Recipe by Manami
I saw Ina Garten prepare this on the show where she served this at a Beach Volleball Picnic. This combination sounded wondeful! I didn't allow for the cooling time of several hours .Update: 03/28/2009 please be sure to read Shug Avery's review. He is much more knowledgable on the subject than I.;) Update 07.24.2009 - please be aware that curries have different amounts of heat!! Use a little at a time - look at Pink''s review.;) As I stated in the recipe - use sweet/mild curry - that is where the I think the problem is - it depends upon the amount of heat that you may want. Update- 08/07/2009 please use the sweet/mild curry and use a little at a time - I copied the recipe just as it was written - and I editorialized in parentheses. Please read all reviews and the might shed some light on the curry-mania!! ;) I couldn't resist it!!!

- 1 1⁄2 cups good mayonnaise

Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
- Place the chicken breasts on a sheet pan and rub the skin with olive oil.
- Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper.
- Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until the chicken is just cooked.
- Set aside until cool enough to handle.
- Remove the meat from the bones, discard the skin, and shred the chicken in pieces.
- For the dressing, combine the mayonnaise, wine, chutney, curry powder(** use a little at at time!), and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade.
- Process until smooth.
- Combine the chicken with enough dressing to moisten well.
- Add the celery, scallions, and raisins, and mix well.
- Refrigerate for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend.
- Add the cashews to the chicken.
- Fill the center of each tortilla with the chicken mixture.
- Fold the 2 sides of the tortilla over the filling so that the sides overlap.
- Roll the tortilla from bottom to top, and cut in half diagonally.
