Some of my favorite things to make and eat at home are inspired by something that I ate in a restaurant somewhere. In this case, I cannot for the life of me remember the name of the place, but I remember that was in Kentville, Nova Scotia and they had a delicious sandwich wrap that I ate all the time. Amazing how one’s memory fades as they get older. Not sure how I feel about this phenomenon. Anyway, I just really liked this sandwich. I took the basic principles of it and made it my own. I make a garlicky marinade for some chicken and grill it. You can also use this method, both equally delicious. Add some veg and honey mustard and you are good to go. This can be made ahead of time and is perfect picnic food. I made this for the grown ups at Ava’s first birthday party and it was a hit. I have made it for years now and I love it just as much as I did in the unnamed cafe.
Marinade for chicken:
1/3 cup olive oil
3 cloves chopped garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (I used a Tuscan blend, anything would be good though)
3-4 chicken breasts
Let the chicken marinade for an hour or so. Grill or roast. Slice.
1 red pepper, diced
1 head Romaine shredded
6 pieces bacon, cooked and crumbled (I use good thick cut Applewood smoked bacon, but I am a bacon snob.)
Gulden’s Honey Mustard (obviously, you can use any kind of honey mustard that you like, but this one is my hands-down favorite.)
tortillas (I only had the little ones. My “wrap” was more of a taco. It all tastes the same, right?
Assemble your ingredients.
Slather your tortilla with honey mustard. The cafe used mayonnaise also, but, well, you know how I feel about mayo.
Add the rest of the ingredients and you are ready to eat. If you have a normal size tortilla, wrap it up. How hard was that? Easy summer dinner. Or lunch. Perfect for any occasion.
