California Chicken Wraps

"I made this healthy recipe from the Taste of Home Feb/March 2011 issue today for lunch and really enjoyed it. I used Sabra roasted pine nut hummus. I usually also dice up kalamata olives and include them in the wrap. This recipe also works fine using Gardein brand faux chickn tenders."

    This is a great wrap and I'll definitely have it again. I used a 100 calorie tortilla so my calorie count is lower than posted. It is jumping right into my 2013 Best of Cookbook...give it a try!

    Loved it - perfect combo of ingredients, plus filling and healthy. I think it should be called the Mediterranean Wrap instead of California Wrap, but can't think of anything else I'd change!

    One of those dishes where the sum of its parts is greater! I used olive hummus and a raw red pepper, and it was nice to have that crunch. I also used a light feta block that DH cut up, and it was a star in this, though all the flavors blend really well together to make for a very tasty dish. Aside from the chicken, I actually increased all the other ingredients by 2-4 times, since the size of the tortilla defnitely accomodated it. I loved the kalamata olives in this, so I wouldn't leave those out, even though they are listed as optional. We also made one just vegetarian, and I thought it was pretty much as good as without the chicken!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I work full-time as a School Psychologist in Michigan. Besides the kids, one of the best aspects of the job is summer vacation, when I can concentrate on doing more of the things that I like to do---like look up recipes and play games on Recipezaar!!! I married my wonderful and handsome husband, Sean, in August 2007. He is becoming a wonderful gardender and tends to both our veggie and herb gardens. We really enjoy cooking with our own fresh ingredients. We most often cook together, so my reviews typically reflect our joint opinions. He's the better cook, so I pick up a lot of my techniques from him. My other interests include reading (now that I have time), Irish dancing (I've taken a class for the last several years), "appreciating" wine (I use the term very loosely), and listening to and going to see Irish bands (I love the Pogues). I also enjoy travelling, especially around Western Europe, where I have been multiple times. One of my favorite places is Italy, and Sean and I had a great time on our honeymoon eating, drinking, and sightseeing in the Cinque Terre and in Tuscany. This July 2009, we expanded our horizons to Eastern Europe and visited the Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Croatia. Two of my favorite dishes on the trip were Croatian: fish brodet and Hvarska gregada. I am looking forward to trying my hand at making them at home as I see that someone on Zaar, who is Croatian, posted recipes for both! Besides my husband, the other lights of my life are my cats: Chloe, Pip, and my newest ragdoll cat, Giselle, all of whom I absolutely adore. <a href="http://s341.photobucket.com/albums/o388/courjen/?action=view¤t=PipChloe_web.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i341.photobucket.com/albums/o388/courjen/PipChloe_web.jpg" border="0" alt="Pip and Chloe"></a> <a href="http://i341.photobucket.com/albums/o388/courjen/Giselle_zaar.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i341.photobucket.com/albums/o388/courjen/Giselle_zaar.jpg" border="0" alt="Giselle"></a> I've participated in the following events: <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt= "Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/calendar%20clips/Copyofsoybean.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> I most recently had the privelege of being on the ZWT5 Team, the Sultans of Spice, with a great group of people.
