I love anything caprese. Caprese salad, caprese pasta, caprese grilled cheese...oh yum! Something about the combination of creamy fresh mozzarella, sweet and fragrant basil, and fresh juicy tomatoes. Yes I am drooling over here! When I saw this recipe for Caprese Wraps with Chicken from Cooking Light I immediately fell in love. Now I am 100% positive the original recipe is fantastic, but I wanted more of a punch out of my wrap so I did change it up slightly :)
|Oh my goodness! Isn't that a drool worthy wrap?!?|
Chicken and Spinach Caprese Wraps adapted from Cooking Light
2 TBS olive oil
2 TBS white wine vinegar (I think balsamic vinegar would be fantastic!)
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
4 cups baby spinach
2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken (skin removed)
6 oz fresh mozzarella, cubed
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
6 whole grain flat bread
- Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper
- Add the spinach, mozzarella, basil, and tomatoes and toss to coat
- Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and cook flat bread one at a time 1 minute per side
- Place about 1-1.5 cups filling per flat bread, roll up, and enjoy!
This is definitely a new favorite of mine. It is so simple, fragrant, and just an all around beautiful dish! It would be a great lunch o serve with some fresh fruit and you have a well balanced dinner. Either way...YUM!
