Brunch Recipe - Chicken and Asparagus Wraps

Brunches are so much fun- a little breakfast, a little lunch and easy to put one together. I love these simple wraps that are so full of flavor.

1/2 C mayonnaise
1/2 C sour cream or plain yogurt
1/4 C thinly sliced green onions
1 T chopped fresh basil leaves or 1/2 tsp dried basil leaves, crushed
1 T lemon juice
1/2 t salt
1/4 t grated lemon peel
1/2 C water
12 oz asparagus spears, trimmed
4 8-in. flour tortillas
2 C cut-up cooked chicken (in a hurry - use a precooked rotisserie chicken from the store)
1/2 C cherry tomatoes, halved

1- In a small bowl, combine mayo, sour cream, green onions, basil, lemon juice, salt and lemon peel. Chill until ready to serve.
2- In 10-inch skillet, bring water to a boil. Add asparagus and cook covered 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and rinse with cold water until cool.
3- On each tortilla, evenly arrange chicken, asparagus, and tomatoes, then top with mayo mixture. Roll up, garnish, if desired with mixed greens and enjoy!
This recipe makes 4 wraps.
