Is your family in the sandwich business? A soft tortilla wrap is just as easy a sandwich start as a slice of bread and a great way to pack a lunchbox. If you want to make it even easier, let your grocer do the heavy lifting and just toss a rotisserie chicken into your cart!
Yield: 4 to 6 large wraps
For the dressing
The zest and juice of 1 juicy lemon
2 tablespoons (30 mL) of olive oil
1 tablespoon (15 mL) of honey
1 tablespoon (15 mL) of your favourite mustard
1/4 teaspoon (1 mL) of salt
A few turns of your pepper grinder
For the wrap
1 rotisserie chicken, hot or chilled
2 avocados, peeled and cubed
1 pint (500 mL) of cherry tomatoes, halved
Leaves from 1 bunch of fresh basil
4 to 6 large soft tortillas
Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a medium bowl until smooth. Use your hands or a pair of forks to pull the chicken meat from the bones and shred it into bite-size pieces. Add to the bowl along with the avocados, tomatoes and basil. Gently toss the works together.
Ready the tortillas by briefly microwaving them until soft and pliable, 30 seconds or so. Arrange the tortillas on your work surface. Place a scoop of chicken salad just below the “equator” of each. Fold the bottom of the tortilla over the filling, fold in the sides, then finish rolling. Serve and share!

A bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup is one of the most comforting foods you can place on your table. It’s a great way to show off the hearty goodness of homemade chicken broth. It’s also a great way to show off your creativity by personalizing the flavour whichever way you want.
You found it! This is the single most requested recipe in my entire repertoire. Maybe its because the sweet, sour, spicy, salty and savoury flavours of Thailand are one of my favourite ways to fill a bowl. They’re seductively addictive, always well balanced and one of the world’s great cuisines. They’re also easy! This is a very simple dish to make.
