Grilled Chicken & Garden-Fresh Basil Wraps
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (5-6 oz/150-175 g each)
1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil
2 tbsp (30 mL) Citrus & Basil Rub
4 small vine-ripened tomatoes
1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and coarsely ground black pepper
4 oz (125 g) whole milk mozzarella cheese
1 oz (30 g) Parmesan cheese
1 cup (250 mL) loosely packed fresh basil leaves plus 6 large basil leaves, divided
2/3 cup (150 mL) light mayonnaise
1 garlic clove, peeled
3 (11-in./28-cm) flour tortillas (see Cook’s Tip)
Sliced red onions (optional)
Brush chicken with oil using Chef’s Silicone Basting Brush; sprinkle with rub. Arrange chicken in Small Ridged Baker; cover with parchment paper. Microwave on HIGH 5-6 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165ºF (74ºC). Remove chicken from baker to clean Cutting Board; cool 5 minutes. Dice chicken into 1/2-in. (1-cm) pieces with Chef’s Knife.
Meanwhile, slice tomatoes with Simple Slicer on #2 setting. Blot excess moisture from tomatoes with paper towels. Sprinkle tomato slices with salt and black pepper; set aside. Grate mozzarella cheese with Microplane® Adjustable Coarse Grater; set aside. Grate Parmesan cheese with Microplane® Adjustable Fine Grater. Combine 1 cup (250 mL) of the basil, mayonnaise and garlic in Manual Food Processor; cover and pump handle until basil is finely chopped. Combine basil mixture, Parmesan cheese and chicken in Classic Batter Bowl; stir to coat.
To assemble wraps, place three tomato slices widthwise over center of one tortilla, overlapping as necessary. Top with one-third of the chicken mixture; two basil leaves; three additional tomato slices; red onions, if using; and one-third of the mozzarella cheese. Fold in sides of tortilla and roll up tightly burrito style. Repeat two times for a total of three wraps.
Preheat Grill Pan and Grill Press over medium-low heat 5 minutes. Place wraps in pan; top with Grill Press and cook 3-4 minutes per side or until grill marks appear. Remove wraps from pan; cut in half on a bias and serve immediately
