Garlic Bacon Chicken Wraps

chicken wrap recipeSome 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.

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?

    I have all the ingredients except for the sauce. I love mayo, but I think Ranch dressing would be better with this dish than mayo. Wow. I’m about to make some flour tortillas, so I’ll reserve some for this dish. Thanks for sharing this, Bree!

      Ranch would be really good on it. Yum.

    Bree, what a great meal! My daughter loves being able to assemble her dinner, and this was right up her alley. I didn’t have any lettuce, so I subbed in cabbage (leftovers from fish tacos) and it was still awesome. Thanks for the recipe!

    Hi we are also from the valley in Nova Scotia. Would this restaurant happen to be Designer Cafe or Central Cafe? We have been to both and they have delicious wraps! Loved your recipe 🙂

    I made this for my god family and boyfriend a few nights ago. They loved it so much. Just thought you should know. Thank you for this wonderful easy recipe.

    What a small, small, small world! I came upon your website when looking for a recipe for Diplomat Cream. I have a enjoyed browsing your recipes. The small world part comes in because I am very possibly the person that made this wrap for you at Central Cafe in Kentville, Nova Scotia. I used to work there a number of years ago and I know this one very well. Everybody liked it. What an interesting coincidence to find it on your blog. I no longer live there and the cafe has closed. Seeing this recipe posted was a nice reminder.

      It is such a small world! I’m so sorry that the cafe closed, we went there all the time!
