Tuscan Chicken Wrap Ingredients:

For the Tuscan Chicken:

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning (a blend of oregano, basil, and thyme)
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon

For the Tuscan Spread:

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained and chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

For the Wrap:

  • 4 large tortillas
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 1 cup roasted red bell peppers, sliced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
  • Balsamic glaze (optional, for drizzling)

Tuscan Chicken Wrap Instructions:

Step 1: Prepare the Tuscan Chicken

  1. Season the chicken breasts with dried Italian seasoning, salt, and black pepper.
  2. In a skillet over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil. Add the minced garlic and cook for about 30 seconds until fragrant.
  3. Add the seasoned chicken breasts to the skillet and cook for about 5-6 minutes per side, or until they are cooked through and have a golden-brown exterior.
  4. During the last few minutes of cooking, add the lemon zest and juice to the skillet. This will create a flavorful pan sauce. Once the chicken is done, remove it from the skillet and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it into thin strips.

Step 2: Make the Tuscan Spread

  1. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, chopped sun-dried tomatoes, capers, and minced garlic. Mix until the ingredients are well incorporated.

Step 3: Assemble the Tuscan Chicken Wrap

  1. Lay out a tortilla and spread a generous spoonful of the Tuscan spread over it.
  2. Place a portion of the sliced Tuscan chicken in the center of the tortilla.
  3. Top the chicken with fresh baby spinach leaves, roasted red bell peppers, crumbled feta cheese, and fresh basil leaves.
  4. If desired, drizzle a bit of balsamic glaze over the ingredients.

Step 4: Wrap and Serve

  1. Fold in the sides of the tortilla and then roll it up from the bottom, creating a wrap.
  2. Slice the Tuscan Chicken Wrap in half diagonally for a beautiful presentation.
  3. Serve your flavorful Tuscan Chicken Wrap and enjoy the Mediterranean-inspired flavors.
