|Pair these tasty wraps with some fresh fruit salad for a quick and easy meal.|
I found this recipe online years ago. The original called for shredded chicken, a perfect (and probably healthier) substitute for the turkey, but it's so easy to pick up a container of thin-sliced turkey at the grocery store, that's what I usually do, as you can see in the pictures. If you prefer using chicken, just grill a couple of extra boneless chicken breasts next time you cook out, then shred and freeze them for a quick and easy meal the following week.
Use the food processor to shred the carrots; it takes just seconds. These days, though, you can always pick up a package of fresh, shredded carrots in the produce section of your local grocery store. Speaking from a frugal frame of mind, though, just pull out that food processor and use it. You'll save money that way for sure.
As for the chutney, I always keep a bottle of Major Grey's on hand since it goes so well with dishes we love, such as Turkey Curry in a Hurry. I keep an extra bottle in the pantry, too, since our usual grocery store doesn't carry it. If you can't find it at your store, it's easy enough to order it online.
Step-by-step photos are below. Here's the recipe:
|Colorful ingredients for turkey wraps|
with chutney and carrots,
all laid out, ready to put together.
2 tablespoons chutney (Use Major Grey Mango Chutney or your favorite.)
1/4 cup mayonnaise (Low-fat mayo is fine.)
4 medium-sized tortillas (Multi-grain tortillas taste great with this.)
4 large lettuce leaves (We prefer romaine, but red or green lettuce work well, too.)
8 ounces sliced deli turkey breast or 2 cups shredded grilled chicken breast
2 medium carrots, shredded (1 cup)
In a small bowl, stir together the chutney and mayonnaise. Refrigerate for 15 or 20 minutes for the flavors to meld.
Spread 1/4 of the chutney-mayonnaise mixture on each tortilla; top with lettuce leaf, then the turkey (or chicken) and the carrots. Roll up the wraps. Cut in half to serve.
There you have it: Beautiful, delicious, and delightful turkey wraps with chutney and carrots, a delicious lunch or a perfect, light summer supper.
