We've been enjoying simple buttered Asparagus at dinner for over week now, so when I found another big bunch of it at the market on Saturday I decided to dress it up a little. These Chicken Asparagus Wraps, with a creamy basil sauce, make a perfect quick lunch or dinner. To make it even easier, use rotisserie or canned chicken and you can have a hearty, fresh Spring meal in about 15 minutes. Oh, how I love Spring produce!
Chicken Asparagus Wraps with Basil Cream Sauce
IngredientsFor the Sauce:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup diced green onion
1/2 teaspoon dry basil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
For the Wraps:
4 whole grain tortillas
12 ounces asparagus, washed and trimmed
2 cups cooked, chopped chicken (rotisserie or canned works well)
1/2 cup diced cherry tomatoes
1 cup baby spinach (optional)
Directions:In a small bowl, combine all of the sauce ingredients and mix well. Chill until ready for use.
In a medium skillet, bring 1/2 cup water to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and add the asparagus. Cook covered for approximately 4 minutes or until asparagus is tender. Drain asparagus.
To assemble wraps, spoon 1/4 cup sauce into center of each tortilla. Divide asparagus evenly between the four tortillas and layer over sauce followed by 1/2 cup chicken, 1 1/2 tablespoons tomatoes, and 1/4 cup baby spinach (if using) on each tortilla. Roll up the tortillas into wraps and enjoy immediately! Makes 4 wraps.
