Our Family's Bitter/Sweet Life

Friday Fare!

Mrs. Nurse Boy here. Like you were expecting Nurse Boy to suggest a recipe, right? If he did, it would be a bowl of Peanut Butter Captain Crunch with skim milk, poured to overflowing. Let's just say that he is not the cook in this household. Although, he can grill a mean steak.

We are almost a week away from Valentine's Day. I know it is really just a day for the greeting card industry, but it is always nice to be thankful for the special people in your life. Next week, we are going to focus on our marriage and share some funny facts about what brought us together, what keeps us together, and our journey along the way. Just for fun. We hope it helps you stay focused on all of the blessings in your life. Come back next week to read, laugh, cry (just kidding!), and maybe even share some of your story!

Today I will share another family favorite. I have adapted this recipe from hungry-girl.com. If you haven't checked her out, you should! She takes many of our favorite recipes and makes them healthier. So, I took one of her recipes and added more fat. It's OK, I'll own it. This is still healthy and my whole family loves this recipe~including my extended family.

BBQ Chicken Wraps
(All measurements are approximate.)

About 1 lb. cooked boneless skinless lean chicken breast, chopped or shredded
10 small low-fat flour tortillas
About 3 cups raw coleslaw (Or you can buy prepared coleslaw and drain or rinse all excess dressing. If you do this, you do not need the Marzetti's Dressing.)
4-6 tablespoons of Marzetti's Light Coleslaw Dressing
1/2- 1 cup of BBQ sauce (Our favorite for this recipe is Cookies brand. Something sweet and tangy is perfect. Use whatever you prefer.)
Shredded Cheese is optional~~~This is where you can pack on the fat. I prefer these without the cheese, but most of my family chooses to add some cheese.

1. Mix the cooked chicken with the proper amount of BBQ sauce. You don't want this to be too messy, yet you want it to have some flavor.

2. For the coleslaw, I prefer to mix my own. I add small amounts of dressing to the raw coleslaw. Maybe 4 tablespoons or so. You want it to have a little bit of a sweet flavor, but not a messy, drippy mixture. The coleslaw is more about its crisp texture in this recipe.

3. Warm the tortillas. Next, add the chicken, coleslaw, and cheese! Easy and delicious!

I already made these this week and I remembered to take a picture! I know! Amazing! I like to serve these with corn and a salad.

Have a great weekend!

Ohhh, yummy.

That would be so much easier to have the sauce already coating everything. Now to convince my family that just for one night they all want the same sauce...
