Paleo Chicken Katsu Sushi Wrap

Paleo Chicken Tender Sushi Wrap

Whenever I make chicken tenders, I like to make extras for leftovers. In this recipe, I use the leftover chicken tenders to make my own version of a chicken katsu sushi wrap.

First, prepare your paleo sushi rice and place in your fridge.

Chicken Tenders

Cut your chicken tenders into long thin strips.

tamagoyaki

Prepare tamagoyaki, Japanese rolled omelet, I like this recipe

tamagoyaki cut

Cut the tamagoyaki into long thin strips.

fillings

Prepare the fillings for your wrap by cutting a dill pickle, a cucumber, a carrot and lettuce into long thin strips.

paleo sticky rice

Place a sheet of nori onto a sushi mat and cover with paleo rice, leaving about an inch of the seaweed exposed at the top.

fillings

Place your fillings in the center of the sheet (including your sauce if you choose to use one).

paleo sushi wrap

Place your thumbs underneath the mat, using your other fingers to hold the fillings in place and begin to roll away from you until the bottom reaches the top. Once you have rolled it, you can shape it by squeezing the roll firmly for a few seconds. Cut in half and enjoy :)
