Truth is, I seldom eat fast food; not because I'm a goody two-shoes and my mantra is "it shall never pass my lips," but I think mostly because I work from home and there is nothing "fast" about having to go out for a quick meal.

Still, a couple of weeks ago I was running errands and I was hungry and wasn't going to be home for some time so I decided to take the plunge. I saw a Burger King and soon my car was heading through the drive-thru. I hadn't been to a Burger King in years and I was hoping I could just get a Baby Whopper or something… you know, just to tide me over.

Well, son of a gun… they had wraps; see what I miss from never going? The Chicken with Apples and Cranberries sounded appealing and it was available either grilled or fried; I went all the way bad… yes, it was fried baby!

I can't deny, I loved it but I also knew that I wanted to make it at home. How hard could that be? It's not!

Directions

For the chicken strips

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, walnuts, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne together well. Dip the chicken pieces into the egg mixture, then dredge in the breadcrumb mixture.

Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Transfer the chicken to the baking sheet and bake until crispy on outside and lightly browned, turning once, about 10-12 minutes.

For the cranberry spread

In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, sour cream or yogurt, honey, mustard, and cranberries. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and set aside.

For the wraps

Layer on each tortilla the lettuce, chicken, spread, and apples. Fold, serve, and enjoy!
