Recipe Notes

  • No oranges? Use halved grapes or diced apples.
  • Instead of chicken, try using 1 cup cooked/drained garbanzo beans, or 1 cup of small tofu cubes.

Ingredients

1 cup cooked, diced chicken
½ cup finely chopped celery
⅔ cup canned, drained mandarin oranges
¼ cup minced onion (green, red, or yellow)
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon soy sauce
½ teaspoon garlic powder or 2 cloves garlic
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 large whole wheat tortilla
4 medium lettuce leaves, washed and patted dry

Instructions

  1. In medium bowl, mix chicken, celery, oranges, and onions.
  2. Add mayonnaise, soy sauce, garlic, and pepper. Mix gently until chicken mixture is coated.
  3. Lay tortilla on clean cutting board or large plate. With a knife or clean scissors, cut tortilla into four quarters.
  4. Place 1 lettuce leaf on each tortilla quarter, trimming leaf so it doesn’t hang over edge of tortilla.
  5. Place 1/4 of chicken mixture in the middle of each lettuce leaf.
  6. Roll tortillas up into a cone, with the two straight edges coming together and the curved edge creating the opening of the cone. Eat like a sandwich!
  7. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Notes

  • No oranges? Use halved grapes or diced apples.
  • Instead of chicken, try using 1 cup cooked/drained garbanzo beans, or 1 cup of small tofu cubes.

Comment

I thought the garlic/soy/mayo spread would be too *strong* for a classroom of kids, but they all liked it! (Well, most of them did!).  We used the green, spinach tortillas for a St Patrick's Day treat.  Very festive and healthy too.

I made this recipe for my 3rd graders, and subbed garbanzo beans for the chicken. I thought it would be too strong of a flavor for kids, but they liked it. One problem with the beans is that they rolled out too much, so I'd suggest using larger tortillas and possibly mashing the beans a bit, but the recipe was great. I've made it at home a few times, and my family enjoys it.

Substituted orange pieces for mandarins and spinach for lettuce. Made 2 full size wraps. Tasty!

This is one of my family's favorites recipes! It's so tasty and versatile - we love it with chicken and garbanzo beans. We often use spinach instead of lettuce. Recently, we did not have tortillas and so made it as a salad - it was great!
