Chicken Avocado Summer Wrap

After eating dinner tonight, my husband and I were discussing what to call this wrap. He came up with "summery" then said "that's all I've got". At least I got one idea out of him. :)

No matter what you decide to call it, it doesn't change the deliciousness of it! We were going for something summery, filling, healthy, and yummy, all in one wrap. I think we got it.


grilled chicken
red onion
fresh spinach
couscous (or quinoa)
wrap or tortilla

We would advise you to serve your wrap with some sort of condiment, so it's not too dry. 
Some suggestions would be fresh lime juice, mustard, vinaigrette, ranch dressing, etc.

We came up with this wrap as a way to use up this leftover chicken in the fridge.
It was seasoned with lots of garlic, pepper and Cajun, as well as some other spices. 
We like our chicken fairly spicy, but season yours to your liking.

Slice it up into strips. You can have it cold, but we wanted it warm. I threw it in a hot saute pan and poured about a tablespoon of water onto the chicken, covered it quickly and left it on medium heat. 
It reheated the chicken perfectly while keeping it moist as the same time.

While the chicken was reheating, I made some couscous.
(If you've never made it before, just bring your water to a boil. Stir in the couscous. Cover and remove from heat. Let sit 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork. {I used 1/2 c. water and 1/3 c. couscous.} You can add fresh or dried herbs and seasonings, as well.)

Wash your fresh spinach.

Chop up your fresh veggies.
We used avocado, tomato, and red onion.

Select your wrap.
We saw these at the grocery store and decided to give them a try. 
They were pretty good, but I think a spinach or sun-dried tomato tortilla would be even better!

 Spread a bed of couscous on the center of your wrap.
Throw all your veggies and chicken on top of the couscous.

Roll it up.

Tony enjoyed a little Jack Daniel's mustard on his, whereas I liked mine with fresh squeezed lime juice. Experiment and find your favorite!
