Balsamic Chicken Wraps


I make these Balsamic Chicken Wraps almost weekly. These are the number one request from my boys. Healthy and so very versital these too, have become my favorite. The name comes from the Balsamic marinade that the chicken breast soak in overnight. I have learned to make a double batch as these make for wonderful lunches the next day or Dinner on the run for families looking to feed their kids healthy during busy schedules, just wrap them up and these babies can be eaten on the run! The topping options are endless, though the boys favorite is with ranch dressing, I love to make mine ceasar style with fresh grated parmesan and a fat-free Ceasar dressing.

Marinade for 4-6 Chicken breast
1/3 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
1/3 Cup Olive Oil
1/4 Cup water
1 Tbs diced garlic ( I like to use the jar kind)
1 tsp Cayenne pepper
1 tsp paparika
1 Tbs Adobo seasoning (Goya is the brand I use)
1 tsp black pepper

Mix ingredients and pour into a large ziploc bag with 4-6 chicken breast and marinate for 24 hours. I usually do this the night before and the next morning before work, I will massage bag working in the marinade. When I get home, I massage again. Always put bag in a bowl in case of leakage. Remove bag from Refridgerator at least 20 minutes before grilling. Let meat rest at least 5 minutes on cutting board before slicing.

Toppings:

Romaine lettuce (shredded)
Cheese (shredded, cheddar, parmesian, ohhh, what about a pepper jack?)
Tomato (diced)
Peppers
Avocado
Bacon
Ranch dressing
Ceasar dressing
Honey-mustard
Try experimenting with the various flavored Tortillas (sun dried tomato, or spinach)

Get Creative!!! Hope your family loves them as much as mine!

  1. Looks delicious and healthy at the same time! That’d be a great thing to make at the beginning of a week for a healthy snack when you don’t have time to make something later on.

  2. You are so right, Bob! These have saved me many times! I can make 6-8 breasts, have the cheese shredded, veggies sliced…I always use romaine lettuce sliced (it keeps better with the dresssing for on the go) and it will all be gone in less than 3 days! No leftovers with this recipe!
