Method of Preparation

  1. To prepare this dish first you need to prepare the chicken. So in a bowl add chicken and add your favourite taco seasoning and toss the chicken so that the seasoning coats on both sides.
  2.  Place a skillet on gas stove and heat on medium-high flame. Add oil, warm a little, and then add chicken to the oil. Cook the chicken for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until the chicken is properly cooked on both sides.
  3. After you are done with the chicken, remove it from heat and keep the skillet covered to allow chicken to continue cooking off heat until no longer pink remain in the middle. Cool the cooked chicken breasts then slice them into small cubes.
  4. Combine other vegetables such as spinach, tomatoes, green onions, red onion, red bell pepper, and grated sharp cheddar cheese in a bowl. Add cooked cube chicken to the bowl. Drizzle the veggies and chicken with the desired amount of Ranch dressing (or Greek yogurt based dressing), and toss well so that tye dressing coats the chicken and the veggies well.
  5. Place the tortillas on a flat pan. Add the chicken and spinach mixture evenly on top of tortilla. Roll up the tortillas. You can use tooth picks at two opposite ends of each tortilla to help it to hold together.
  6. Now you are ready with your dish. Now, you can serve hot and fresh.
  7. If you wish to have it later then you can store the mexi-wrap chicken in your refrigerator.
