New Thing #303: Cabbage Wraps

Cabbage_WrapEvery so often when we need an easy dinner for our family of five, my wife will pick up a rotisserie chicken To Go from Sudbury Farms. I don't love this kind of chicken.

It's OK...I've just never been the biggest fan of chicken on the bone.

It's usually too much work for little reward - It's a meal that doesn't always fill me.

And I figure that I don't like all the work, dirtying my fingers, pulling meat off the bone, just to end up still hungry.

(I guess I'd make a pretty terrible bear.)

But earlier this week I really enjoyed this chicken - and who would have guessed I'd have cabbage to thank.

First of all, there wasn't a lot of pulling chicken off the bone. I came home later, and my wife had already put most of the chicken meat on a plate.

There was rice, there were cabbage leaves, and there was the chicken.

I put the chicken in the wrap and added a little bit of salt, and it was extremely delicious.

Now - understand where I'm coming from here - I've been to The Cheesecake Factory with people who order the fish tacos there. And the fish tacos come in some kind of leafy wrap. And I never thought those were legit tacos...because tacos have shells, not leafy wraps.

But then I had this cabbage wrap, and I'm all turned around.

So you're going to have to give me a minute to gather myself.

Everything I know about wraps has been turned on its head.
