Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked and sliced
  • 6 large burrito size tortillas
  • 3 cups lettuce, chopped
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 cups yellow sharp cheddar cheese, grated

Instructions

Cook the chicken

  • Rinse and pat dry chicken breasts. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. Preheat a pan on medium/high heat and add 2 tablespoons olive oil. Place the meat on the skillet and cover with a lid. Cook for about 5-7 minutes, then flip and cook for another 5 minutes. The timing will depend on the size of the chicken. Make sure that the internal temperature will reach 165-170°F.

Assemble the ingredients

  • I like to start with prepping all the ingredients: Slice cooked or grilled chicken, chop lettuce, tomatoes, and avocado, and grate sharp cheddar.
  • Put a large burrito size tortilla on a plate, layer with about ½ cup chopped lettuce, ¼ cup tomatoes, avocado, a tablespoon sour cream, few slices of grilled chicken, and top with ¼ cup grated sharp cheddar.
  • Wrap them like an envelope. Repeat the same with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Preheat a pan on medium high heat (you DON’T need to grease it with oil). Place the wraps with edges down and grill for a couple of minutes,until brown/golden color, then flip and grill on the other side.

Notes

I always like to grill the wraps after assembling them. That will give a delicious crust that provides more texture and flavor.
Usually, I prefer to serve these wraps immediately, so the cheese is still warm and melted. If you want to take them for lunch, just wrap them individually in foil or a zip lock bag.
Don't overfill the tortillas. Otherwise, you won't be able to wrap them.
Chicken. I like to use grilled or pan seared chicken breasts for this recipe, then slice them. If you want you can use cooked, shredded, rotisserie, or any other chicken you have.
Other Ingredients. Feel free to add any other ingredients of your choice, like peppers, onion, bacon, etc.
Sour Cream. I like to add sour cream inside the wraps. So, if you take it to go, you already have everything in one bite! If you eat wraps at home, you can serve it separately.
Tortillas. If you don’t have burrito size tortillas, you can use smaller sizes, like tacos. In this case, you won’t be able to wrap them, but have a taco party!
Can I refrigerate these wraps? Yes. You can put them in the fridge for a few hours, though the cheese won’t be melted any more. I wouldn’t recommend to refrigerate them overnight, because the lettuce won’t stay fresh and avocado will brown.
Can I freeze them? I wouldn’t recommend to freeze these wraps.
