Basil and Chicken Wrap

Panino con Pollo e Basilico



2 cups finely minced cooked chicken

1/2 cup pine nuts

1/3 cup crumbled Gorgonzola dolce cheese

1/4 cup minced red onion

Salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup Filippo Berio Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

6 large basil leaves, washed and dried


Combine all the ingredients except the basil leaves in a bowl.

Divide and spread the mixture on each of the basil leaves. Roll up like a wrap sandwich. Serve with a couple of cherry tomatoes on a toothpick.

Note: Not everyone will be able to find large basil leaves. Not to worry, you can still enjoy the flavor of this sandwich. Finely chop about a dozen small to medium sized basil leaves and add it to the chicken mixture. Use red leaf lettuce, or another green of your choice, to wrap the mixture.
