Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb chicken breast boneless, skinless
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro chopped
  • 1 jalapeno cored, seeded, and sliced
  • 1 tsp peppercorns whole
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder

Yogurt dressing

Other

  • 1 cup spinach fresh
  • 6 tortilla shells
  • 1/3 cup cashews coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion diced
  • 2 Roma tomatoes seeded, cored, diced

Instructions

  1. In a skillet, place chicken, salt, cilantro, jalapeno, peppercorns, bay leaf, and curry powder. Add 1 cup of water, and cover. Cook for about 15-20 minutes, or until internal temperature is 165'F.



  2. While the chicken cooks, mix yogurt, curry, allspice, and salt in a bowl. Place in the refrigerator until ready to use. 
  3. Once the chicken is cooked, remove from heat and place on a cutting board and allow it to come to room temperature. Discard liquid and solids.

    Place in the refrigerator and cool completely. 

  4. When the chicken is cold, cut into small pieces and place in a bowl. Slowly mix in the yogurt sauce and coat evenly. 

  5. Next, mix in the diced onions, and tomatoes.

To assemble the wraps

  1. Place a few spinach leaves on top of the tortilla shell.

    Evenly distribute the chicken salad on top of the spinach, then sprinkle with the chopped cashews.


  2. Fold in the two sides so they overlap, then roll from the bottom up.

  3. Slice each wrap diagonally.
