It’s a WRAP! Lime- Grilled Chicken Mexi Paninis



One of my favorite places to eat for lunch is called “Nectar”-it’s a little smoothie joint that has surprisingly awesome wraps and salads! This is where I got the inspiration for this delicious wrap…

If you don’t have an official Panini maker -a George Forman or even a simple skillet/pan will do!


Marinate chicken breasts in Italian dressing over night. Then, on a foil covered grill , sprinkle  garlic powder, seasoned salt, cracked pepper and a squeeze of lime on each. Grille on medium heat for appx 5-6 mins on each side for small chicken breasts. (I heart organic chicken)

On a wheat tortilla place mixed greens, homemade salsa, sliced chicken, and teaspoon of shredded cheddar cheese.

Tuck the two sides in and roll up. Place on a heated Panini grill. Press for appx 4 mins.

Whala! YUM!

Lime- Grilled Chicken Mexi Panini

(4 Paninis)

4 Chicken Breasts marinated in Italian dressing overnight

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp seasoned salt

1 tsp black pepper

1 lime

4 whole wheat tortilla shells

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 cup mixed salad greens

Homemade Salsa (or you may purchase)

Grill chicken breasts on a foil lined grill heated to medium. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lime. Cook for appx 5-6 mins on each side until chicken is *just* white throughout (remember chicken will continue to cook after you take it off the grill-do not over cook). Lay out your tortilla shells and disperse mixed greens, salsa, slices of your chicken breasts, and cheese. Take the two corners and fold in-then wrap. Place on a heated Panini press (or George Forman or pan). Press for 4 mins until lightly golden.
