Baked Wraps

I don’t know what these are called but they’re amazing. You could make them with anything and I’m sure most people would like them spicy, I’m just not a fan.

Chicken and bacon baked wrapsTo serve 2 (generous)

  • 1 x onion (chopped)
  • 1 x pepper (chopped)
  • 2 x chicken breasts (or 2 people’s worth of chicken) – chopped
  • some bacon – this was a leftovers meal so I just used 2 slices for flavour (chopped)
  • some cream – again, left over from the night before, I think this is a preference thing anyway!
  • 4 x large wraps
  • 1 x tin chopped tomatos
  • 1 x tablespoon of tomato paste
  • some basil leaves

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 C. You’ll also need a baking tray that will hold 4 wrapped wraps!
  2. Chop the onion, pepper and chicken.
  3. I used a large pan and fried the bacon and put it to one side, but you could use a smaller pan and do it at the same time.
  4. Fry the chopped onion and chicken and then throw in the copped pepper.
  5. When it’s all ready, add the cream – as much or as little as you like for a minute or so and mix togther.
  6. Spoon a quarter of the bacon/chicken/onion/pepper/cream combo into each wrap, wrap up and place join-side down in the baking dish.
  7. Blend the tinned chopped tomatoes, tomato paste and basil leaves (if you don’t have a blender, just rip the leaves and stir it all together. It’ll just be lumpier.
  8. Pour the sauce over the top of the wraps and grate cheese over the top to taste.
  9. Bake for ten or so minutes, just to head the sauce through. All the important bits are already cooked so it’s ready when the sauce is hot!

*Note* I just made them with meatballs inside and they were equally amazing. I just cooked the meatballs as directed first then did the rest as above.

 

Cost

This is a good meal for leftovers, you could chuck anything in the wraps and pour any old sauce over the top. The first time I made it I did it with leftover roast chicken which would be cheaper. However, doing it on purpose would cost about: 50p for half a pack of wraps, £4 for chicken, perhaps £1 for the onion and pepper, 30p for the tomato sauce. Less than £6 for the whole thing, £3 each for dinner aint bad!
