Garden Fresh BBQ Chicken Wrap


Salad season is in full swing!  A few weeks ago I came across this recipe for Smoked Turkey Cobb Wrap.  After wiping the drool off my computer screen, I had a light bulb moment.  Turn your favorite salad into a wrap!  My mind immediately raced to this beloved BBQ Chicken Salad recipe.  I knew it would be the perfect candidate for the transformation.  It's filling, full of flavor and packed with garden fresh goodness.  Perfect for a quick lunch or light summer dinner.  This one will definitely be put on repeat along with the Smoked Turkey Cobb Wrap!

For the chicken:
2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp salt
dash of cayenne pepper
1 cup barbecue sauce

Mix olive oil and seasonings in a large ziploc bag. Add raw chicken and coat evenly. Heat skillet over medium-high heat and coat with cooking spray. Place chicken breasts in skillet and cook for 7 minutes. Turn chicken and cook an additional 7 minutes, or until cooked through. Pour half of BBQ sauce over chicken. Turn chicken over, and pour remaining sauce over the other side. Cook 2-3 minutes more while flipping the chicken and basting with additional sauce if necessary. Remove chicken to cutting board and shred into large chunks then set aside to cool.

For the Wrap:
6 tortilla wraps
mixed salad greens
cilantro, chopped
corn
black beans
Tomatoes, sliced
Avocado, sliced
Cooked BBQ chicken (see above), sliced
BBQ sauce
Ranch dressing

Lay out wrap.  Put 1-2 large handfuls of salad greens on the wrap.  Top each serving with corn, black beans, tomatoes, avocado, BBQ chicken, cheese and tortilla strips.  Drizzle with ranch dressing and BBQ sauce.  Roll up and secure with a toothpick.  Repeat for each wrap.
