These spicy ancho chicken wraps are a cinch to make. Chicken thighs are pan friend and punched up with cayenne, white pepper, black pepper, coriander, and of course ground ancho. Layered with refried beans, avocado, grape tomatoes, and green onions, this wrap is fresh and full of flavor.
Wild Rice Salad with Lemon Pepper Chicken is a complete meal with nutty wild rice, fresh cilantro, bright green onion, sweet yellow peppers, and spicy lemon and pepper marinated pan fried chicken. It tastes great warm but even better at room temperature, making it the perfect picnic dish.
