Dinner in a Hurry - Smoked Chicken Roll Ups

"Dinner in a hurry can be as simple as rolling up a tortilla filled with healthy ingredients. For a great "brown bag" lunch, roll into waxed paper and twist the ends, party-cracker style."

  1. Dear CL, I made this recipe using chapatis as Tortillas are not easily avlbl. This was the first time we have tasted avacado I bought just one for this recipe (expensive) may be I will not use it the next time. Not used to the taste I guess or maybe the quality of the fruit I bought was not good. :)I used home made sour cream (with yoghurt and cornflour) and a combo of spring onion and coriander. It was pretty good apart from the avocado. :) Fay


In the words of Tracy Byrd, "I'm from the country & I like it that way"!! On May 1, 2008 my husband and I started a new adventure. We'll be living in a 37 foot RV while our new home is under construction. Its out in the country on a dead end dirt road with lots of trees. For the next 4 months or so, most meals will be cooked on the BBQ and life will be full of challenges! We love spending quality time with our friends & family - especially the grandkids!! The photo is 4 generations - my 84 year old mother, myself, my daughter & my youngest granddaughter - taken at the end of 2006. I've participated in many contests & events here on Zaar but this is the first banner that I've posted.
