Pesto Chicken Wraps Recipe

By Julia Mayeda

TORTILLA INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1 1/2 tbs pesto
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup water

FILLING INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1/2 tbs olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tbs pesto
  • 1 yellow or red pepper
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • lettuce
  • avocado
  • cheese

TORTILLA DIRECTIONS:

  • Mix all ingredients for the tortillas (the dough should be moist but shouldn’t stick to your hands)
  • Pinch off a golf ball size piece
  • Roll out on a floured surface
  • Try to get the tortilla as thin as possible without tearing it
  • Grill each side of your tortilla on a large dry frying pan over low heat for about 30 seconds on each side

FILLING DIRECTIONS:

  • Cook the chicken in a frying pan with the olive oil, salt, and pepper
  • Slice the chicken and generously coat with pesto
  • Cut up your veggies and cheese
  • Assemble your wraps and enjoy!

NOTES:

  • Prep Time: 40 minutes
  • Makes about 5 wraps
  • This can be easily made vegetarian by substituting more of your favorite veggies for the chicken
  • Pesto can be found at most supermarkets in the pasta section
  • You can also make your own pesto using olive oil, basil, garlic, salt, pepper, and pine nuts
