Steps To Make Grilled Chicken Wraps

Step One. Slice chicken breasts in half, place in a ziplock and beat with a mallet or rolling pin to tenderize them. Season the chicken with smoked paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, oregano and pepper. Rub it in all over the chicken well on both sides. Set aside and make the dressing.

Step Two. Combine all ingredients to a small food processor or blender. Blitz until combined, taste and add more sour cream or salt if needed. You can also add 1 Tbsp water to thin the dressing if needed. Set aside.

Step Three. Grill chicken on a grill or stovetop on medium heat. Cook on both sides until it’s cooked through. The internal temperature of the center of the chicken must be at least 165°F Remove the chicken from the grill, and allow it to rest on a plate for 5 minutes.

What to Serve with Grilled Chicken Wrap

Recipe Tips

  • Add a little bit of oil when grilling the chicken to prevent it from sticking to the grill pan. It will also help you achieve a perfect golden sear.
  • To keep the wrap secure, fold in the sides of the tortilla before rolling. For a tight wrap, do the ‘fold then tuck’ technique. Start from the side closest to you to make sure the ingredients stay inside the wrap.

Make Ahead and Storage Tips

These wraps are great for meal prep! Wrap your grilled chicken wraps individually in foil and store them in the refrigerator. They can stay fresh for up to 3 days. For longer storage in the fridge, up to 5 days, wrap the homemade wraps individually with plastic wrap.

    These were excellent. I used leftover grilled chicken from a weekend bbq and it went great with the Parmesan.
