Standard

Ingredients :
1 brown rice tortilla
Grilled chicken (I used our leftover Cajun chicken from the other night)
Shredded cheese (I used Daiya mozzarella)

Directions :
1. Fold tortilla in half and reopen.
2. Fill one half of tortilla with chicken and cheese.
3. Close tortilla.
4. Microwave for 30 seconds.  (If using a dairy free cheese do 45 seconds as it takes longer to melt.)

Please note,  I serve with carrots or salad and am satisfied.  If I were making for my husband,  I would fill a whole tortilla and put a second tortilla on top.
