Last Minute Recipe: Wrap Curry Au Poulet

Hello beautiful bloggers!
I know some of you are working like ten elves around the house decorating, baking and wrapping presents! Thank you for taking time to read this in-spite-of your busy busy schedule.


I will not be around in bloggy world for a few days. Me and my hubby will be on a road trip from AZ to IL to be with my family for Christmas, but I will always be checking your blogs through my phone because I just can't get enough of your creative projects and yummy recipes! But before I leave, I want to leave you a different kind of "Cinderella Story" that includes recipe and decor and good time :)


The day of the Ladies' Christmas Party came. I was feeling so down. Everybody at the party had something delightful to bring. I didn't have anything. We didn't do any grocery for this week for our goal was to empty the fridge before our trip. The fridge was looking sad and empty. All there was, were leftover cheese, lettuce, mayo, sour cream that was almost empty and two small chicken breasts. I checked on my spice box to see what spices I have.
For a moment there, imagined myself I was at one of those cooking challenges my hubby loves to watch. 
 Since fairy godmother wasn't around for help,  I had to be resourceful and creative and used whatever I have. Plus, we have to use up everything in our fridge that may spoil like fresh veggies. I hate throwing away food. Then, I remembered this wrap we love to order in a cafeteria back in France.

Wrap Curry au Poulet
I don't really measure when I cook, but this is the best guess I could make. 

1/2 cup Mayo
1/3 cup sour cream
1/8 tsp Cinnamon 
1/8 tsp Cumin
1 1/2 tsp Curry Madras
Dash of Salt 
Ground Pepper
1 tbsp water

2 chicken breasts cut in small cubes
Lettuce

I pan fried the chicken till it was golden brown. I set aside and let it cool down. Next, mix all the first 8 ingredients well in a bowl. Then on the flour tortilla, I laid down some lettuce, put the chicken on top and pour the curry mixture as wanted. I rolled it into wrap and stick cheese and toothpick to hold the wrap. 

I sliced the edges and had the pleasure eating it! Then I cut it in three pieces
I lined them all in a nice plate given to me by my grandma June. Then, I printed a small label and put the name of my appetizer. I used a frame from The Graphics Fairy. In this way, the ladies didn't had to ask what was it. 
My humble left-over masterpiece was noticed because it was the only dish that had a label. Plus.. it's in French! The ladies thought it had a nice presentation, and the appetizer itself was complimented! Not even one guessed it was made of left-overs ;)
 Michelle, the hostess of the party has a very beautiful place that I just had to take a picture of it. I couldn't take my eyes off her DIY Banner!



We had a blast at the party! And to prove it, I made a sideshow of photos taken during the party along with a song "Rockin' around the Christmas Tree'!


Have you made a last minute party recipe? What was it? I would love to hear the story! :) 
I hope you are all having great time!

Till the next post!
