MrsDrPoe: Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wraps

Last week I was able to visit the Lukes for a few days, and they made all kinds of tasty treats for me. One of the first recipes of theirs that I'd like to share with you is one that Mrs. Luke developed herself, based on some inspiration from their honeymoon...Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wraps (serves 4).

Ingredients: 2 boneless skinless chicken breast, 1/2 cup + 3 Tbs Jamaican Jerk marinade, 4 slices of bacon, 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (not shown), 1/2 cup mayo, 1 mango, 1 tomato, 1 head of lettuce, 4 tortillas, 1/8 cup onion (finely diced, not shown), 1/2 tsp garlic powder (not shown), 1/2 tsp onion powder (not shown), 1/2 tsp salt (not shown), 1/2 tsp pepper (not shown).

Dice the chicken and mix it in a ziplock bag with the 1/2 cup of Jamaincan Jerk marinade. Place the bag in the refrigerator and allow the chicken to marinade for at least six hours. Slice the mango and puree it using a food processor. It should look like the image below:

Keep all but 2 Tablespoons of the mango puree in a small bowl. Combine the reserved 2 Tbs of puree, mayo, onion, the remaining Jamaican Jerk sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper to make a sauce:

Place the chicken and marinade in a skillet:

Cook over med-high heat till done. Also cook the bacon using your favorite method (microwave, stove top, oven, etc.). Then slice the tomato and lettuce into small pieces, and crumble the cooked bacon. To assemble, layer the mayo sauce, cheese, chicken, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mango puree on a tortilla:

Then wrap and enjoy! It's delicious and tastes just like a trip to the islands...or to the NC coast.
