Simple Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wraps

I’m going to go with something Easy to make as I’m sure most people will not want to cook excessively due to the Memorial Day Holiday! So Happy Memorial Day ahead of time.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped seedless cucumber
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ground black pepper to taste
  •  
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into thin strips
  • 1 cup thick and chunky salsa
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 8 (10 inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 (10 ounce) bag baby spinach leaves

Directions

  1. Mix together the mayonnaise, cucumber, 1 tablespoon of honey, 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, and black pepper in a bowl until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet on medium-high heat, and cook and stir the chicken breast strips until they are beginning to turn golden and are no longer pink in the middle, about 8 minutes. Stir in the salsa, 1 tablespoon of honey, and 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the flavors have blended, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stack the tortillas, 4 at a time, in a microwave oven and heat until warm and pliable, 20 to 30 seconds per batch.
  4. Spread each tortilla with 1 tablespoon of the mayonnaise-cucumber mixture, top with a layer of baby spinach leaves, and arrange about 1/2 cup of chicken mixture on the spinach leaves.
  5. Fold the bottom of each tortilla up about 2 inches, and start rolling the burrito from the right side. When the burrito is half-rolled, fold the top of the tortilla down, enclosing the filling, and continue rolling to make a tight, compact cylinder.
