If you’re pressed for time but you want to add something different to the lunch menu, this sandwich made of chicken tortillas and jalapeño should do the trick. Here is what you’ll need.
- Pair of skinless and boneless chicken breast halves (roughly four ounces)
- Eight soft lettuce leaves
- Pair of teaspoons of olive oil
- Four flour tortillas of at least six or seven inches
- A dash of black pepper (freshly ground)
- A dash of black pepper (freshly ground) for taste
- 1/3 cup of mayonnaise
- Teaspoon of fresh lime juice
- A small, diced plum potato
- A minced scallion
- Tablespoon of minced jalapeño pepper
Begin by stirring all of the ingredients for the mayonnaise in a small bowl. Have a taste and make seasoning adjustments as necessary. Once it’s ready, put it aside.
Using a pair of plastic wrap sheets, place one of the chicken breast halves and flatten it so the thickness is about a ¼ inch. Do the same for the rest of the chicken.
Use high heat to warm up a stove-top grill pan. Brush one side of each chicken breast using olive oil. Turn down the heat to medium-high and place the chicken on the grill with the oily side face down and then cook for about four minutes. Use the oil to brush the top of the chicken before turning and then cooking for an additional three minutes or until the chicken has lightly browned and is cooked through.
Move the chicken over to a plate and sprinkle using pepper. Slice into strips of a 1/4-inch wide and then cover to ensure it remains warm. Place the tortillas between a pair of paper towels and then microwave on high for at least fifteen seconds or until it has become warm and moist.
Use about three tablespoons of the mayo to spread across each tortilla before topping with a layer of greens. Place the strips of chicken across each tortilla center and then fold the edges over the chicken, ensuring they overlap at the center. Use a toothpick to fasten the tortilla and you’re ready to serve.
