Posted By Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom On May 18, 2011 @ 6:30 pm In chicken,Grill,Recipes | No Comments

Simply.

Tasty.

Easy.

Oh so flavorful.

Juicy, smoky grilled chicken breasts with a hint of sweet from the orange juice and savory from the sesame.

Along with cole slaw bursting with different asian flavors…yum-ilicious!

And while I may have gone a smidge over my $5 mark…we have plenty of slices of grilled orange sesame chicken for the kids to have for lunch tomorrow…and if enough, I’ll put some on a sandwich!

Grilled Orange Sesame Chicken Wraps with Asian Cole Slaw

Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breasts, grilled and sliced, about 1.5 lbs ($2.82)
  • 2 cups orange juice ($.50)
  • 2 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds ($.25)
  • 4-6 burrito size whole wheat tortillas ($.69)
  • Pineapple, or other fresh fruit ($.75)
  • Asian Cole Slaw

  • 1 12 oz bag cole slaw mix ($1)
  • 1/3 cup mayonaisse ($.10)
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce ($.05)
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil ($.50)
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut butter, I used crunchy ($.10)
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger ($.10)
  • Couple dashes of pepper

Directions

  • Place the chicken breasts in a shallow dish or resealable plastic baggie. Add the orange juice and toasted sesame seeds. (To toast sesame seeds, add them to a hot skillet and toast for 30 seconds to minute, shaking the skillet so they don’t burn.) Let sit in the refrigerator at least 2 hours, overnight, ideally.
  • Grill the chicken breasts.  Slice into thin strips, once cool enough to handle.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the mayo, soy sauce, sesame oil, peanut butter, ginger with a couple dashes of pepper. Pour over the cole slaw in a larger mixing bowl and toss well.
  • Assemble the wraps by adding some Asian Cole slaw and sliced grilled chicken.  Roll and eat.
  • Serve Grilled Orange Sesame Chicken Wraps with Asian Cole Slaw with Pineapple, or other fresh fruit.

Cost $6.86 (And we had LOTS of chicken and cole slaw leftover!)
