Well, today was the first snow day of the school year. We live in the South - even the threat of snow and school is out for at least a day. Of course with a snow day, there must be snow cream. Snow cream came very close to being the recipe featured tonight at Table 4 Five, but I decided against it. The family would try yet another new dish as part of the 2011 Table 4 Five experience, but a bowl of snow cream would be served on the side. The overall family feedback was good - at least half the family had seconds - so I count this dish as a success.
Tonight's feature dish at Table 4 Five:
Rice and Chicken Wraps (from Favorite Brand Name 4 Ingredient Cookbook)
8 boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cups water
1 box Fast Cooking Recipe Long Grain & Wild Rice
1/2 cup Ranch salad dressing
1 cup shredded lettuce
8 (10-inch) flour tortillas
Cook chicken in olive oil until lightly browned on both sides (approximately 10-12 minutes). Add water, rice and contents of seasoning packet. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in center and liquid is absorbed. Stir in salad dressing.
Spoon rice mixture evenly down center of each tortilla; top with lettuce. Fold in both sides of tortillas; roll up tortilla tightly from the bottom, keeping filling firmly packed. Slice each wrap diagonally into 2 pieces.
