Take-out Tuesday, Ranch Chicken Wrap with Asparagus & Bacon

 

In the world of flowers

daffodils signal the arrival of Spring in the US

 

 

 

 

In the world of vegetables,

low prices and abundant fresh asparagus

are other sure signs of Spring

 

 

 

 

I am always on the look out for recipes that can be made ahead of time, when I have a lot of energy, because by 5 pm I am ready to relax and the last place I want to be is in the kitchen

 

 

 

 

This is a perfect weeknight or weekend, easy, make ahead meal

it’s easy clean up too, everything is prepped in one pan,

baked on foil that can be tossed away

 

 

 

 

Chicken, bacon and asparagus in a creamy ranch sauce

with melted cheese in a crispy hot tortilla

Yes please!

 

 

 

 

Start with the bacon,

it can cook while you prep the other ingredients

 

 

 

 

Saute chicken in a little leftover bacon grease

2-3 minutes per side

or you can skip this step if using rotisserie chicken

 

 

 

 

Remove chicken to safe {plastic} cutting board and shred/chop

 

 

 

 

Add asparagus and white part of onions to skillet for a quick saute

Chicken and vegetables will finish cooking when wrap is baked

 

 

 

 

Return chicken and bacon to skillet with vegetables and season with Ranch mix

 

 

 

Next stir in cream cheese and it will quickly start melting in the warm pan

 

 

 

 

Lay out tortillas and divide mixture between them,

placing filling down the center

 

 

 

Top with cheese

 

 

 

Fold up bottom edge and fold sides in and over filling

I used a dab of egg wash on the tortilla edges to help hold them together

but mine were so full they needed to be

Secured with short skewers or toothpicks

 

 

 

 

Place on a foil lined baking pan that has been sprayed with olive oil spray

Then spray the tops of wraps

The spray will cause the tortillas to become golden and crisp

 

 

 

 

I used medium size tortillas, because that’s what I had on hand, but large tortillas would be easier to work with and you could enclose the filling more completely

 

 

Either way it’s an easy 1 dish satisfying meal!

 

 

Ranch Chicken Wrap with Asparagus & Bacon

  • Servings: varied
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

this will make 4 wraps, increase ingredients to make more

1/2 lb. boneless chicken breasts cut into strips**

8 asparagus spears

4 strips of bacon

4 medium flour tortillas

2 green onions, chopped, and reserve green top pieces for garnish

1-2 Tablespoons dry Ranch Dressing Mix

salt & pepper

olive oil spray

2 oz grated cheese {I used Triple Cheddar Creamy Melt}

1 egg, beaten

toothpicks or short skewers

 

Cook bacon in skillet on medium heat until crispy, remove to paper towels to drain.  Reserve 1 Tablespoon bacon grease* in skillet.  Add chicken and saute, 2-3 minutes per side.  Season with salt and pepper.  Remove to cutting board.  Saute asparagus pieces and white onion pieces 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they begin to soften.  Remove skillet from heat.

Cut chicken and bacon into small pieces and combine with asparagus in skillet.  Sprinkle with Ranch Dressing mix. Add cream cheese, and as it warms and melts, stir to combine into a creamy filling.

Lay out tortillas and divide filling among them, placing it down the center of each tortilla. Sprinkle with cheese. brush egg over tortilla side edges. Fold bottom edge over filling and then fold over each side, and secure with skewers.

Place wraps on an olive oil sprayed foil lined baking pan.  Lightly spray top of tortilla wraps with olive oil spray.  Wraps can be refrigerated at this point if desired.  Bring to room temperature before cooking, or cover loosely with foil and bake a few minutes longer.

Bake at 400 for 15 minutes, or until tortillas are golden and filling is hot.  Garnish with reserved green onion tops.

*use oil or a combo of oil and butter if preferred

**sub cooked or rotisserie chicken

 

 

 

 

It’s crunchy, cheesy, and full of flavor!

 

 

 

Enjoy!

    This looks great–with one exception. No offense, but I am not an asparagus fan–though my family loves it. I plan to try subbing broccoli in this for me at least and see what happens. No matter what, you gave me a great idea for something new in our spring menu. But truly you had me at “ready to relax.”
