Spiced Chicken, Green Apple, Goat Cheese Avocado Wrap


2 Spinach or whole wheat wraps
1 Chicken breast, skinless/boneless  (butterfly chicken breast if you like)
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon smoked paprika (preferred) regular will do
¼ teaspoon cumin powder
4 ounces Goat Cheese, room temperature
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
2 tablespoons honey
1 Fuji apple (skinned and core removed, cut into slices
)½ Avocado (skin and pit removed, cut into slices)

½ Lemon cut in half and juiced (seeds removed)
Kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste
Fresh spinach or romaine

Combine cinnamon, paprika, cumin powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Place chicken breast on a flat surface, and coat one side of breast with spice mixture.

Heat your bar be que to grill.  Grill chicken breast for 5-7 minutes on one side. Turn chicken over and cook for another 5-7 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°.  Transfer the chicken breast on a plate to cool and slice into strips.

In a bowl, mix together goat cheese, cream cheese and honey. In a separate bowl add apples, avocado and a couple squirts of lemon juice.

Place wraps on a flat surface. Add an even amount of the cheese mixture in a straight line to the front of the wrap. Add apple and avocado slices, then chicken strips.  Take one of the wraps sides and fold it in to the middle. Roll wrap starting with the side that has the chicken mixture, top with fresh greens. Roll as tightly as you can without breaking the wrap. Serve.
