Chicken and Spinach Caprese Wraps

Featured at:


Hubby Made Me Miz Helen’s Country Cottage

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!
