MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 4, 2012

Great homemade wrap! I love mango chutney and it paired nicely with the chutney. I could have had more jerk seasoning, but all in all a very light and fresh meal.

MY REVIEW

Really good! I was skeptical at first with how the cream cheese and chutney would taste but it made a great spread! I used a friend's jerk sauce instead of seasoning (just dumped a bunch on each piece of chicken as they were cooking). I couldn't find chutney in the store so I used peach-mango preserves. These were really good!

I substituted a mango salsa for the chutney. Easy to prepare and delicious.

I made my jerk seasoning from scratch and used 6 times the recipes amount on my chicken (I like my chicken seasoned). I didn't measure out cream cheese (I used the neufachtuel [spl?] stuff) or chutney, just mixed jerk and cheese till it looked lightly seasoned and spread a small spoonful of chutney around for a light coating (I took another reviewers advice and went light on the chutney). Mixed greens instead of lettuce and I used wheat tortillas (taco size)...I think that's all the alteration I did. Oh - just a note, there were two varieties of mango chutney at the store, sweet & spicy and spicy - I bought sweet and spicy - heat was mild (like jerk can be) but very flavorful.

Anyway - fantastic! Great combination of flavors, light but filling. Will definitely be making this again.

MY REVIEW

These were good and definitely quick; however, I thought that the taste of the mango chutney overpowered the flavor of the jerk seasoning. I may try leaving it off next time, but that may make them too dry. My picky husband liked them. Good with sweet potato chips and Carrot Pineapple Slaw (Cooking Light).
