Grilled Chicken & Avocado Wrapini

Grilled Chicken & Avocado Wrapini

My boss treated us to lunch a few weeks ago at a local deli, where I chose an item on their menu that I’d never seen before…a wrapini!  It’s a wrap, but grilled on a panini press.  Brilliant!  It tasted just as brilliant, as well.  I had to recreate this at home!

The other day I got my chance.  We had leftover wheat tortillas from a weekend prep of making Taquitos.  We also had some chicken, cherry tomatoes, cheese and avocado.  Immediately my mind fell to that wrapini I had at the deli.  Although the one I ordered had chicken, bacon, ranch, tomatoes (the works!), I knew I could create a tasty and healthier version with these ingredients I had on hand.

Ben grilled up the chicken for me as I sliced the tomatoes and avocado, and heated the panini press.  Once the chicken was done, I just sliced it up, threw it onto the tortilla with the rest of the ingredients and grilled it.  Oh.my.goodness.  It was better than I had at the deli, and better than I could’ve ever imagined!  Originally, I meant to add a sauce of some sort and forgot.  But, I’m glad I forgot because it surprisingly was extremely flavorful without it!  I couldn’t stop eating my wrapini to take a photo, so I made one extra.  Darn!  I had to eat that one, too! 🙂
