What do you want more than anything during a hot Summer day (besides popsicles and an ice cold beverage). . . . . Something light and refreshing that doesn't require you to turn on your oven. This is that perfect recipe. It's healthy, yet fills you up and doesn't leave you filling weighed down. If you have leftover chicken around, you won't even need to turn on any appliances.
I found this idea over at Sweet Little Smoothie a few months ago and have made these at least four times already!! Since Summer is going to be over soon, I figured I better get this recipe posted. You can make these with whatever your favorite veggies are or whatever you have in your fridge. There are so many possibilities with these chicken wraps. This is my favorite version so far.
adapted from: Sweet Little Smoothie
4 chicken tenders or leftover chicken
1/2 c. Italian dressing, for marinating
1/2 c. Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 c. shredded lettuce
1/2 cucumber, cut into thin strips
1 medium tomato, finely diced
Italian dressing, for serving
flour tortillas (or wheat, spinach and tomato flavored)
Place chicken tenders in Italian dressing and let marinate for at least 30 minutes. Cook on the George Foreman or outside on your grill. Cut into strips. Layer your tortilla, lettuce, chicken strips, cucumber slices, tomato and top with cheese. Drizzle with more Italian dressing. Roll up, cut in half and serve. Yield: 2 chicken wraps.
*These ingredients are more of a suggestion, so adjust them to your desired taste. Switch up the dressing, the tortillas, the meat, the veggies (roasted red pepper, onion, mushrooms, zucchini, eggplant, asparagus) and the cheese. Use however much of each ingredient you desire!!
