Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 1 lb Chicken Breast
  • 1 cup Organic Vegetable Broth
  • ⅔ cup Walnuts
  • ½ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Lemon (juiced)
  • 2 cups Baby Spinach
  • 1 cup Basil Leaves
  • ¼ tsp Sea Salt
  • ½ tsp Black Pepper
  • 4 Brown Rice Tortillas
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Place chicken breasts in a oven-safe glass dish and pour in vegetable broth. Tightly cover with foil. Bake in the oven for 60 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, create your pesto by combining walnuts, olive oil, lemon juice, spinach, basil, sea salt and black pepper in a food processor. Blend until smooth.
  4. Remove chicken from oven. Use a fork to shred the chicken.
  5. Place the pulled chicken in a bowl and toss with desired amount of pesto.
  6. Place your brown rice tortillas on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Place in oven and watch closely for 2-4 minutes. (You can also toast the tortillas over a gas stove on low-medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Watch very closely. Or warm in a microwave for 45 seconds.) Set toasted tortillas aside.
  7. Drop a few spoonfuls into a brown rice tortilla and wrap it up. Enjoy!
Notes

Make It Crunchy: Add diced celery, cherry tomatoes or sunflower seeds.

Make It Vegetarian: Skip the chicken and use roasted chickpeas.
