A Healthy, Delicious Choice For The Grill — Grilled Chicken + Basil Wraps!
I have a grill press at home I love to use for burgers, but I may have to convince Laura Daniels that we need to make these on her new grill!
Grilled Chicken & Garden Basil Wraps
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tbsp. canola oil
2 tbsp. Citrus & Basil Rub (or your favorite rub)
4 small vine-ripened tomatoes
1/4 tsp. each salt and coarsely ground black pepper
4 oz. whole milk mozzarella cheese
1 oz. Parmesan cheese
1 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves plus 6 large basil leaves, divided
2/3 cup light mayonnaise
1 garlic clove, peeled
3 (11-in.) flour tortillas
Sliced red onions (optional)
1- Brush chicken with oil and sprinkle with rub. Arrange chicken in a microwave safe container and cover with Parchment Paper. Microwave on HIGH 5-6 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165ºF (74ºC). Transfer chicken from container to clean Cutting Board and let cool 5 minutes. Dice chicken into 1/2-in. (1-cm) pieces.
2- While chicken cools, slice tomatoes and then blot excess moisture from tomatoes with paper towels. Sprinkle tomato slices with salt and black pepper; set aside. Grate mozzarella cheese; set aside. Grate Parmesan cheese. Combine 1 cup of the basil, mayonnaise and garlic in a food processor; cover and pump handle until basil is finely chopped. Combine basil mixture, Parmesan cheese and chicken in a bowl and stir until chicken is coated.
3- To assemble wraps, place three tomato slices widthwise over center of one tortilla, overlapping as necessary. Top with one-third of the chicken mixture; two basil leaves; three additional tomato slices; red onions (if desired); and one-third of the mozzarella cheese. Fold in sides of tortilla and roll up tightly burrito style. Repeat two times for a total of three wraps.
4- Preheat grill pan and grill press over medium-low heat 5 minutes. Place wraps in pan; top with Grill Press and cook 3-4 minutes per side or until grill marks appear. Remove wraps from pan; cut in half on a bias and serve immediately
**Hint- Warming the tortillas will make them easier to roll up. To warm tortillas, place them between paper towels and microwave on HIGH 30–45 seconds or until warm.**
