Grilled Orange Sesame Chicken Wraps with Asian Cole Slaw

Tried this new to me recipe tonight and again, a hit with the fam!!  I got it from The $5 Dinner Mom and it was perfect for the hot weather.  It was quick to prepare and didn't cost a lot of money which is a definite bonus.  I already had most of the ingredients so only had to pick up the burritos, pineapple and cole slaw mix.  9++ rating from everyone at the table AND my dairy allergic daughter could indulge with the family as well.  :)

Grilled Orange Sesame Chicken Wraps with Asian Cole Slaw

3 chicken breasts, cut thin horizontally, about 1.5 lbs.
2 cups orange juice
2 Tbsp. toasted sesame seeds (I had them but decided to use about 1.5 Tbsp. sesame oil instead
4-6 burrito sized whole wheat tortillas
pineapple or other fresh fruit

Asian Cole Slaw

1 12 oz. bag cole slaw mix
1/3 cup mayonaisse
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
1 Tbsp. peanut butter
1 tsp. ground ginger
couple dashes of pepper

Place the chicken breasts in a shallow dish or resealable plastic baggie.  Add the orange juice and toasted sesame seeds (or sesame oil).  Let sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hour up to overnight.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the mayo, soy sauce, sesame oil, peanut butter, ginger and pepper.  Pour over the cole slaw in a larger mixing bowl and toss well.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Grill chicken breast until done.  Remove to a plate or cutting board and slice into strips.

Assemble the wraps by adding some Asian Cole Slaw and sliced chicken to the burrito.  Roll and eat.

Serve with pineapple or other fresh fruit.  My husband put the cut up pineapple onto the burrito and thought it was fantastic!
