Mediterranean-Inspired Grilled Chicken Wraps

The combination of sensitive teeth and braces has me eating a lot of pasta, soup and scrambled eggs. And I am getting sick of pasta, soup and scrambled eggs. Last Friday, I remembered that I had a really good grilled chicken wrap at Dairy Queen and it was pretty soft, so I got one for lunch. This one was not nearly as good as the first one and left me with a craving for a chicken wrap. So, tonight I created my own. DQ's has chicken, cheddar, Ranch and lettuce. I was going to copy theirs, without the lettuce, but went a different way instead. I ended up with a quick and easy meal.

The ingredients are based on serving one person; I made two wraps.

1 chicken breast
4 good-sized grape tomatoes
5-6 Kalamata olives.
Feta cheese
Ceasar dressing (I used Wish-Bone because it was on sale for 99 cents. Score!)
Flour tortillas (I used the smaller Diane's ones that come in the package of 20)

Season and grill chicken (I used my George Foreman grill. I love George).
Slice tomatoes and olives lengthwise. (My olive method is one for the dish, one for me)
Heat tortillas on the stove (either in a skillet or on the burner)

When the chicken is done, slice it lengthwise. Place chicken, tomatoes, olives, cheese and salad dressing on tortilla. Wrap it up and enjoy. I had one with the dressing and one without. I liked the one with dressing better.

Suggested side dishes: chilled cucumber salad, cottage cheese and or cantaloupe.

Yum! You're so creative. I have also created a couple of my own wraps, but neither sound as good as yours.

Speaking of eating, the family is back from Utah now, so we need to get together for dinner and games again soon!
