Here’s an idea to make your picnics interesting yet stress free for the person hosting the occasion. A chicken-and-cream-cheese pancake/crepe wrap is another practical idea. The pancake/wrap has the advantage of keeping the chicken cool. For picnics I prefer using cream cheese rather than mayonnaise. The sustainability of the raw egg in the mayonnaise is questionable.
