I like leftovers.
Especially leftovers that aren't really leftovers because you have turned them into a completely new dish.
Them's my favorite.
I made an Indian inspired dinner and had some roast chicken and veggie curry leftover so I decided to see what I could turn it into instead of just reheating it.
I had an avocado getting too ripe so I decided to throw that into the mix and *voila* This tasty tasty chicken wrap magically happened.
Indian Spiced Shredded Chicken Wrap with Avocado Curry Sauce
1 avocado, pitted and peeled
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp curry powder
2 Tbsp Greek yogurt
4 large, whole grain tortillas
red onions slices
leftover Indian Spiced Roasted Chicken, shredded
In a blender or food processor, process the avocado, lime juice, garlic, cumin, curry, and yogurt until smooth. Use immediately or chill in an airtight container until ready to use.
Assemble wrap: place 1 tortilla wrap on serving plate. Spread 1/4 of the avocado sauce on the middle of the wrap, going to about an inch from the bottom of the wrap.
Layer your fillers - lettuce, tomato, onion, and shredded chicken on top of the avocado sauce - again leaving an inch space at the bottom.
Fold over one side of the wrap, then fold up the bottom of the wrap, then fold over the remaining side of the wrap. Keep closed by sticking a toothpick through the side of the wrap. Repeat with remaining 3 wraps.
But wait...it looks so lonely there on the plate by itself, doesn't it?
Why not cook up a pot of rice and have some leftover Vegetable Curry with your spicy wrap?
Okay...maybe you want to make this without going through all the trouble of making the Indian Spiced Roast Chicken. Fair enough. You can cheat and use a store bought rotisserie chicken.
There you go!
That looks more like a complete dinner.
Taking one dinner and getting two different meals. Nice. Nothing to complain about there.
