Cobb Salad Wraps with Tomatoes, Avocado and Black Beans

A cobb salad traditionally has loads of chicken, blue cheese, bacon and heavy dressing. I’ve lightened up this classic and tossed the main ingredients into a wrap. It’s delicious.

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Lightly coat a nonstick grill pan with vegetable spray and set over medium heat. Grill the chicken for 4 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Cool slightly, then slice thinly.

2. Combine the tomatoes, red pepper, avocado, black beans, green onions and parsley in a large bowl. Add the lemon juice, sour cream, olive oil, garlic, chili sauce, salt and pepper and mix well.

3. Spread one-half of each of the tortillas with some of the tomato mixture. Top with slices of chicken and the shredded cheese. Fold in 2 sides and roll up. Place the wraps in a clean grill pan and cook for 5 minutes, turning halfway, just enough to warm through. (Or heat in a 400°F oven for 5 minutes until warm.) Cut in half and serve.

INGREDIENTS
8 oz skinless boneless chicken breasts (about 2 breasts)
1/2 cup diced plum tomatoes
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
