This is a recipe that came to mind as I was cleaning my house yesterday (that is one thing I do not fail at during the summer!) and was organizing our "library" (books crammed into the shelving in the end table). I had bought a "wraps" recipe book at Goodwill for $.25, mostly because it had great photography of the recipes. Dumb, I know. Now that I've gone through it, I can say I really would only eat 5% of the recipes, but it did give me a great idea for dinner!
You can use any cooked chicken you like, but I threw 4 chicken breasts with some water, garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper in the crock pot for a few hours so that I didn't have to heat my house with the oven. I like to buy whole bone-in breasts when they are super cheap and just peel off the skin and cook on the bone. The chicken is always so much more tender than when I buy boneless skinless breasts and the whole breasts still have the tender attached. Delicious. Plus I can make stock with the leftover bones. Booyah.
Chicken Bacon Ranch Wraps
- 4 Chicken Breasts
- Bacon, cooked and chopped (amount is at your discretion. I will confess I like to buy the precooked stuff because it's cheaper and we don't need a full pound)
- Tomato- fresh from our garden!
- Diced fresh jalapenos- fresh from our garden! (obviously can be left out)
- Whole Wheat Tortillas
- Green Onions
- Ranch Dressing (you will want a trough of this stuff. Seriously. I put it in my wrap and dipped it!)
Our only regret was buying small tortillas! Simple, yet something different you can do with chicken.
