Myka’s Perfect Curry Chicken Wraps

We are so happy to feature a guest post from yet another Junior Chef!  This time we welcome Myka from Kentucky. Read Myka's story below.

 Ingredients:
2 grilled skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
– 2 stalks celery, chopped
– 1 red apple, peeled and diced
– 1/4 cup raisins
– 1/2 cup mayonnaise
– 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
– Salt and pepper
– 2 (10-inch) whole-wheat tortillas

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine the chicken, celery, apple, raisins, mayonnaise, and curry powder. Stir to combine, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Divide the mixture between the tortillas, and wrap tightly around the filling from bottom to top, overlapping one end, burrito style. Cut the wraps in half to serve.
