Over the Weekend - Curried Chicken Wraps


Hope everyone had a great weekend! Our Saturday was spent shopping for my 12 year old daughter's 6th grade camp. She left this morning and will be gone for 5 days -the longest she's ever been away from us. You've never seen a girl more excited though, and I'm so happy for her!
I did a lot of cooking and cleaning on Sunday. I'm in the process of re-organizing and re-decorating my kitchen -- just to freshen it up a bit. I also made one of my daughter favorite dishes - Curried Chicken Wraps - to take in her sack lunch to camp (see recipe below).

3 split (1 1/2 whole) chicken breasts, bone in, skin on
Olive oil
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups good mayonnaise
1/3 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup chutney (recommended: Major Gray's)
3 tablespoons curry powder
1 cup medium-diced celery (2 large stalks)
1/4 cup chopped scallions, white and green parts (2 scallions)
1/4 cup raisins
1 cup whole roasted, salted cashews, chopped (we skip this)
6 tortillas
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the chicken breasts on a sheet pan and rub the skin with olive oil. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until the chicken is just cooked. Set aside until cool enough to handle. Remove the meat from the bones, discard the skin, and shred the chicken in pieces.
For the dressing, combine the mayonnaise, wine, chutney, curry powder, and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Process until smooth.
Combine the chicken with enough dressing to moisten well. Add the celery, scallions, and raisins, and mix well. Refrigerate for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend. Add the cashews to the chicken.
Fill the center of each tortilla with the chicken mixture. Fold the 2 sides of the tortilla over the filling so that the sides overlap. Roll the tortilla from bottom to top, and cut in half diagonally.
