Well, JJ's at it again! Seems he hooked up with the McDaniel gang again and they couldn't wait for some of his tasty dishes. One of the McDaniel's had hooked up with a sweet little girl from Mexico named Carlita. Carlita just loved fiesta colors! On her clothing, In her home, and even in her food. Johnny came up with this yummy recipe just for her. Carlita was so happy that she did a Mexican hat dance for him!
This is a Robin Miller recipe and it's fantatic. I often add a little beef broth and let it simmer for a bit more aus ju. I have also subbed rotel for the diced tomatoes and green chilis with good results. You can't mess this up!
These are very good! They need a 2 hour marinating time for the chicken but that can be done earlier in the day, as with making the rice and then while cooking the chicken you can assemble the wraps and make a nice salad of greens, with spinach, red leaf lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, red bell peppers, black olives, and feta cheese. Lovely! Originally mealsforyou with a bit of tweaking.
Spruce up lunch with this innovative sandwich packed with dried cherries and veggies!
Chicken Cherry Wraps are a lower calorie, lower fat "dress-up" version of the traditional chicken salad. Replacing regular mayonnaise for nonfat yogurt, lowers the fat and adds calcium. Dried cherries and veggies perk up this sandwich, adding nutrients, flavor and color.
There are so many wraps but I think you will find this one a bit different, very hearty and tasty. It can be a "Do ahead" recipe by
preparing all the ingredients ahead of time, place them in the fridge, assemble just before lunch. I like to use a Spring mix Lettuce that has Arugula in it but Iceberg lettuce is fine. The eggs are optional but
they do add flavor.
One of my favorite sandwiches is Schlotzsky's Asian Chicken Wrap. Found the ingredients but was unable to find the actual recipe. This is my version. Tonkatsu is a Japanese sauce that this available in most supermarkets or make your own, recipe included. Do not leave out the cilantro . . it's the most important ingredient. Cooking time includes making your own Tonkatsu sauce.
The original recipe comes from the Gooseberry Patch 'family favorite recipes' cookbooklet, 2005, that I received in a cookbook swap! These can be served for lunch or dinner, or they can be sliced into 1" wide pieces & served, warm or chilled, as appetizers! Preparation time does not include time needed to chill!
