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


  1. Combine all the ingredients except the basil leaves in a bowl.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
