Cajun Chicken Wrap

To commemorate the Kitchen being open for a year ( I know, time flies!) I wanted to make something special.  We were having a little celebration, so wanted to make sure that whatever I cooked wouldn’t be too laborious so that I could actually have the time to sit down and reflect on the whirlwind that has been the last year.

What I did end up with, was something that Mama Lulabella claimed was ‘The best thing you have ever cooked’  So I hope you like my twist on the humble chicken wrap! There is something about encasing the filling in the wrap then grilling it that gives it something magical. 

Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: 20 Minutes
Serves 4
You Will Need:

4  Medium Chicken Breasts
Cajun Seasoning – recipe below (or use shop bought)
4 Tortilla Wraps – I use Discovery Large Wraps (New FIND!)
4 Slices of Cheese – (I used Leerdammer Lighter Slices – they melt and are nice and creamy!)
4 TBSP Extra Light Mayo
Shredded Lettuce, Sliced Tomato and sliced red onion to serve
Frylight/Calorie Controlled Oil Spray
For the Cajun Seasoning: (makes 4 TBSP worth)
1/2 Tsp Salt
2 Tsp Granulated Garlic/Garlic Powder
2 Tsp Paprika
1/4 Tsp Black Pepper
1 Tsp Granulate Onion/Onion Powder
1/2 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
1/2 Tsp Dried Oregano
(Mix in a bowl or in a spice jar)


Heat up your Panini/ George Forman Grill

Place the Chicken breasts onto a plate – if they are thick then butterfly them so that they will cook quicker

Spray one side with oil and sprinkle half of the Cajun spice onto the breasts

Heat up a griddle pan and place the chicken seasoned side down into the pan.

Spray the other side of the chicken with oil and sprinkle the remaining chicken over ready to turn over

Cook for 4-5 minutes each side until cooked through.

Warm your tortillas in the microwave for 10 seconds to make them more pliable

Start to build!  Spread the Mayo over the base, add the lettuce, tomato onions and then top with a slice of cheese

Top with the chicken and wrap it up – we want it all wrapped up so that nothing can fall out.

Place the wraps on the Panini/George Forman with the seam side facing upwards – this will make sure that none of the goodness gets out and will make a fixed seam so that everything will stay in when taken off!

Heat for 3-4 minutes until the wrap gets crispy

Serve with Potato wedges – salad – or simply just tuck in!
