When my kid gets bored of regular rice, curry and roti, I generally make different kinds of wraps to ensure he still eats nutritious food. I came across Italian wraps in restaurants when I decided to try it out at home and it really was good. Easy to make and delightful in taste, these can be easily packed for kid’s lunch box too. The best part is that it’s not only tasty but equally nutritious. If you do not have chicken at home then you can easily substitute it with Soya or Cottage Cheese too so even if you are Vegetarian, you can still make Italian Veg wraps

So next time when you are in hurry and want to something healthy, then do try out this dish and you will not be disappointed 🙂

Preparation time: 20 mins Cooking time: 25 mins Total time: 45 mins

Servings : 4

Ingredients

  • 230 g Boneless Chicken Breast
  • 4 Tortillas /Rotis
  • 1/2 Of Big Bell Pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt or to taste
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Pepper Or To Taste
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 8 Small thinly sliced Mozzarella Cheese Or 1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 4 Tbsp Chopped Olives
  • 4 Tbsp Mayonnaise or any Salad Dressing
  • 10-12 fresh Basil Leaves
  • 4 Tbsp chopped Lettuce Optional
  • 4 Slices thinly sliced Tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon Salt Or To Taste
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon extra virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper

Steps to prepare

  • Place bell pepper on baking tray lined with foil and bake for 15-20 minutes until sides are well charred and skin is completely wrinkled. Turn them around in between to ensure even roasting. on cooling, discard the peels, slice them into pieces
  • Add 1/8 teaspoon salt, pepper, garlic powder and bell pepper in a bowl. Now add vinegar, Italian seasoning, olive oil and mix well. Keep it aside. It’s best to prepare roasted peppers ahead of time as they taste better on resting. You can skip adding the pepper in the recipe and directly proceed with the next step for wraps too
  • While pepper is roasting, slice boneless chicken breast horizontally, this well help in easier and even cooking. Marinate with salt and pepper. Rest aside for 10-15 minutes
  • Heat butter in non-stick pan over medium heat. Add chicken breast and cook on both sides until golden brown and juices run clear when pierced with fork
  • Cut chicken into thin strips and keep it aside
  • If using parmesan cheese then mix mayonnaise and cheese in a bowl place tortilla on serving plate
  • Spread cheese mixture on it. If using mozzarella cheese then spread mayonnaise on tortilla and place thinly sliced cheese on one side of the tortilla. I have used Mozzarella cheese as its difficult to get Parmesan cheese where I live
  • Now place the roasted pepper mix and chicken strips, top with lettuce, olives, tomato, basil. You can always reduce or increase the quantity of toppings as desired
  • Roll the tortilla and wrap up like burritos. Serve as is or with sauce
