What is Caprese?

Caprese refers to something from or in the style of Capri, an Italian island.  Culinary speaking,  “Caprese” refers to its namesake  – Caprese Salad of fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella.   I am a little obsessed with Caprese.  The plump, juicy tomatoes, creamy mozzarella and fragrant basil complimented by tangy balsamic are the quintessence of the perfect bite in my book.  Healthy yet satisfying, fresh yet cheesy, creamy yet tangy.

I loooooove Caprese flavors so much I have celebrated them in my Caprese Chicken Salad with Asparagus, Avocado and Bacon, Caprese Pasta Salad, Caprese Pasta with Balsamic Chicken.  and Sheet Pan Caprese Chicken and Veggies.because Capresiliciousness should be devoured in every form – but I was still missing an uber quick, portable Caprese recipe ideal for lunch on the go or grab and go lunch in your kitchen.  Enter Avocado Caprese Chicken Wraps.  Enter the chicken wrap of chicken wraps.

These Wraps are a dream.  The easy assembly, refreshing flavors, and meaty, cheesy, crunchy textures will leave your taste buds satisfied and your waist line happy. What sets these Avocado Caprese Chicken Wraps above the rest are:  1) the Balsamic Chicken, 2) the addition of luscious avocado and 3) using Flatout®  Flatbread.  So first, let’s talk chicken!

For the chicken itself, you can use a rotisserie chicken, leftover chicken, or make some chicken breasts ahead of time.  Your pre-cooked, shredded chicken gets tossed and coated in a Balsamic “Marinade” of balsamic vinegar, splashes of olive oil, Dijon and lemon juice and seasoned with brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.  The pre-cooked chicken seeps up an astonishing amount of flavor and is eat-plain cravilicious.

You can prep the balsamic chicken while you’re making all your wraps or you can make and refrigerate the chicken at the beginning of the week so its ready at a seconds notice (as opposed to a minute 😊)

The assembly of these Avocado Caprese Chicken Wraps starts with Flatout®  Flatbread – another one of my obsessions – I’ve even made French Toast Roll Ups out of them (seriously flavor and texturally amazing)!  Typically, a wrap is rolled in a tortilla but once I tried them in Flatout® Flatbread, they became my new go-to.

The flatbread is soft yet thicker than a traditional tortilla so it doesn’t tear or get soggy AND Flatout® Flatbread is actually good for you! I used Flatout® Multi-Grain with Flax which is made from 100% stone ground whole wheat and are 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).

Next, we smother the surface of our Flatout® Flatbread with either mayo, sour cream or yogurt – totally your preference or what you have on hand.  I like a combo of half mayo and half sour cream. This simple step is crucial as it adds a delightful creaminess and silky refreshing layer to compliment the hearty filling.

Next, it’s a simple layering of our crunchy romaine, balsamic chicken, creamy avocados or guacamole, milky mozzarella, juicy tomatoes, fresh basil and crispy bacon.  Hello gorgeous!  I’ve added the ingredient amounts in the directions, but just remember, these wraps are completely customizable – there is no right or wrong way to fill your Avocado Caprese Chicken Wraps.   You can even play it up with other flavor combinations such as sun-dried tomatoes, roasted bell peppers, etc., just as long as you don’t forget the Balsamic Chicken.  Or bacon.

    As an Italian, I’m crazy about Caprese, too. We may not be able to grow a whole lot in our yard but basil we can. We have lots of basil and frankly, I could roll around in it and wear it as perfume. I made a grilled portabella mushroom caprese and if you like portabella mushroom it tastes fantastic. We are big mushroom eaters and this has been one of our favorites. I’ve already pinned several of your caprese recipes — we’ve got lots of basil to use up. Have a great weekend!! xoxo

      How nice to have tons of basil in your yard! I am planting herbs in a couple weeks and can’t wait for them to take off! I LOVE the additiona of portabella to your caprrese everything! They would taste amazing in these wraps too! Thanks Marisa, happy summer!

    Hey Jen,
    Great video! I was hoping to hear you talk 🙂
    I want to find a easy & good “make your own rotisserie chicken”, you know like Costco’s (don’t have a Costco nearby).
    The wraps look easy enough. I think I may want to warm or slightly melt the Mozzarella.
    Another great recipe from you……….thanks.

    This was a perfect dinner for summer! I love anything caprese, add in chicken and avocado and wow! I used spinach herb tortillas for wraps. I may add balsamic glaze next time. Awesome recipe!
