Eastern and Western flavors meld in this light, creamy chicken curry salad wrapped in a whole-wheat flour tortilla. Recipe features tender chicken breast, curry mayonnaise, raisins, almonds, crisp lettuce and Uncle Ben’s® naturel™ Wild Red Wholegrain Blend.

Ingredients

1 qt (4 cups) Water
1½ tbsp. Butter
2 tsp. Salt
1 lb. Uncle Ben’s® naturel™ Wild Red Wholegrain Blend
2 cups Mayonnaise
½ cup Curry powder
1 tbsp. Salt, kosher
1 cup Scallions, white and green parts, chopped
1 cup Raisins (preferably golden), plumped in hot water for 2 minutes
1½ cups Almonds, slivered, toasted
8 cups (approx. 4 lbs) Chicken breast, boneless, skinless, cooked, cubed 1/2”
36 Whole wheat flour tortillas, 8”
2¼ cups Major Grey’s chutney, solids chopped
36 Romaine lettuce leaves, stem ends trimmed, 7” long

Steps

1. Bring water to boil. Add butter, salt, and rice; stir.

2. Cover tightly and simmer (over low heat) until most of the water is absorbed (about 20-25 minutes).

3. Transfer to a sheet pan and cool. Reserve chilled.

4. Combine mayonnaise, curry powder, salt, scallions, raisins and almonds.

5. Add chicken and stir to coat with curry mayonnaise. May be held refrigerated for up to 24 hours.

6. To assemble wrap, lay tortilla on a flat work surface. Spread 1 tablespoon chutney over the entire wrap.

7. Lay 1 lettuce leaf on tortilla, with the tip of the leaf touching the edge of the tortilla that is farthest from you. The edge of the tortilla closest to you should remain uncovered.

8. Spread ¼ cup chicken curry mixture in center of lettuce. Top with ¼ cup of Uncle Ben’s® naturel™ Wild Red Wholegrain Blend.

9. Fold the bottom, uncovered edge of the tortilla towards the center of the tortilla and over the filling. Fold the left and right sides of the tortilla towards the center of the tortilla until they overlap over the filling. The chutney should hold the wrap together.

Additional Tips

Additional Tips

  • Serve individual wrap as a grab-and-go item for eating on the run.
  • For a light meal, pair one wrap with a seasonal fruit salad or soup.
  • Commercially prepared chutney makes an excellent condiment on the side.

When revamping an old cafeteria or building a new retail spot, the design process can feel like fitting together the pieces of a puzzle: What needs to fit in the space, and what’s the most efficient flow for staffers, cooks, diners and more?

Restaurant design is all about catching a customer’s eye —and it’s sometimes particularly beneficial to be far-sighted. As Airbnb has proven with its San Francisco headquarters, where cafe spaces are inspired by cities like Cairo and Mumbai, elaborate design schemes that evoke far-flung geographic regions can be done to great effect. But operators are finding simpler ways to achieve that feel.

Just eight days before Dec. 1, when operators would have to comply with the U.S. Department of Labor’s new overtime rules, a federal judge in Texas slapped an injunction on the regulation. The move indefinitely halted the rules that would have doubled the overtime threshold to $47,476, affecting nearly 4.2 million workers, according to the DOL. For some operators, the move was too little, too late. Now, they have to answer to employees who had been briefed on promised wage increases.
