I tried making lettuce wraps with romaine. Worked great! The bigger leaves worked best. In the photo, I had some grilled chicken, crasins, pine nuts and raspberry vinaigrette. It’s a salad-salad wrap.
1 chicken breast, cut lengthwise into strips
1 cup plain yogurt (home made is best)
1/2 box Chicken In a Biscuit crackers
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons tarragon or marjoram
1 cup sweet butter
Clean the chicken and put into a plastic ziploc bag. Pour yogurt over chicken and refrigerate for at least two hours. You may optionally salt and pepper the chicken before adding to the bag. It’s your only chance to season the meat.
Combine the crackers, cheese, and herbs into coarse crumbs. I use a small food processor.
Melt half of the butter and pour into bottom of a baking dish.
Dredge the chicken in the breadcrumb mixture and set into buttered baking dish. Pour remaining butter over chicken. Bake for 35-45 minutes in a 350 degree oven until golden brown.
I didn’t get a decent photograph of the final product this time. I am planning on making this again this week, so maybe better luck?
