Chicken, Veggie & Hummos Wrap with the Ferritto Simple Salad

13 07 2011

It’s hard to imagine having any leftover homemade hummos when it’s so delicious, but I actually did (recipe posted on 7/8). And that was the inspiration for this meal. It’s on the lighter side and super easy to make!

Chicken, Veggie & Hummos Wrap with the Ferritto Simple Salad

For the wrap (makes 2):

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • Chopped veggies, use whatever combination you have (I used eggplant, red onion, zucchini and squash – two heaping handfuls worth of all veggies combined)
  • Olive oil
  • Splash of lemon juice (I usually always have lemon but tonight I didn’t, so I used a splash of lemon balsamic vinegar instead)
  • Garlic, minced
  • Paprika
  • Fresh parsley, chopped
  • Kosher salt
  • Tortilla wraps (Make sure they are on the large side, I used sun-dried tomato and basil)
  • Feta cheese, crumbled
  • Left over hummos

Toss chicken with a little olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, paprika, parsley and salt and let marinate for a few minutes. In the meantime, chop your veggies and set aside. Saute chicken over medium-high heat for a few minutes – the goal is for the chicken not to pink on the outside. Next, add veggies to the pan and saute for a few more minutes until the chicken is nice and brown and the veggies start to get color.

To assemble – spread some hummos on the pita along with some crumbled feta. Next evenly divide your chicken/veggie mixture onto the 2 wraps. Top with some fresh chopped parsley and then roll up and cut in half. Serve along side the following salad (compliments of my family, which we basically have at every meal!).

For the Ferritto simple salad:

  • Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • Olive oil
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Garlic powder
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste

Drizzle the lettuce with olive oil – a couple turns of the bowl and then a few splashes of red wine vinegar (I have a very heavy hand with the vinegar, so much so that my family doesn’t let me dress the salad at family gatherings anymore, ha!). You’re just trying to get a nice coating on the lettuce – the combination of oil and vinegar is up to you and your taste buds! Next sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper – give it a taste and adjust the seasonings as necessary. That’s it! See, I told you it was simple!
