« Part 27: Garden Fou Young Part 28 of Harvest Time...Recipes series no next part

We love these any time of year but they are best in the summer with garden fresh veggies.

(Makes 4 large wraps – 8 halves as pictured above)

For the dough:

2 cups of unbleached flour
2 tbs olive oil
enough water to make a soft dough

Kneed together until rubbery and firm, cut into 4 pieces and let sit for 10 minutes until softened.

Take each ball and stretch it out a little. Butter each piece of dough with 1/2 tsp of butter and fold it into a ball incorporating the butter.

Let the dough sit to soften for 20 minutes while you prepare the following:

6 cups of shredded fresh veggies- use your favorite, I like mixed lettuce, peppers, onions, carrots & tomatoes.

Cook 1 thinly sliced chicken breast in a frying pan, lower the heat and add 4 tbs of ketchup, 1 tbs of hot sauce, 1 tsp honey and 1 large clove of minced garlic. Let simmer for 5 minutes.

In a large 14” skillet, add 1/2tsp olive oil, warm the oil.

Roll out the 4 balls of dough as thin as possible onto a floured surface.

Lightly fry each piece of dough in the skillet until golden dots form, then tun them over. About 1 minute 30 seconds each side.

Assemble the wraps by placing a scoop of the chicken and sauce in the center of each (feel free to add cream cheese) and 1.5 cups of veggies in each. Add a dash of salt and cracked pepper and roll tightly.

These are great for lunch, dinner, snacks or a picnic.

What is the yellow piece in the plate? Looks like papad, Indian crispy wafer.

yummie indeed … we too eat wraps … I do a “lazy version” ... buy the wraps, but add cooked hamburger, steak (or any meat you want—chicken would be good), lots and lots of cut up raw veggies, top with some Ranch Dressing … fold it all up and EAT!!

Looks good. Even better when one can make one’s own wraps.

Thanks, I don’t like the tough store bought ones and it’s really not all that hard to make big soft wraps with a nice crispy exterior…I want another one now :)

Looks yummy… you don’t need to add any yeast or baking powder to the dough?

Don’t know much about making bread…. i guess since it’s a “flatbread” you dont want it to rise… lol

Good choice on a nice healthy meal
