Healthy Friday

Avocado Caprese Chicken Wraps
Cook's Notes: This is one amazing wrap sandwich filled with an explosion of healthy flavors and complex textures. It's loaded with slices of creamy avocado, milky mozzarella cheese, crunchy romaine, balsamic marinated tomatoes and chicken topped with fresh basil all wrapped up in a low carb flatbread called Flatout Foldit.  
Fresh fruit makes a good side. 

Disclaimer: I am not a rep for this product but I am totally won over by the taste and possibilities for use with Flatout Flatbread. And the best part is actually good for you! I used Flatout Multi-Grain with Flax made from 100% stone ground whole wheat and  and high in fiber, with half the calories and half the carbs of two slices of 100% whole wheat bread! Flatout also boasts a gluten free flatbread and many other flavor variations (their Italian Herb would also be amazing in these wraps). I was sold on their new product Flatout Foldit. 
For easier preparation the chicken can be marinated and grilled the day before or earlier in the day before serving. Recipe inspiration carlsbadcravings.com
