Chicken Salad Wrap with Creamy Italian Dressing & Havarti Cheese

This is a go-to quick and easy lunch I make often.  When I bake Chicken Breasts in my Dijon, Honey, Worcestershire Sauce and White Wine Vinegar Marinade, I ALWAYS throw a few extra in for wraps.

Chicken Salad Wrap

I used about 1/3 of a Baked Chicken Breast, Chopped for this Wrap.

Recipe for Chicken Salad Wrap with Creamy Italian Dressing and Havarti Cheese

1 Spinach Wrap Tortilla (I used Mission)
1/3 Cup chopped cooked chicken breast
2 Tbsp Cream Cheese
2 Green Onions, diced
Lettuce chopped, I used Iceberg you can use any on hand.  I used about 1 cup
2 Slices of Havarti Cheese from the Deli
2 Tbsp Marie’s Creamy Italian Dressing
Start out by laying down a sheet of wax paper and place the Spinach Wrap in top, this will make it so much easier to roll and keep those yummy ingredients inside.  First spread some cream cheese on the tortilla, then add the green onions, cheese, lettuce and chicken.  Top with the dressing, I used a small spatula.   Assemble as shown in the above pictures and roll it up!  I then cut it in half on a diagonal.  Then enjoy!

Ham, Salami and Three Cheese Wrap

Ham and Salami Wrap

There is nothing like a fresh tortilla wrap!  You know the kind, the tortilla is so fresh and soft and all the ingredients just come together.   Well this is one of them.  I started with a new package of Spinach Tortilla’s from Mission.  Spread some whipped cream cheese and lightly sprinkle some Italian Herbs over it.   Then dice a little green or red pepper and 1 medium or 2 small Roma Tomato’s.

The first steps

Now for the layering part.  Add a few leaves of leaf lettuce, 2 slices of Havarti and 2 slices of American cheese over that.  Place thin sliced Salami and roughly chopped slices of Deli Ham over the top.

Now you are ready for the finish!   On top of the Ham I used some Marie’s Creamy Italian Parmesan in the Vegetable section, which is my new favorite and it really seemed to work here.  Check this out!

Ready for our wrap

And then roll up tight in wax paper, this holds it together in case you have it really stuffed.  The slice it in half and share with someone special!  I did and he loved it.  I asked what he liked best and he said “it was so soft and fresh!”  Just what I wanted to hear.  He is not usually a cream cheese fan and did not even know it was there other than to say it was Delicious!!!

This Wrap is so easy and healthy and did I say good?  For a fast lunch that is filling (I was only able to eat half) and easy to take on the go!  I was craving a Club Wrap and I had saved some bacon from Sunday Morning’s Breakfast just for this occasion.   I love the flavored tortilla’s and grabbed Spinach this time.

5 slices of very thin Turkey
2 slices of Swiss Cheese
1-2 Table Spoons of Whipped Cream Cheese

Butter Lettuce Leaves
Sliced Cherry Tomato’s

First thing I do is prepare all ingredients to have ready to assemble.

Ingredients ready to go

I start by laying out my Tortilla, spread the cream cheese and sprinkle some Italian seasoning on top.  Then add the red pepper, spinach and butter lettuce leaves

We are Halfway there!

Then place slices of Swiss Cheese followed by the crumbled bacon, then the sliced Turkey.  Top it off with the slices of Tomato.

Chicken, Bacon, Parmesan Ranch Wrap

This Chicken, bacon, lettuce and Parmesan ranch Wrap was delicious!

Chicken, Bacon Wrap

Chicken, Bacon Wrap

This wrap was like eating a Salad topped with chicken and Ranch dressing along crunchy bacon bits!

I have been craving this for the whole week and it has been a crazy one, that I just had to make this the first thing this morning.  I purchased a Rotisserie Chicken but I would have easily cooked up a chicken breast and sliced it up in to strips or chunks.  The best dressing for this is “Marie’s Parmesan Ranch Dressing” found in the Produce section of the Market.  It is full of wonderful flavors and I use it often not only on Salads but in Wraps like this one or as a veggie dip.

Again I used the flavored Mission Brand Tortilla Warps as I did when I made my Turkey Club Wrap in and earlier post.

Marie's Dressing

1/4 cup shredded iceburg lettuce
2-3 table spoons Marie’s Parmesan Ranch Dressing
1 slice cooked crumbled bacon
