekend!

  11. I’ve seen some of those videos Laura posts on FB of Robbie bopping to music! That adorable boy of y’alls sure has some rhythm – Btw – it won’t be long before Robbie starts demanding some mullah for entertaining y’all when y’all eat- and if he doesn’t, I need to get Lil Shashi to speak to him about ways to make money before the legal working age! Yes – that child of mine was always trying to con me out of my money! 🙂
    David – you are the wrap king – these sound absolutely delicious – and seeing they are super portable, I need one of these in my non-driving hand when I go to pick Lil Shashi up from college today!

    1. Oh, yes, we can’t help but post some of these videos of Robbie dancing. They are seriously hilarious! Oh, please keep Lil Shashi away from Robbie! You know we love Lil Shashi, but I can’t have her teaching him any bad habits about ways to con us out of money. Hahaha! 🙂

      And thank you for the kind words about these wraps. Toasting them in a skillet totally changed them into something even more awesome! Try toasting your wraps next time you make ’em. And Happy Monday, Shashi!

    1. For sure, Agness! Toasting the wraps was such a fun little twist at the end, and we loved eating these wraps for lunches on the weekends. 🙂 Speaking of weekends, I hope you had a great one!

  12. What is America coming to? Who fires Kermit? Who fires a frog? I need to make a wrap and then give this some deep thought. All I can say is look out Miss Piggy! With your attitude, you could be next!

    1. Hey Barbara! I couldn’t agree more. I mean fire a frog? What the heck!? I also agree that some deep thinking is in order here. And deep thinking always goes better when accompanied by yummy food! 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!!
