Made hearty with shredded chicken, these easy sandwiches can be endlessly adapted to suit any taste.
1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 teaspoon minced fresh tarragon
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
4 (2.8-ounce) whole wheat flatbreads (such as Flatout)
2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
2 cups chopped tomato (about 2 medium)
4 center-cut bacon slices, cooked and drained
2 cups shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast
How to Make It
Combine reduced-fat mayonnaise, minced tarragon, and fresh lemon juice in a small bowl. Spread 2 tablespoons mayonnaise mixture over each flatbread. Top each with 1/2 cup shredded romaine lettuce, 1/2 cup chopped tomato, 1 bacon slice, crumbled, and 1/2 cup chicken. Roll up.
Some of my favorite recipes have come from MyRecipes.com. They are quick and easy and healthy. Not only are you given the recipe but are also shown a quick video of how to cook it. It has really helped me with new ideas for dinner. I recommend it for all.
With a little upgrade in the comfort factor area these were pretty good. I used home made mayo instead of the low fat stuff, reduced both the tomato and shredded lettuce by half, added 1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar, 1 whole avocado sliced and 6 strips of thick sliced bacon instead of 4. I made them with jumbo sized (13") flour tortillas instead of flat bread. This made 2 perfect sized wraps for dinner for my partner and me.
This won't knock your socks off but it is very good. I like the use of flatbread - my first experience with it. I used dried tarragon instead fresh - it would have been better with fresh herbs. I did add avocado and a little shredded cheddar. The cheddar didn't add enough to warrant the calories but the avocado did. I do like the other reviewers suggestion to add dried cranberries though. I will make again. I made it for dinner with garlic roasted potatoes. The consensus was that is would have made a better lunch than a dinner.
This makes a great lunch or light dinner. I made it as directed the first time through to get a feeling for the flavors and really enjoyed it. I mad a second roll-up for lunch the following day and added some dried cranberries and crumbled bleu cheese; really added a new level to the taste. Will make again.
