Grilled Tomato Basil Chicken Wrap with Bacon

This is one of my old Weight Watchers standby recipes.  The fat has been lowered, so it's all about adding in some flavor pops here. A little Tiger sauce or your favorite hot sauce infused into some light mayo. A boneless skinless chicken breast enhanced with a generous sprinkling of some tomato, basil and garlic seasoning and grilled, and just a bit of salsa at the end, and you got yourself a flavorful wrap here.  Now, even when I'm trying to eat lighter, I still prefer to use real bacon many times rather than turkey bacon. And while I don't mind light mayonnaise, I don't care for most fat free foods at all. So I prefer to use certain "regular" products and just less of them, but to reduce points, you can certainly change those things and use a low fat tortilla instead of the spinach one I used.

Now, let's get to buildin' a wrap!

First, douse both sides of a 4 ounce boneless, skinless chicken breast with Mrs. Dash Tomato, Basil and Garlic Seasoning Blend. Then cut one strip of bacon in half ... well I cut it in half so it fits nicely on my tabletop grill. So pull out your George Foreman grill (don't cha just love that thing?) or a stovetop grill if George doesn't grace your kitchen, and put 'em both on there. Grill until chicken is cooked through and the bacon is the way ya like it.

Stir a teaspoon of light mayo with some Tiger sauce (or other hot sauce) and spread it on top of a spinach tortilla. You'll need to leave a border around the edge through all of the layering for folding and rolling the tortilla up.

Shred some lettuce and spread that on top. I used red leaf here.

Take two thick slices of red onion and spread them on top of the lettuce.

Slice up 1/4 of a tomato and spread that around on top.

Slice the chicken breast and add that.

Break the bacon up and add that to the top.

Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of that.

Top with salsa.


Fold the right and the left sides in toward the middle and around the filling; then fold the bottom up toward the center and begin to roll the tortilla up, rolling it away from you toward the top and tucking the filling in as you go if it begins to squeeze out of the top. Sorry I couldn't snap a picture of this step, but it's pretty much a two-handed process, so I didn't have a free hand. And I was gettin' hungry by this time. So I was in a hurry. Roll it all the way up to look like a burrito.

Cut in half at an angle and enjoy!

10 Weight Watchers points as posted - adjust points down by using lower fat products such as turkey bacon, low or fat free cheeses, and a low fat tortilla wrap.

  5. Just stumbled upon your site today. To my shame, I'm a South Louisiana girl that can hardly boil water. I've always been afraid to get in there and just do it. Thanks so much for making your recipes easy to follow. I appreciate you taking the time to include pictures. I now have more confidence that I can actually do this. I'm excited! Thanks again!
