We’ve been enjoying some filling dinners lately utilizing the satiating properties of protein, fat, and complex carbohydrates. These chicken parmesan wraps are an easy dinner idea that can be served with any of your favorite side dishes. If you really want to cut the carbs here, you can wrap the mixture in butter lettuce instead of using the low-carb or whole wheat wraps.
Grilling the wraps on a cast iron grill pan (I have this one and love it) or just toasting them in a nonstick skillet adds some extra warmth and crunch to the outside.
We served this alongside a pan of broccoli florets roasted with olive oil, salt, and pepper. And heck, I make it easy on myself and buy the big bags of frozen broccoli and roast them straight from the freezer! Preheat your oven to 425F, drizzle the frozen broccoli with oil and top with salt, and pepper, and roast for about 30 minutes. Done. Enjoy!
|Low Carb Chicken Parmesan Wraps|| |
- 1 cup of marinara sauce (see notes)
- 1½ tsp Italian seasoning
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- ¼ cup fresh basil, finely chopped OR 2 TBS dried basil
- 3 cups of cooked, shredded chicken breasts
- 4 Flatout Flatbreads, original or Italian herb flavor (see notes) OR butter lettuce for lower carb
- 1 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
- Additional warmed sauce for dipping - optional
- In a saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the marinara sauce, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and basil. Stir to combine and cook until heated through.
- Add the chicken and stir. Taste and adjust seasonings and allow to cook until chicken is warmed.
- Heat a grill pan or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. (if using butter lettuce, you will skip the grilling steps)
- Place 2 tablespoons of cheese down the center of a flatbread, top with ¼ of the chicken mixture and top with an additional 2 tablespoons of cheese.
- Fold the short ends of the flatbread toward the center and then fold the longer sides together, creating a closed wrap.
- Spray the heated grill pan or skillet with nonstick cooking spray and Place the wrap onto the pan. Grill until toasted on one side, and then flip and repeat on the other side. Repeat the process with the remaining wraps (you may be able to grill multiple wraps at once depending on the size of your pan)
- Serve with additional warmed sauce, if desired.
- If you can't find Flatout bread, you can use any whole wheat/high fiber or low carb wrap.
