I recently became bored of the typical flavour combinations that I cook with and decided to venture out. While watching a show that featured Provence, a region of France, I learned that star anise and orange are a popular flavour combination in that part of the world. Since then, I have been playing around with this inspiration and created a Star Anise and Orange Chicken Wrap recipe.
Star Anise and Orange Chicken Wrap Recipe Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon grape seed oil (or olive oil)
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 2 tsp orange rind
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 tsp ground star anise
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 12 corn tortillas (1 package)
- 1 tomato
- 1 avocado
- Romaine lettuce
- Feta cheese
Star Anise and Orange Chicken Wrap Recipe Directions:
Combine greek yogurt, grape seed oil, orange juice, orange rind, diced garlic cloves, ground star anise, ginger, black pepper, and salt in a bowl. The orange rind will give the sauce a more intense orange flavour.
Chop the chicken breasts into cubes and add to the sauce. Let the chicken marinate in the sauce for at least a few hours. I let it marinate in the fridge overnight.
Add chicken mixture to a frying pan on medium high heat. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain excess liquid and cook for another 5 minutes. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook corn tortillas for 3 minutes and remove from oven. I use corn tortillas because they are are gluten-free. However, you can use your preferred type of wrap.
Add some chicken, tomato, avocado, romaine lettuce, and feta cheese. Enjoy!
