I love the new PC fresh herbs at my local grocery store! They come all ready to use in these neat little plastic boxes and at this time of the year when I don’t have my back-yard herb garden to “snip” from, this is the next best thing.
I fell in love with basil this summer when our neighbour brought us a huge bag of it, fresh from her garden. There isn’t any doubt that fresh herbs are by far the best way to add flavour to your food, and already I am looking forward to the spring so I can plant a whole bunch of it in my own herb garden. But spring is a ways away, so until then I’ll just keep buying the PC herbs.
This is a light and summery recipe for delicious wraps with a light basil flavour.It may not be summer outside, but we can still eat as though it is, inside!
Chicken Wraps with Basil Mayonnaise
1/3 cup light mayonnaise
1 TBSP fresh basil, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 large spinach or basil flavour wraps
12 slices cooked chicken breast
1 red pepper, sliced into strips
1/4 red onion, sliced
2 cups leaf lettuce, torn
Combine mayo, basil and garlic in a small bowl, and stir well. Lay wraps flat and top each one with the mayo topping, dividing between the 4 wraps, and spreading over each. Next, top each wrap with 3 slices chicken, red pepper strips, onion and lettuce. Roll up into log shapes, and secure with a tooth-pick.
