I have to say, when Land O’Lakes introduces a new product, I get really excited. Maybe I’m a little bit biased because I am a Land O’Lakes employee, but with our new product, Sauté Express, I have reason to be excited! I have been working on this product for over a year. I’ve traveled with the sales, marketing and Test Kitchens teams presenting Sauté Express to buyers at grocery stores, magazine food editors, and more.
Now that it’s finally in stores and I’m eager for friends & family to get a chance to use it for themselves.
Using this product (extensively!) in these meetings, I have really come to appreciate the usefulness of it. It really is one step, no prep. You’ll see what I mean here in a minute.
When we started recipe development for Sauté Express, I had the pleasure of sitting in on the taste panels. During these taste panels, I fell in love with a specific recipe that uses Italian Herb Sauté Express- Italian Chicken Wraps. Have you ever had a sandwich at a restaurant, only to find when you come home, your sandwiches are kind of a disappointment in comparison? Well, these Italian Chicken Wraps deliver a restaurant-quality taste, and they take less than 30 minutes to prepare.
Sauté Express comes in these handy little squares - one square seasons 8 ounces of meat.
Just unwrap the square, and melt it over medium-low heat in a non-stick skillet.
When bubbles start to form, you know it’s time to put the chicken in the pan.
Keep cooking, turning once, until both sides are golden brown and cooked through to a temperature of 165°F.
If you have one, a food thermometer comes in really handy when cooking chicken.
When the chicken is done, remove to a cutting board and cut into thin slices.
Next, mix the Parmesan cheese and mayo in a small bowl. This spread is one of the things that makes the wrap so delicious.
Spread the cheese and mayo mixture onto a 10-inch tortilla.
Next, sprinkle on some shredded Romaine lettuce.
Now, layer on some of that super flavorful and juicy chicken.
….and basil leaves. Who doesn’t love basil? It gives this wrap a really fresh flavor.
Finally, some Italian croutons. They add a nice crunch to the wrap.
Now, it’s time to roll up the tortilla, "burrito-style." What does that exactly mean? Let me show you, it took me awhile to master this technique. But once you do it a few times, it’s pretty easy. Start by folding the sides of the tortilla in towards the center…
Then, using your thumbs, push the end closest to you towards the top of the tortilla.
Then, just roll it up!
Cut the wrap in half for easier eating.
Doesn’t that look delicious?
Serve with some chips or pretzels for a satisfying lunch, or with sweet potato fries for a quick dinner.
Have you had a chance to try Sauté Express? If not, pick some up and try making these Italian Chicken Wraps. You won’t be disappointed! Make sure to come back and let me know what you thought of it.
Check back in a few days when Becky will share a Halloween recipe that is not only delicious, but cute, too!
