Caprese Chicken Wraps, grilled chicken, mozzarella, basil and tomatoes wrapped in a warm flour tortilla and drizzled with balsamic glaze.
Is there any dish more perfect for summer than caprese…. anything? Plump and juicy tomatoes, fresh basil and mozzarella is just one flavor combo that will never go out of style.
It is light, refreshing and you can use this flavor profile so many different ways. Salads, pizza or sandwiches. It is just perfect for these summer months not only because tomatoes and basil are in abundance but after you eat it, you don’t feel weighed down.
There is no worse feeling than stuffing yourself on a scorcher of a day. Eating light like this really helps!
I was on a quest to figure out some new lunch items. It has to be packed full of flavor, caprese style (because… obviously.) and has to be able to get thrown together fast. I was at Walmart, strolling through the refrigerated section and it hit me…. wraps!
I spotted my bff TortillaLand® Flour Tortillas and scooped up a pack!
All I needed was Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing (in the condiments aisle), Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken (freezer section) and cream cheese, I know I’ll get to that later. I already had all the other ingredients on hand at home.
Scallions, basil, tomatoes, romaine lettuce, shredded mozzarella and balsamic glaze are the other ingredients you will need.
What really saves time on these Caprese Chicken Wraps is the Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken, just keep the bag in the freezer and take out what you need for lunch, pop it into a skillet and minutes later you have hot grilled chicken to use any way you please!
Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing is an essential in this recipe because this is where a ton of flavor is going to come from. I put some in my cream cheese spread and toss my lettuce in it.
