Ingredients

Rub

  • 3 Tablespoons Taco seasoning
  • 2 Tablespoons Spices, chili powder
  • 1 Tablespoon cumin
  • 2 Teaspoons Spices, oregano, dried
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Spices, garlic powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon pepper

Wrap & Fries

  • 2 Pounds Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken Breast
  • 6 large lettuce leaves
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 small red onion, sliced
  • 2 Ounces goat cheese
  • 1/4 Cup cilantro, chopped
  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into fried
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil

Directions

Rub

Combine the rub ingredients in a shallow bowl. Move 2 Tbsp of the rub to a small bowl (you’ll be using this later for the fries).

Wrap & Fries

Heat oven to 450 degrees (for the fries). Gather all your ingredients. Place the chicken in the bowl and cover every nook and cranny with the amazing flavors of the rub (don’t forget all those flaps and folds). Heat a gas or charcoal grill to about 400 degrees (so that it will be ready for that chicken)! Then, let the chicken rest for about 10-15 minutes while you get the sweet potato fries started. Peel and cut the sweet potatoes, placing the fries in a large stainless steel bowl as you cook. When you’re done, pour 2 Tbsp of olive oil (or enough to adequately cover the fries) over the sweet potatoes and add the reserved 2 Tbsp of rub. Toss, and then place the fries on a large baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the oven and cook for 25-30 minutes, tossing once. Get the chicken on the grill, close the grill cover and cook about 5-6 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature is 160-165 degrees. Once the chicken is done, remove it from the grill and allow it to rest about 5-10 minutes (so that you don’t lose any juices). Next, quickly prep the vegetables so that you can easily assemble everything: slice the tomatoes, thinly slice the red onion and chop the cilantro. After the chicken has rested, slice it in thin strips. To assemble the wraps, spread a spoonful or so of the goat cheese on the lettuce leaves (choose the largest ones you can, or place two smaller one close together for each wrap). Then arrange the ingredients on the bottom half of the leaf like this: 3-4 slices of chicken, 2-3 slices of tomato, a few rings of red onion and then a sprinkling of chopped cilantro. Fold over the top to make a wrap, and carefully place the wrap on a plate. When the fries are done, add a bit of cilantro over the top. Then place a small serving of fries next to the wrap. And that’s it!
