Grilled Tomato Basil Chicken Wrap with Bacon

This is a revision of one of my old Weight Watchers standby recipes, so yes, though the fat has been reduced a tad, it's all about adding in some flavor pops here with a little Tiger sauce or your favorite hot sauce infused into some mayo.

Boneless skinless chicken breasts are enhanced with a generous sprinkling of some tomato, basil and garlic seasoning and grilled, added to a flour tortilla, spinach here, filled with veggies and topped with just a bit of salsa, making for a pretty flavorful wrap.

The original recipe called for turkey bacon, if I recall correctly, but I'm not a big fan of it. I still prefer to use real bacon and while I don't mind lighter products like a light mayo, I don't care for most fat-free foods at all, and in fact, they are often confusing to me.

Occasionally, The Cajun will accidentally grab fat free half and half at the store. My question is... how can half and half be fat free?? I mean, it's supposed to be half milk, half cream and there ain't nothing fat free about either!

So, bottom line is that I would much rather use "regular" fat 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.

As always, full recipe text with measurements and instructions, as well as a printable document, are a little bit further down the page. Just swipe or scroll past the step-by-step pictures below.

Now, let's get to buildin' this wrap y'all!

First, generously season both sides of some boneless, skinless chicken breasts with Mrs. Dash Tomato, Basil and Garlic Seasoning Blend. If that's not something you keep on hand, Mrs. Dash contains in part, garlic, basil, parsley, chili peppers, paprika, bay leaf, marjoram, oregano, thyme, savory, cayenne pepper, coriander, cumin and rosemary so you can use a tiny bit of some or all of those elements for seasoning. You're already adding fresh tomato.

Cook bacon to crisp. Since I'm only cooking one chicken breast and using an indoor grill I'm also cooking the bacon on it. Grill until chicken is cooked through and the bacon is the way ya like it. Let the chicken rest before slicing it. Update: I still have my George Foreman grill, and my Hamilton Beach Searing Grill purchased after that, though my newest indoor grill is the Ninja Foodie grill and I absolutely LOVE it!

Stir together some mayonnaise and Tiger sauce, or other hot pepper sauce you love, and spread that evenly between the tortillas. I'm using a spinach tortilla here. 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 of each tortilla. I used red leaf here.

Add thick slices of red onion and spread them on top of the lettuce. Sweet onion is fine too.

Slice the fresh tomato and distribute that between the tortillas.

Evenly distribute slices of the grilled chicken breast on each tortilla.

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 these steps, 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. So good y'all!

Grilled Tomato Basil Chicken Wrap with Bacon

Yield: 4 Servings
Author: Deep South Dish
Prep time: 15 MinCook time: 15 MinTotal time: 30 Min
Boneless, skinless chicken breast, seasoned generously and grilled, sliced and wrapped along with some veggies, in a flour tortilla.

Ingredients

  • Mrs. Dash Tomato, Basil & Garlic seasoning blend, to taste
  • 2 medium boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Tiger sauce, or other hot pepper sauce, or to taste, optional
  • 4 lettuce leaves, shredded (I used red leaf)
  • 4 thick slices red or yellow onion
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced
  • 1 ounce sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons salsa
  • 4 flour tortillas (white, wheat, spinach)

Instructions

  1. Use meat tenderizer or mallet to pound thicker breasts to an even thickness. Season generously with Mrs. Dash and grill until cooked through; set aside.
  2. Cook bacon to desired crispness; set aside.
  3. Combine mayonnaise with the Tiger sauce and divide evenly on the tortillas.
  4. Divide shredded lettuce, onion, tomato, cheese and salsa evenly on each tortilla, fold in the sides and roll up. Slice in half on the diagonal.
  5. Serve with a side of fresh fruit.

Notes:

Grilling time can range from 10 to 15 minutes, with one turn halfway, depending on size and thickness of breasts and whether you are direct grilling over fire, indirect grilling, or using an indoor grill or grill pan. Your best friend is a probe or internal temperature thermometer. A chicken breast is cooked through at about 165 degrees F at the thickest part of the breast, taking into account some residual carryover cooking, and when juices run clear when punctured with the tip of a knife. Let rest before slicing. Chicken breasts may also be baked, pan fried or air fried.


Mrs. Dash Tomato, Basil and Garlic Seasoning Blend is made up of a generous blend of multiple seasonings and is why I enjoy using it. If that's not something you keep on hand, it contains, in part, garlic, basil, parsley, chili peppers, paprika, bay leaf, marjoram, oregano, thyme, savory, cayenne pepper, coriander, cumin and rosemary so you can use a tiny bit of some or all of those elements for seasoning. You're already adding fresh tomato to the wrap.
