Italian Chicken Wraps~My Way


Well, today is supposed to be day four of the Ultimate Blog Challenge, but it's only day two for me, so I have some catching up to do already.  Life just got super busy and I found it hard to be able to sit at the computer the past few days to get anything done.

Anyway, this post will be short and to the point.

A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that I had some canned chicken that I hadn't used yet.  Since I was looking for a quick lunch idea for the hubby, I decided to just make something up as I went along, and out of that came my idea of Italian Chicken Wraps.

They were surprisingly good and I will definitely be making them again.  Side note:  I never tasted or even really knew about canned chicken before a few weeks ago.  I am not a big fan of canned meats in general I think, but I purchased it while I was buying some tuna (they are right next to each other on the shelf in my local grocery store).  I purchased only one can and figured if it wasn't good, I was only out about $2.  Canned chicken is fairly good for what it is, and the brand I purchased was even 98% fat free, which was even better.  So, without further ado, here is the recipe. 


Italian Chicken Wraps
Makes 2+ Wraps  

Ingredients:
1 14.5 ounce can of Stewed Tomatoes 
1 12.5 ounce can of Premium Chunk White Chicken (Drained)
2 Tbsp McCormick Perfect Pinch Italian Seasoning
2 Burrito Sized Tortilla 
2 Tbsp Oil (cook's choice, but I used vegetable oil)
1 Tsp Crushed or Minced Garlic
1/2 Cup of Pepper Stir Fry (I use the food processor to puree the stir fry veggies, measure out what I need and freeze the rest for future uses.) 
1 Cup Shredded Cheese (Preferably mozzarella, but I used cheddar and it was delicious)

Directions:
1.  In a medium to large size skillet, place the oil, garlic and stir fry vegetables and cook on medium heat for about 3 minutes.
2.  Add the chicken and cook for another 4 minutes. Mixing after every 2 minutes.
3.  Add the stewed tomatoes and the Italian Seasoning.  Mix well, and let simmer on a medium-low heat for about 15 minutes or until the juices have thickened and simmered down.  (Note: You should not have a runny chicken mixture if it's cooked long enough).  Also take care to watch your heat and stirring as to not burn your mixture.
4.  Place about a 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture on a tortilla, top with shredded cheese and fold into desired wrap style.
5.  Enjoy!

Please note that I am aspiring food blogger, and I am also just beginning to learn how to properly use my little camera's settings, so bear with me as I hope to bring better images and a better way to share my recipes in the months to come.  
My husband and I really enjoyed this simple lunch idea.  It was quick and easy to make, and very filling.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a beautiful, blessed day.
Ashley

  3. I'm bookmarking this for sure! I'm a vegetarian so cooking meat for my fiance can be tough sometimes. It's not that it bothers me, it's that I don't really remember what it tastes like so I have trouble mixing good flavors! Always need more recipes.

  9. Looks so yummy!! Do you steam or lightly fry the tortillas to get them soft enough to wrap?
