Taco Pulled Chicken Wraps with Homemade Salsa

20190112_194157

Delicious little Saturday night dish (or any night for that matter)  I also used corn tortillas and made my own salsa to keep the fat and calories lower. I am on a mission this year to eat a little healthier and try new ideas and flavours. This is packed with flavour and filling too.

You could of course use Tacos instead of wraps.

 

Makes enough for about 6 wraps

For the chicken:-

2 large chicken breasts

1 tin chopped tomatoes

2 tbsp Taco Seasoning (see below)

For the Salsa:-

2 tomatoes – chopped

1 onion – chopped

1 lime juice of

2 tsp dried coriander

1 tsp sea salt

*

Sour Cream to taste

Taco Seasoning:-

1 tbsp chilli powder

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp paprika

1 tbsp cumin

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp black pepper

Add all above to a little jar and mix. Store in cupboard.

  1. Place a little oil in a pan on medium heat
  2. Coat the chicken with the Taco Seasoning about 1 large tbsp per breast and gently colour the chicken in the pan.
  3. Add in the tin tomatoes to the pan with the chicken, cover and slow cook on a low heat for about 4 hours.
  4. Meanwhile make the salsa by adding the chopped tomatoes, chopped onion, salt, coriander and lime juice in a bowl and mix together. Store in fridge until needed.    20190112_161740
  5. About 1/2 hour before about to serve, take 2 forks and shred the chicken in the pan. Continue to cook uncovered for about 1/2 hour, this helps thicken the sauce.              20190112_181543
  6. Warm up your tortillas as per instructions on packet, place on a plate.
  7. Spread a thin layer of sour cream, place some shredded chicken on top, then some tomato salsa then another little dollop of sour cream, wrap and devour! Yummy!

You could also add in a little avocado or some grated cheese.

20160912_193046

Another one of my quick put together meals tonight, still had some chicken leftover and bagels from weekend so decided to give the pulled chicken idea a go. This was really tasty also low in fat and calories as I used the skinny bagels at 120 calories. A real Asian infused Spice dish with the fresh coriander makes a perfect Monday night dish!

Serves 2 or makes 4 bagels.

2 small chicken breasts (I cut into thick strips so that it would cook quicker)

2 tbsp of extra light philadelphia (spread for bagels)

1 Beef tomato – chopped into small chunks

1 onion – chopped into small chunks

1 red pepper – chopped into small chunks

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp ginger

1 tsp Gram Masala

1 tsp chilli flakes

Salt & pepper to taste

100g Creme Fraiche

300ml Vegetable stock

1 tbsp tomato puree

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp caster sugar

1 tbsp chopped coriander

 

  1. Firstly heat the olive oil in a shallow pan.
  2. Add in the chopped onion, red pepper, garlic and ginger cook on medium heat until onion and peppers are softened.                                                                                                             20160912_173959

  4. Pour in the chopped tomatoes and vegetable stock, bring to the boil then reduce to a low simmer.
  5. Place the chicken into the sauce, cover the pan with a lid and simmer for approx 1 hour. 20160912_184732
