Chicken Lavash Wrap


This one is another quick meal when you have no time. I stopped by whole paycheck...er...I mean Whole Foods and picked up a couple items. A pack of lavash wraps, fresh spinach from the salad bar as well as some fresh mushroom and some roasted chicken. This is perfect for using leftover chicken, if you have. Also a nice small block of havarti cheese. Yum. I had some pineapple tidbits left in the fridge, so I figured I'd use that in my ingredients for this as well.

Wraps a relatively easy to put together. You basically just pile everything and wrap it up like you would a burrito. I decided to used ol' Georgie to heat the wrap as well as press it a little. It melts the cheese, cooks up the spinach and mushrooms a bit. Mmmm...just look at the chicken and cheese wanting to bust out of the wrap. The pineapple brings a nice balance, too.

Makes 2 wraps



Chicken Lavash Wrap

1 large cooked chicken breast or 1 large cooked thighs
2 lavash wraps
2 c fresh spinach
1/2 c pineapple chucks or tidbits
1/3 sliced mushrooms
few slices of havarti cheese

Lay a lavash wrap on a flat surface. Layer the spinach, mushroom, chicken, pineapple and cheese. Wrap it up like a burrito.

Heat your panini press and place the wrap seam side down. Heat both side for roughly 5 minutes until warm enough.

To heat over a skillet, Place the wrap seam side down first. Place a plate or something flat over the wrap and place some weight on top to give it some pressure. A 12oz canned good would work. Heat for 5 minutes on medium heat. Flip the other side and do the same.

There is something about lavash that sets it apart from other flatbreads and wraps - I love it's chewy texture, but it's even better when it's grilled like this! Love your filling choices, especially the gooey, melted cheese . . .

Sounds like a delicious combination Jenn!!

'Whole paycheck' - LOL! I love Whole Foods but I try to reserve going there for specialty ingredients so I don't blow my grocery budget. A couple weeks ago I broke the bank buying some white truffle oil from there. Your lavash wrap looks delicious, good ol' Georgie delivering some great grill marks. And I must get my hands on some Havarti soon, I still don't know how it tastes, but the name always reminds me of a cheese commercial I saw when I was a kid - the jingle was sung in an opera fashion and ended with "and HAVAAAAAAARTI! and would crack me up (now that I think of it, was probably a Canadian commercial that no one else saw)
