You can assemble these chicken tortilla roll-ups a few hours ahead of time and keep them refrigerated so you won’t be stuck in the kitchen. The recipe is a crossover between mediterranean cuisine with dried tomatoes and classic asian flavors with rice and rice vinegar; but we encourage you to experiment with your own variations!

Ingredients Chicken Tortilla Roll Ups

Makes about 30 pieces:

  • 5 wheat tortillas (about 6-inch diameter)
  • 5 thin slices of roast chicken breast
  • 1 cup of cooked sushi rice
  • 1 jar of dried tomatoes in olive oil
  • 2/3 cup (150g) of cream cheese (Philadelphia for me)
  • 1 bunch of basil
  • Arugula
  • 1 bowl of water + rice vinegar


1. Mix together the cream cheese and dried tomato.
2. Place a tortilla on the mat previously lined with cling film. Spread the entire surface of the tortilla with the cream cheese and tomatoes mixture.
3. Place a slice of chicken on one half of the tortilla. Place 3 basil leaves and dried tomatoes 1-inch from the edge of the tortilla.
4. Wet your fingers with vinegar and water and spread cooked rice next to the dried tomatoes.
5. Top with a small handful of arugula.
6. Roll each tortilla tightly wrapped in cling film, do not fold in the ends like you would with a burrito but leave them free. Use a sharp knife to cut into 1-inch thick slices, tie with a toothpick, and transfer to a serving platter or bowl.
