Summertime Wrap – Chicken Tarragon Wrap

Posted by casey on May 27, 2010 in In The Kitchen, The Main Show |

Perfect for a light summer dinner or a refreshing lunch, these summertime wraps are simple and tasty! Yes, wrap, not rap.  I’ll show you my rhyming and beat skills later.

Tarragon Chicken and Avocado Wraps
2 Cups Diced Chicken (If you’re in a hurry snag a cooked rotisserie chicken from your store.  If not, I suggest grilled or pan seared chicken breasts)
1 Lemon
1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
1/2 Tablespoon Dried Tarragon or 2 Tablespoons Fresh
1 Avocado Cubed
Chopped Romaine
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Pitas, Tortillas or Flatbread
Grated Parmesan

To Make the Dressing:
Squeeze 1 1/2 Tablespoons of lemon juice into a bowl.  Add the mayonnaise and tarragon and stir to combine.  Set aside in the fridge while you assemble the rest.

Once your chicken is cooked whether you cooked it yourself or bought it that way chop it into cubes and toss the chicken and the cubed avocados with the dressing.  Season to taste with salt and pepper to your liking.  You can make the dressing ahead of time and even toss the chicken with it in advance but do not cut and add the avocado until you are ready to assemble the wraps.

Chop up your romaine into thin slices.  If you chop it into large salad like pieces it will be difficult to fit everything into your wrap.

Personally I think that pitas or flatbread work the best for a dish like this, and I really love “Flatout Healthy Grain Flatbread”.  In most groceries they carry these or similar types near the deli meat counter not in the bakery or bread aisle.

Now, depending on who you are serving you can either assemble all of the wraps yourself or, you can lay out the simple materials and let your hungry audience do it themselves.  I like the latter.  I’m just saying.  Also, this particular recipe makes enough for 4 wraps, so be warned if you need more than that!

For lunch some crisp fresh veggies, or fruit makes the perfect side dish and at dinner we served it with a lighter soup just to help fill you up some more.  Regardless it is a simple and cheap summertime meal which puts it up at the top of my list!
