Chicken Curry Wraps with Cashews, Raisins and Pineapple
These Thai inspired easy lunch wraps are an amazing blend of rice, cashews, pineapples and raisins in a tasty tortilla. I came up with this recipe after brewing on my favorite Thai dishes from the local Thai restaurant. I don’t really venture too much when we eat Thai. I am also not that fond of spicy so I stay on the wimpy side of the number scale. But I do love Pineapple Chicken Fried Rice (or sometimes called cashew chicken fried rice).
I was sitting at the lunch table looking at my sons peanut butter and jelly longing for something, anything that sounded good. And then for some strange reason, my mind went to Thai food. (If you know me, you would know that was weird). At any rate, what came of that day dreaming is this recipe.
And I know most people like their own recipes, after all, we likely wouldn’t post them if we didn’t. But these wraps? These wraps are absolutely addicting. When we made them I was only half interested in them. I had made a lot and in several variations thinking we would give some to our family member who enjoy Thai. Well, they never left my table. I LOVED them. I actually found myself day after day longing for one. Do you think there is an addictive agent in curry? I happen to think there may be. Because I could not stop eating these.
In a recent conversation with my cousin Jessie, I claimed that they produce a pregnancy-type cravings in me. It is the truth. So be careful. Make a huge batch. Go ahead, you will need them.
