easy chicken wraps recipe-
We like to keep lunch simple during the summer. This chicken wrap is definitely a favorite. The chicken breast is sautéed until crispy on the outside and so juicy on the inside. The chicken combined with the bacon, veggies, avocado and a spicy Ranch is seriously a keeper recipe. I especially love that all of the ingredients are most likely already in your fridge.
Though the chicken is best served hot, it can also be enjoyed cold.
what do you put on a wrap?
What I love most about wraps is they are so forgiving and versatile. Once you cook the chicken, the stuffing can really be tweaked every time with whatever ingredients you have in the fridge. Here are some great toppings to add to the chicken:
- PROTEIN: Chicken and bacon are great. You can also use fish or shrimp if you like seafood.
- VEGETABLES: Lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, avocado are all great. You can also add cucumbers, pepper and jalapenos if you like. (TIP: The vegetables can either be sliced, cubed or finely shredded.)
- DRESSING: You don’t want the wrap to taste dry. Some mayo, Ranch or Chipotle Ranch like we use in this recipe are all great options.
what kind tortilla is good for a wrap?
We prefer flour tortillas for wraps. You can either get the large burrito size tortillas or medium taco size, whatever your personal preference. My hubby likes his wrapped like a burrito so I use a large tortilla for him, I just like to fold mine as a taco, so I like the medium size. Haha, we are not complicated at all. 😉
what kind of chicken can I use?
Though sautéing a fresh chicken breast is the best, you can reheat a rotisserie chicken or even used canned chicken (hot or cold).
how to make a chicken wraps:
Season and saute the chicken breast until fully cooked, cover to keep warm. Cut bacon into small bite-sized pieces and saute.
Meanwhile, slice lettuce into thin strands (I promise, it tastes the best this way). Slice avocado. Cube tomato or slice. Slice onion into strand or finely chop (or leave out completely if you have a romantic dinner that evening ;).
In a small bowl, whisk together the ranch with hot sauce for a bit of a kick to the already awesome ingredients.
To assemble. Heat tortillas in a skillet or bake in the oven until crispy. Layout the tortilla and top remaining ingredients. Drizzle with ranch. SO GOOD!
NOTE: We used THIS skillet for this recipe and love it.
