Mesquite Chicken Wrap

Mesquite Chicken Wrap #recipe


IT’S FRIDAY!!!! YEYY! This week was HELLA tough… so much work, plus the weather is not the most loving… It’s warm and nice, but dark clouds know how to spoil a very bright day!

I love Rain, but I don’t like gloomy mornings where I feel like 10 more minutes of sleep would be so appreciated. 
Since Grilling season is coming as well as picnics, I thought to start with delicious grilled recipes. What do y’all say?! Huh? Shall we start?
This wrap was absolutely amazing! If you can imagine Mesquite flavor from the chicken, some sweet and sour salsa, melted cheese and drizzled with Sriracha. Oh, Man! This is one good wrap, don’t you think so, too?! 

I devour this while the kids were in school. I know, pretty selfish of me, but I could not resist it, plus my excuse -it would get soggy if it’s not eaten in 3-4 hours, and we don’t want to waste food, right?! Anyways, the kids took it to school the next day, because I had so much leftover chicken. YEP! This lady doesn’t know how to cook small amount!
Try it, because I know you will love, love it!

Mesquite Chicken Wrap 
Makes:1 wrap | Total Time:25 minutes
prep time:10 min. | cooking time: 15 min.
Ingredients:

  • 3-5 oz (76g-150g) Chicken Breast
  • 1 Tbs. Oil 
  • 1.5 tsp. Mesquite Seasoning (McCormick Grill Mates)
  • 1 Large Tortilla
  • Shredded Cheese Blend 
  • Sriracha 
  • Baby Arugula(salad Rocket)/Spinach or Lettuce 

Topping:

  • 1/4 Mango, diced
  • 1/4 Onion, diced (yellow or red)
  • 1/4 Tomato, diced
  • 1/4 Eng. Cucumber, diced
  • 1/4 Avocado, diced 
  • Cilantro or Parsley, finely chopped

Dressing:

  • Juice from 1/2 Lemon
  • 1 Tbs. Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
  • 1/2 tsp Sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed and minced (powder could be used)
  • Pinch of Red Hot Chili Pepper
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Cut Chicken in strips, oil all over and rub the Mesquite seasoning on the chicken breast. Place on the preheated grill (or you can pan fry it, just add a bit of oil in the pan). Cook on both sides until golden, about 3 minutes per side, depending how thick strips are.
  2. Once the chicken is done, set aside and start dicing salsa. Try to keep everything the same size, and leftover salsa, could be placed in the container and in the fridge. Mix dressing and toss with salsa.
  3. If you are using a grill, place tortilla on the grill, add cheese and chicken, let the cheese completely melt, few minutes. Microwave or preheat oven could be also used!
  4. Add salsa on top, drizzle Sriracha to your preference (I like adding 1 Tbs. of Olive Oil Mayo with Sriracha= so good). Wrap it up and enjoy! 

NOTE*

  • You can use whatever type of salsa you like! This is my standard that I enjoy with many meals, and dressing is my basic dressing and personal favorite!
  • When cooking chicken, internal temperature should be between 165°F-170°F 
  • This also could be added in Pita Bread, or Italian Bread type of bread!
  • ADD crispy BACON if you dare 😛  
I wish you an AWESOME weekend!!!
