Recipe

ROASTED CHICKEN WRAPS WITH BLACK BEAN SALSA, ARUGULA, AND GUACAMOLE

6 SERVINGS


This chicken wrap is another one of those reasons I always have a roasted chicken on hand in my refrigerator.

I start my meal by serving a bowl of soup, tortilla soup is perfect, and then serve these wraps filled to the brim for lunch or dinner.I often bring these wraps for lunch on a plane when I’m traveling, and they worked well as school lunches for the kids.

2 to 3 tablespoons Black Bean Salsa (page 276)
2 tablespoons Guacamole (page 19)
6 flour or whole wheat tortillas
2 roasted chicken breasts, diced
4–5 cups arugula leaves

Keep the black bean salsa and guacamole in the refrigerator until you’re ready to assemble the wraps. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
Wrap the tortillas in foil, and heat for 15 minutes. Turn off the oven, but leave the tortillas in the oven to keep them warm until you’re ready to use them.
To assemble each wrap, place 1 tortilla on a warm plate. Keep the remaining tortillas covered. Spread 2 tablespoons guacamole over the entire tortilla. Add ¼ cup of chicken to the bottom third of the tortilla. Place 3 tablespoons bean salsa and 6 to 10 leaves of arugula on top. Roll the tortilla over once, and fold the sides in tightly. Fold into a burrito shape. With the seam side down, place on a cutting board and cut with a sharp knife on the diagonal.
Serve with a generous dollop of guacamole, sour cream, and salsa
