Simple Kitchen: Wraps of flavor
By Errin Stevenson
July 28, 2008 | Wraps are one of my summertime favorites.
They are quick, light and healthy. For dinner or for
lunch, wraps can serve a large or small group of people
and a dish that everyone will enjoy. Wraps come in many
flavors with different meats, vegetables and sauces.
You can also choose wheat tortillas and lean meats to
help achieve a perfect summer body.
The first wrap I am going to introduce is a Thai wrap.
It has a peanut flavor that is one of my favorites!
1/3 c. chopped green onions
2/3 c. matchstick carrots
2/3 c. coconut milk
1 T. soy sauce
1 T. rice vinegar
3 T. peanut butter
1 t. curry powder
1×2 t. red pepper
2 c. cooked chicken breasts
In a medium skillet over medium heat add 1 T. peanut
oil or olive oil. Then add carrots and green onions,
sautÚ 1 minute. Stir in milk, soy sauce, vinegar, peanut
butter, curry powder, and red pepper. Cook for 20-30
minutes over low-med heat. Stir occasionally. Then add
Remove from heat and warm tortillas in microwave.
Then place the Thai chicken on your tortillas and add
as much cabbage as you like. Enjoy! Serves 2-3 people.
The next recipe I am going to give you is a yummy summertime
pita. These are light, easy and have a different taste
that everyone will love. These are great for guests
and a simple summertime dinner.
Pita Pockets by Ashley Wood
At least 1 lb of chicken but do as much as you need
the marinade goes a long way. Cut chicken into chunks
and marinade for at least one hour (the longer the better)
1/4 C red wine vinegar
2 T. olive oil
1/4 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 C. Frozen apple juice concentrate
1/2 tsp salt
2 dashes oregano
1 dash of pepper
Once chicken has marinade drain marinade and cook
in frying pan.
Put in pita pockets with cucumbers and tomatoes and
1 C. Sour Cream
1/4 tsp dill
1/2 C. Mayo
1 tsp Beaumonde seasoning (this is kind of hard to find
but it is what makes the sauce good!)
I hope you enjoy!
