SPICED CHICKEN, GREEN APPLE
& AVOCADO COTTAGE WRAP


INGREDIENTS:

2 fajita-sized spinach or whole wheat wraps
1 chicken breast (butterfly chicken breast if you like), skin removed
4 tb canola oil
¼ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp paprika
¼ curry powder
1 cup cottage cheese
4 ounces cream cheese
2 tb honey
½ granny smith apple (skinned and core removed, cut into slices)
½ red apple (skinned and core removed, cut into slices)
½ lemon cut in half and juiced (seeds removed)
½ avocado (skin and pit removed)
kosher salt
black pepper


DIRECTIONS:

Place chicken breast on a flat surface. Sprinkle with cinnamon, paprika, curry powder, salt and pepper on both sides.

Place canola oil in a sauté pan over moderate heat. Put chicken breast in the pan and cook for 3 to 5 minutes on one side. Turn chicken over and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes. If need be alternate turning chicken over on both sides until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Place chicken on the side to cool.

In a bowl, place cottage cheese and cream cheese and mix together. Add honey. Add apples and a pinch of lemon juice. Add chicken and gently mix together.

Place wraps on a flat surface. Add an even amount of the chicken mixture in a straight line to the front of the wrap. Take one of the wraps sides and fold it in to the middle. Roll wrap starting with the side that has the chicken mixture. Roll as tightly as you can without breaking the wrap. Serve.
