Rustic Balsamic Chicken Wraps

Here's a nice light meal that works as dinner or even lunch.  You can easily make the chicken the night before and slice it up and make this wrap right at work.  You don't even need to heat the chicken, if you want to be completely honest... just throw everything into the tortilla and eat away!  Dinner or lunch, either way, this is a definite must try.

Rustic Balsamic Chicken Wraps
Adapted from Better Homes and Gardens
Printable Recipe 
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley
2 cups greens (green leaf lettuce, spring mix, whatever you want)
1/2 cup tomatoes, chopped
1/4 English cucumber, sliced
2 Tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese
4 large flour tortillas

Mix together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, Italian seasoning, garlic and parsley until well combined.  Remove 1 Tablespoon of the mixture and set aside.  Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over.  Seal and place in refrigerator for at least 2 hour.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Clean and oil grill grates.  Remove chicken from bag and discard marinade.  Place chicken over direct heat and grill 8-10 minutes per side or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.  Remove and allow to cool at least 10 minutes before thinly slicing.

Toss the greens with the reserved balsamic mixture and place evenly amount the tortillas.  Top with tomatoes, cucumber, sliced chicken and parmesan cheese.  Serve and enjoy!

As they say in the movie biz, that's a wrap.

That sounds tasty. I have a bottle of raspberry balsamic that I need to use up. Thinking it'd be yum indeed here!!

That sandwich looks so, so good! And it's lunchtime ... and I don't have the ingredients ... and I'm sitting at my desk now obsessing and fixating on this ... :(

Mary said...

This looks delicious and much better than the cheese and crackers I snacked on for lunch today!

Jenn, this sounds great! The sad thing is I just cooked 2 chicken breasts for dinner tonight and wish I would've seen this first. Next time!

Pam said...

Jenn, this looks fabulous and lite and healthful! Where were you tonight when I was walking through the doorway of a WAFFLE HOUSE in NE Kansas with my husband and son to eat a microscopic sirloin steak and greasy hash browns with a dessert of M&Ms!(I know, makes me sick just thinking of it. It's like an out of body experience, I saw myself doing this in slow motion. Pathetic!) ANYWAY, the wrap looks wonderful.

I think I would like it cold, as you mentioned. Yummy at lunch and the lettuce doesn't wilt before you finish eating it that way.
