One of my new favorite things to make since learning how to blanch chicken is coming up with variations of chicken wraps at home. Over the past few months, chicken wraps have become one of my go to quick lunch or dinners that I make when I don't feel like cooking or only feel like doing what I call "low effort cooking". If you have some romaine lettuce on hand, some boneless skinless chicken breasts, some tortillas, and some Caesar dressing, you're good to go for a quick meal. Oh and don't worry if you have trouble folding the wrap like a burrito, it all goes down the same and you can eat it like a taco even if it seems blasphemous to do so :). For an extra healthy boost, you can add carrots and use low carb tortillas. The next time you are in a low effort cooking mood, why not try this recipe?
-1 boneless skinless chicken breast (chopped into small pieces)
-1 tsp. McCormick Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning
-a handful of julienned carrots (opt)
-1 cup shredded or chopped romaine lettuce
-your choice of Caesar salad dressing
-soft tortillas (I use the Carb Balance brand)
-2 cups of water for blanching the chicken
-1 tbs. olive oil for chicken
Season the chicken with the rotisserie chicken seasoning. Decide whether you want to blanch your chicken or cook it in a pan. If blanching, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add chicken, cover, and cook on low heat for 8 minutes. Drain. If cooking in a pan, heat 1 tbs. olive oil on medium heat. Add chicken and cook until browned about 6 minutes.
Lay one tortilla on top of a cutting board or clean surface. Spread 1/2 tbs. of Caesar dressing on the middle of the tortilla. Add a small handful of the lettuce and carrots. Place about 5 pieces of the chicken on top. Drizzle another 1/2 tbs. Caesar dressing on top of everything. Sprinkle some grated parmesan.
You can serve the wrap like a taco or fold it into a burrito. If you want to make it into a wrap, fold one end of the tortilla halfway and make sure to tightly tuck everything in the middle of the tortilla into the part you're folding over. Fold the ends and roll. Using a butcher's knife or big knife, hold down the wrap and gently cut in the middle. Serve and enjoy!
