Introduction: Chicken Bacon Ranch Wrap
Here's a recipe for a tasty snack that's sure to fill you up. Our goal is to keep the cost of each wrap around or under $10.
Here's a video tutorial for those that would like to follow along:
Step 1: Shopping
You're going to want to pick up a few ingredients.
Fully Cooked Chicken Breast Strips
Fully Cooked Bacon Strips
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Himalayan Pink Salt
Parsley (or your favored seasoning)
Step 2: Choppin' Block
First off, stack and cut your bacon into more manageable sized pieces. Effectively large bacon bits. If you want, nows the time to add the pink salt. If you do, it'll compliment the smokey flavor nicely, but don't overdo it or the bacon will become sweet as the flavor of the salt carries.
Lightly microwave the bacon so the grease pulls the salt in.
Next, cut your chicken into smaller pieces as well. We will be blending the two together later so you're going to want bite sized chunks.
Your chicken will most likely be frozen so go ahead and thaw it with the microwave as well.
Step 3: The Colonel Would Be Proud
Now that the bacon and chicken are chopped up, you're going to want to season the chicken. Mine was already lightly seasoned, but barely. I chose to go with a bit of parsley and ground black pepper, but lemon pepper would've been something I would've preferred to try.
Add your seasoning as desired.
Step 4: Sauce Boss
If you blend a bit of hot sauce in with Ranch Dressing you can make some real magic happen. All of the flavors of pepper and spice will come out, but the heat is reduced greatly by the taste of the ranch.
We're going to pour the two into a bowl and blend them together with a spoon.
Your aim will likely be a light pink color, so that the ranch isn't smothered by the hot sauce but equally the taste of the sauce can be detected under the ranch. Don't be afraid to tap a bit onto your finger and adjust your ratio as you stir.
Step 5: Drizzle Yo Sizzle
Now that everything is ready, you're going to lay down your tortilla on a plate and stir your two meats together.
It is optional to microwave your tortilla for a few seconds at a time to warm it and make it a bit easier to roll.
Once you're ready, add your meat evenly across the tortilla, then sprinkle your cheese across as if you were making a burrito.
Once these two layers are down, use your spoon to spread the sauce across the top and roll.
Step 6: Snack Attack
Now that your snack wrap is rolled and ready to go, you can either store it in the fridge and keep it for later, or you can pop it in the microwave for a few seconds.
If and when you do the latter, you'll melt the cheese and fill in all the little gaps in between the chicken and the bacon. The amalgamation of flavors really is great.
