Betty B’s Fresh Wrap (a la McDonalds)

It has happened to all of us:  you are driving on a highway and have to get something to each.  Your choices are leaving the highway and taking goodness know how long to find a restaurant or stop at Mickey D‘s.  We were faced with that choice recently and didn’t want to add an hour or more to our journey so we opted for McDonalds thinking a small hamburger would tide us over.  We were surprised to find a new option on the menu: a Fresh Wrap.  We ordered it and were even more surprised to find it was quite good.  Of course, immodestly,  I felt I could made a better version at home.  Freshly grilled chicken and some slices of ripe avocado make this a lunch I would happily serve to guests. 

1 thin chicken cutlet, lightly rubbed with olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper
1 cup lettuce, finely shredded
1 medium tomato, chopped
¼ cup sharp cheddar, shredded
4 slices crisp bacon
8 slices avocado
2 flour tortillas


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
Pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper
½ teaspoon Dijon mustard

Grill the chicken breast until done.  Lightly grill tortillas to soften. Slice chicken into thin strips.

Mix lettuce and tomato with dressing.

Place ½ of lettuce and tomato on each tortilla.  Top with ½ each of cheese, bacon, avocado and chicken.  Roll up tightly and enjoy!
