Chicken Cheese Steak Wrap

I have to admit something. Anytime I walk into a restaurant and order a cheese steak, if they ask me if I want chicken or beef I change my order.

I've learned that if someone calls something a "cheese steak" and then uses chicken, they probably don't really know what a cheese steak is. Cheese Steak has STEAK. Using chicken makes it a "Cheese Chicken," which really doesn't sound near as tasty.

Of course, if you read the title of this post, you'll probably realize that I'm kinda going against my own beliefs.

Yes, this recipe is called "Chicken Cheese Steak Wrap." I'm aware of the irony of complaining that a restaurant can't cook a good cheese steak if they ask if you want chicken or beef.

But I don't run a restaurant.

Call it what you want. It's pretty tasty.

I present to you my Chicken Cheese steak Chicken Wrap:

Chicken Breast
Small Onion, sliced thin into rings
peppers, sliced into rings
mushrooms, sliced thick
two wedges laughing cow cheese - cut into chunks
cheddar cheese - about 60 grams or two slices
2 Large tortillas

Coat pan with non-stick spray. Cook chicken breast in frying pan until no longer pink and remove. Add onions, peppers and mushrooms to the pan and a couple ounces of water and put the lid over the pan. Stir occasionally and add more water if needed. You want to steam and saute the vegetables.

Slice chicken into chunks and add them and the laughing cow cheese to pan once the onions are semi-translucent. Stir continuously to melt the cheese and coat evenly. Use a small amount of water in the pan if needed to keep the cheese from sticking.

Once everything is coated remove from heat and cover with cheddar cheese. Replace the lid.

While cheese melts, plate two warm tortillas and place a handful of shredded lettuce on each. Then add chicken mixture evenly between the two tortillas.

Top with a small amount of light ranch dressing or condiment of choice.

Points Plus Total - about 11 points per serving (Mine came out to 10, so check your tortillas. Other than the tortillas, everything is 5 points Plus.)
