Chicken Cream Cheese Pinwheels(Top Pick!)

One of my personal favourites, it’s different from your everyday cream cheese wrap and packs a punch of flavour! Don’t believe me? Try it out and tell me you don’t fall in love with them like I did!

We make these all the time for parties and special occasions. Everyone always enjoys them! So here it is..a healthier version of them! This recipe originally came from a janet and greta cookbook but I modified it a bit to make it even tastier and healthier!

For One:

Ingredients: 

– 1 6-inch Whole wheat wrap

-1/4 cup shredded chicken

-1 tbsp grated low-fat cheddar cheese

-1 tsp green onion(or more to taste)

-2 large tbsp minced red pepper (you can sub green but red really makes the recipe!)

-2 tbsp fat-free or low-fat cream cheese

-1/2 tbsp low-fat sourcream

-1/2 tsp red pepper jelly(This is what gives the wraps their unique flavour! A little goes a long way so add what you like if you find this is to little)

Directions:

  1. In medium bowl, combine chicken, cheddar cheese, green onions, and red pepper. Set aside.
  2. In another medium bowl, beat together cream cheese, sour cream, and red-pepper jelly with electric mixer at low speed (or fork)
  3. On one of the tortillas, spread 1/3 of the cream cheese mixture on one side of the tortilla. Sprinkle with 1/3 chicken mixture, leaving a 1/2 inch border of just cream cheese around the edge
  4. Roll tortilla up tightly, jelly-roll style, and seal the ends. Wrap in plastic wrap. Repeat process with remaining tortillas
  5. Refrigerate wrapped tortillas for at least 2 hrs. Remove the plastic wrap, cut in half or into small pinwheels. Serve cold.Nutrition Facts for one 6-inch wrap: 4g sugar, 20 carbs, 4.5g fat(you can use fat-free wraps for even less fat), 24g protein*For a party*:
