Loaded Chicken Wraps

My husband came home from Sam’s with a roasted chicken a couple nights ago.  We only ate the leg quarters.  Tonight, I used up the two breast pieces in a delicious, stupidly simple dinner that was just DELICIOUS!  I’ll be making THESE again and often!  I use HEB Carb Sense whole wheat flour tortillas at 3 net carbs per tortilla.  I always have some in the fridge, so this meal of leftovers was super easy!  This recipe is not suitable until you are farther along in your Atkins weight loss journey, as flour product isn’t allowed until you have traversed all the rungs of the carb reintroduction ladder.  That said, these are only 4.85 net carbs per wrap, so you decide. 🙂  Together we ate four of the six wraps this made, but I was stuffed at just 1½ wraps; the hubs ate 2½ of them and gave them a resounding stamp of approval.  I didn’t use any sour cream; the hubs liked it on his.

INGREDIENTS:

6 low-carb flour tortillas (mine were 3 net carbs per)

2 small chicken breasts, pre-cooked & cut into strips

6 slices bacon, cooked, drained (I use thick slice)

2½ slices American Deluxe cheese, tear the whole slices into halves

1 c. shredded Cheddar cheese

½ c. green onion, chopped

OPTIONAL:  6 dollops sour cream (not calculated in numbers below)

DIRECTIONS:   Line a cooking sheet with parchment.  Cook the bacon in a skillet until done but not too crisp.  Drain on paper towels.  Preheat oven to 325º.  Lay the flour tortillas on the pan.  Place the cooked chicken evenly on half of each tortilla.  Next tear each slice of bacon in half and lay the two halves diagonally over the chicken meat.  Now place ½ slice American cheese on top of the bacon for each wrap.  Next sprinkle the Cheddar shreds evenly over the bacon.  The final touch is to sprinkle the green onion over each and fold the other side of the wrap over to form a half moon shape.  Press firmly with your hand.  Loosely cover the pan with foil but do not seal it up or it will sweat during cooking.  Pop into 325º oven for 15 minutes to just melt the cheeses.  Serve at once with dollop of sour cream if desired.  I served mine with a small green salad on the side.

  1. Hi Peggy. Since I always check the carb count first before I try a recipe, I was somewhat surprised at 15.06 grams for this delicious and quick meal. Am I correct in reading this is for each individual wrap? I thought of trying your brand instead of Mission for less carbs, but don’t think that would still work into my 20 grams of carb per day. At least not now.

    • Well Atkins lets you deduct the indigestible fiber from the total carbs, making each wrap only 4.85 digestible carbs. But if your program doesn’t allow this deduction, than no, I wouldn’t think you should try to fit these in during Induction or the first two week phase. That would nearly kill your daily allowance on carbs in one swoop.
