“Oops” Chicken Wraps

If you ask anyone that truly knows me, they’ll tell you that when it comes to cooking, I rarely follow a recipe. Recipes, to me, are more like inspirational reading. (Unless of course I’m baking. Let’s not get crazy here). 

Some of my very favorite “culinary creations” are dishes that I throw together when the pantry and fridge are looking stark. 

Grocery shopping is scheduled for tomorrow; so tonight was one of those nights. 

I am by all accounts, a novice chef. That being said- I couldn’t get enough of tonight’s accident- er, recipe. Obviously, I had to share (and posting it while it’s fresh in my mind means that MY family will get to enjoy it again- because I never remember how I make things, haha!). 

*note: because I was using the last of some ingredients and because I never measure things, the recipe will be approximate and random. Not sorry. This is how I roll* 

“Oops” Chicken Wraps 

Ingredients 

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken tenderloins
  • Low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/3 Onion
  • Garlic or garlic powder 
  • Red bell pepper, chopped
  • Herbs d’ Provence (1tbsp)
  • Salt + Pepper
  • 1 cup Brown Rice 
  • Muenster Cheese
  • Siracha
  • Ranch dressing (can substitute blue cheese dressing or plain yogurt)
  • Tortillas

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook chicken in 1/2 cup of chicken broth over medium-high heat. 
  2. Chop onion and add to chicken. 
  3. Season with salt, pepper, herbs d’provence, and garlic. 
  4. Add chopped red pepper and simmer until Chicken is cooked through. 
  5. Remove chicken and set aside. Add brown rice and 1 cup of chicken broth to same skillet. 
  6. Bring to boil and then lower heat. Cover and let simmer until rice has absorbed most of the liquid. 
  7. While the rice cooks, cube the slightly cooled chicken. 
  8. Add chicken and several “dashes” of Siracha to the rice. (Depending on how spicy you like it!)
  9. In another skillet or in the microwave, place a little cheese on tortillas and heat until tortilla is warm and the cheese is slightly melted
  10. Add chicken/rice mixture to tortillas, and finish with ranch (or which ever substitute you choose!) 

I honestly had no idea how it was going to taste. And then I had seconds. 

You’re welcome. 😉

    You had me at ranch dressing! Most of the time I’m throwing things together to and in the off chance it comes out good, I’m like crap, how did I do that? Life of a homemaker.

      I’m glad I ended up writing it down, because David has been raving about how good it was ever since! 🙂
