Cajun chicken, avocado and mango wraps
Easy, delicious and healthy, with a kick
*2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
*3 tbsp olive oil
*1/4 tsp lemon juice
*2 tsp cajun spice
*1 avocado
*1 tomato
*1 mango
*4 large whole wheat flour tortillas


1. Cut the chicken breasts into strips.
2. Mix the olive oil, lemon juice, and cajun spice in a small bowl.
3. Dip the chicken strips in the marinade mixture, coating them well. 4. Place the chicken in a heavy cast-iron skillet, uncovered. Cook on high heat until one side of the chicken is blackened slightly and the other side turns white (about 3-4 minutes).
5. Meanwhile, slice the avocado, mango and tomato, and set aside.
6. Flip the chicken with a spatula, lower the heat to medium, and cover the skillet to cook the chicken on the other side (about another 3-4 minutes, or until cooked through.)
7. Add the chicken, avocado, mango and tomato pieces to the flour tortillas, roll and secure with a toothpick.
8. Serve hot or cold.

-Blackening the chicken may cause your kitchen to become smoky. Turn on a fan and open the window to disperse the smoke, if possible.
-If you can't find Cajun spice, you can replace with a mixture of salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, cumin, thyme, and rosemary. Experiment to find the combination that suits your taste.
-This recipe was inspired by the excellent sandwiches made by a local bakery in Montreal.
