Description

These Blackberry Balsamic Chicken wraps are bursting with flavor. These wraps have slices of balsamic marinated chicken, a homemade roasted blackberry sauce, sliced avocado, fresh arugula and crumbled goat cheese. It’s perfect for lunch on-the-go.


Ingredients

  • 4 whole wheat tortillas

For the chicken

  • 1 pound thinly sliced chicken breast
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the blackberry sauce

Optional additional

  • Arugula or other type of lettuce
  • Avocado
  • Goat cheese

Instructions

  1. For the chicken: Prepare a quick marinade by combing the chicken with the balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper and marinate in a Ziploc bag or bowl for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Grill the chicken for approximately 5-8 minutes per side depending on thickness, grill until the chicken is cooked all the way through. All the chicken to cool and then slice into thin strips.
  3. For the blackberry sauce: Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and roast the blackberries for 15-18 minutes until the berries expel their juices. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  4. In a food processor, combine the berries with honey and a squeeze of lemon juice and blend until smooth. If you’d prefer to strain the seeds, you can do so through a fine sieve.  Keep covered in refrigerator.
  5. To prepare the wraps: Layer the chicken together with your arugula and avocado and drizzle with the prepared blackberry sauce, finish off with a sprinkle of goat cheese. Keep refrigerated before serving.

Notes

You can get four chicken wraps from about 1 pound of chicken, and so you’ll have some leftover blackberry sauce, but it’s perfect to spread on toast, enjoy with some brie cheese and crackers or mix it into a blackberry cocktail
