Parmesan Chicken Wraps

Wraps make a fun change from regular dinner fare. Each member of the family can add different toppings to customize their own wrap, such as lettuce, bacon bits, sweet peppers, olives or shredded cheese.

Tip: Turn wraps into a casserole. Let chicken mixture cool. Fill tortillas; fold to enclose filling. Place in a buttered 8-inch (2 L) glass baking dish; cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Sprinkle with tomatoes. Bake, covered, in 350 °F (180 °C) oven for 30 min or until heated through. Sprinkle with basil.
