Italian Chicken Pasta Wrap #SundaySupper #SauteExpress


Italian Chicken Pasta Wrap #SundaySupper #SauteExpress


Sometime I get into a cooking rut. I want to cook, I want to create amazing meals for my family but sometimes my energy level just isn't up to speed with what I want to do. I work a full time job, write articles for a few magazines and companies and blog here at BigBearsWife.com.
Some weeks it's easy peasy and then some weeks it's sleepless night and lots of coffee. But it's what I love, so it's worth it.
On the weeks that I get bombard with tons of deadlines at the same time (like last week and this week), I get about 30 minutes to an hour for dinner and time with my hubby before I have to start editing pictures or writing articles. If I can get dinner made during that time, I'm super woman. Thankfully I've got a few meals that I can make in 30 minutes or less! (haha therefor I can be super woman!)
This week the Land O Lakes® Italian Herb Sauté Express™ Sauté Starter really helped me get out of my "take-out" rut and back into the kitchen.

The the Land O Lakes® Sauté Express™ Sauté Starters have the herbs, butter, pepper and olive oil already mixed in. They pack a huge flavor in the quick meals I've been fixing this week.

The Italian Chicken Pasta Wrap below can be made as a pasta dish (leave out the wrap part) or as a wrap. 
They take 25-30 minutes to make, so they're perfect for my busy days.

Remove chicken from pan and cut into bite size pieces. Set aside.
Heat a medium pan on medium low and melt two of Land O Lakes® Italian Herb Sauté Express™ Sauté Starter squares. Once melted, pour melted squares of Land O Lakes® Italian Herb Sauté Express™ Sauté Starter into the pot of warm pasta and mix well until all of the pasta is coated.
In a large bowl bowl mix together the diced chicken, diced cherry tomatoes.

Heat a stack of tortillas in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. Heating them will make them easier to fold and wrap.
Lay one tortilla on a flat surface. Fill the center with a little bit of the pasta, spreading it just a little to go across the middle of the tortilla.

Wrap pasta in the tortilla like a burrito.
