I love lunch. No really, I absolutely, positively looooovvvveee it.
But why wouldn’t I? I always have Dempster’s Tortillas on hand, and simply put, they make EVERYTHING taste delicious. Leftover curried chicken – wrap it up. Miscellaneous cold cuts – wrap it up. Last night’s meatloaf – wrap it up. Chickpea salad… trust me, you can wrap it up. The options for weekday lunches are endless! And often, with a little inspiration and a few staple ingredients, I can create a quick, simple meal that my family will love.
Today’s lunchtime inspiration was derived from leftover grilled chicken breast. Normally, I’d throw the chopped breast in a soup or salad, but today I decided on a Grilled Chicken Wrap with Lemon-Basil Aioli.
(Hint: It was phenomenal.)
2 Dempster’s 10-inch Tortillas
1 cup grilled chicken breast strips
1 cup baby romaine lettuce leaves
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
pinch red pepper flakes
1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
1 tbsp freshly squezed lemon juice
Mix the mayonnaise, basil and lemon juice in a small bowl. Spread generously over the tortilla. Layer the lettuce, chicken and cheese, and sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Wrap it up! Serves 2.
The wrap has a distinct Italian flavour and is chock-full of fresh, vibrant ingredients – but really, you can use whatever you have in your fridge or pantry. And that’s the beauty of Dempster’s Tortillas: you can wrap up ordinary ingredients and make them extraordinary. Dempster’s Tortillas have a Fresh Taste Guarantee, so you’ll always sink your teeth into the softest, freshest tasting wrap.

So just let me know when lunch time is at your house i’ll be there!!!! :)
Hahaha! 12:30pm is usually a good bet :)
I was going to skip lunch today, but now, I’m hungry! Thanks for the recipe!
You’re welcome Anne!
I love wraps, like you said you can wrap just about anything. I also like putting my wraps in my George Foreman grill sometimes just for a toasty crunch to my wrap and the wonderful melted cheese…mmmm
Mmm… the George Foreman grill is perfect for toasting wraps!
Wraps are fun. That looks really good.
Is it lunch time yet? I’m hungry already….this wrap looks soooooooooooo good! I have to make it for lunch today! Thanks for the recipe Lena.
You’re welcome Marissa – enjoy!

yummy, I have leftover chicken whoop! basil oh my fav herb.
Nice! Enjoy Chandra!
I would rather a wrap than 2 slices of bread for a sandwich (the bread is just so filling, but it does have it’s place – like French toast or Bread Pudding LOL)
I will sometimes even use the leftover soft tacos (from the kits) as wraps if I don’t have any tortillas around ;)
Oh yum – I never thought to use soft tacos, but it would be just as delicious!
I love these ideas. They give me ideas for packing my lunches (I work 12 hour shifts so good, satisfying meals are important)
A good, satisfying lunch is always a good thing. Enjoy!

Love wraps and love the sound of this recipe, definitely going on my to try list!!!
Perfect! Let me know what you think Judy!
I love wraps and didn’t even think to use left overs in them…this looks like a healthy meal to me. I love chicken and often find myself stuck for ideas.
Hope you try this Teresa – my husband said it’s the best wrap I’ve made! LOL
Dempsters wraps are so delicious! I love making ‘breakfast wraps’ by wrapping up scrambled eggs with salsa.
Mmm… sounds divine Victoria! It’s breakfast time for me, so now you’ve got me thinking!

You’re welcome Jo-Anne – enjoy!
