Ingredients

  • 4 Flour Tortillas (we love TortillaLand unbaked tortillas)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise divided (we love Best Foods/Hellmans)
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, separated Note 1
  • 4 large pieces leaf lettuce
  • 2 Roma tomatoes
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1 cup Leftover shredded or chopped rotisserie chicken, or leftover grilled chicken
  • 1/3 cup Italian dressing Note 2
  • Fine sea salt and freshly cracked pepper
  • 1/2 cup croutons Note 3
  • 10 leaves fresh basil, optional

Instructions

  • TORTILLAS: Prepare the tortillas according to package directions. (We use unbaked tortillas, which need to be warmed through in a skillet for about a minute.) Let cool slightly. If using already-baked tortillas, warm under a damp paper towel in the microwave for 10 seconds.
  • MAYO-PARM SPREAD: Using a table knife, spread the mayo evenly among all the tortillas -- 2 tablespoons per tortilla. Top each tortilla with about 2 tablespoons freshly/finely grated Parmesan cheese. Use a microplane or the small sides of a cheese grater to grate the cheese.
  • VEGGIES: Next, lay down 1 large lettuce leaf (or 2 smaller ones) on each tortilla. Thinly slice the tomatoes and divide evenly among the 4 tortillas. Remove the pit and skin of the avocado, thinly slice, and add an even amount of slices to the tortillas. Top the tortillas evenly with the prepared chicken -- as much as you'd like; we add about 1/4 cup per tortilla.
  • FINISHING: Drizzle the Italian dressing evenly on each tortilla on top of the chicken -- again to personal preference. If desired, add a tiny pinch of salt and pepper. Slightly crush the croutons and divide them evenly among the 4 tortillas. Optional: Ribbon the basil and divide evenly among the tortillas.
  • ENJOY: Roll up tightly and enjoy immediately.

Notes

Note 1: Parmesan: Grate a block of Parmesan cheese on the small holes of the cheese grater or on a microplane for a super fine, nice texture. Measure loosely. I don't recommend jarred or canned Parmesan cheese -- the flavor will be overpowering and too salty on these wraps.
Note 2: Dressing: We like Olive Garden's Signature Italian Dressing best in these wraps. They also sell a lite version that will work here. If you aren't excited about a store-bought dressing, we share a great homemade dressing on this Olive Garden salad that can be used on these wraps.
Note 3: Croutons: We love the Olive Garden Garlic & Romano croutons as a store-bought option.
