Review: Mission Wraps - Chicken Wraps ala Fajita

A lot of times when it comes to meal times for Capt'n Hook and I, we would usually go simple especially when we're not fans of rice. We would opt for noodles, sandwiches, wraps or just salad.

I've discovered Mission Wraps some time back and seems like it is getting easier to get them these days. I've seen them at most supermarkets and hypermarkets. Retailing around RM7+ and there are promotions now where you'll get a bag of Mission Tortilla Chips with every 2 packets of wraps purchased. So I would look for such promos before I buy them :p and the last I saw such promo again was last week!

These wraps comes in a few flavours and I think I have tried Wholegrain, Potato, Garlic and Onion & Chive. The thing I like most about Mission wraps is it's resealable ziplock packets as we usually can't finish all 8 pieces in one go. So I'll just ziplock the bag and chuck it into the fridge. At times, when it comes out from the fridge, it can be quite dry. What I do is just sprinkle both sides with a little water and warm the wraps gently on a frying pan, a couple of minutes on both sides.

Another great tip I would like to share is... wash, dry and keep the resealable plastic bags! I know, sounds like a hoarder I am but I dislike wastage and being NOT environmental friendly. Since the bag is quite sturdy, I've used it to marinade meat. Other time, I've stored leftover homemade capatis in one, perfect size, I tell you. I can think of many other ways to reuse such bags :p perhaps I shall share that in another post.

Most times I will just sprinkle some salt & black pepper on a piece of chicken breast and grill it on a grill pan or simply fry it on a frying pan. Both work just as fine. Let the meat cool down a little before slicing into strips before using in my wraps or sandwiches.

After a while, I sort of like give a little variety on the marinade. This particular marinade is something like fajita and I've used chicken fillets hehehe yeah the lazy in me, don't even need to slice them up and use them whole in the wraps.

Fajita Chicken Wrap

As for the accompaniments, you can use any combinations of fresh lettuce leaves, shredded carrot/jicama/cucumber, avocado slices, tomato or even kiwifruit salsa, etc; sour cream or yoghurt; at times I just squeeze Kewpie mayonnaise over the veggies; you got what I mean now... the combinations are endless, just use your imagination. Actually quite a good way to clear up the fridge.

Chicken Wraps ala Fajita(Enough for 4 wraps)

350 g chicken fillets (about 8 pieces), pat dry with paper towels

2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp salt (I've used Himalayan but you might need to adjust the amount as Himalayan is not as salty)

Mix all the ingredients for the marinade in a mixing bowl. Add in the chicken fillets and mix evenly. Cover and leave in the fridge to marinade, about 1 hour but longer is nicer.

Remove chicken from the fridge and let it get to room temperature. Pan fry fillets in frying pan with a little oil on both sides till cooked. Shouldn't take long... maybe around 6 - 8 minutes on medium heat.

Remove fillets to a plate and cool down a little before assembling the wraps.

Thanks Sean. Yeah the wraps are surprisingly very good and pliable, did not crack when you wrap them.

That's right Daphne! I've even used them to mop up curries just like chapati lol
