    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 5
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee plain Greek yogurt
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee bottled ranch salad dressing
    1 ½ c. Hy-Vee rotisserie chicken breast, chopped
    ⅓ c. celery, chopped
    2 tbsp. red bell pepper, finely chopped
    1 green onion, finely chopped
    5 Hy-Vee burrito-size flour tortillas
    Desired decorations, such as: radish slices, yellow bell pepper strips, Hy-Vee Cheddar cheese slices, avocado slices, Roma tomato strips, Hy-Vee bottled ranch salad dressing, honeydew melon slices and Hy-Vee Swiss cheese slices

    Things To Grab

    • Medium bowl
    • Cookie cutters


    1. Stir together yogurt and ranch salad dressing. Stir in chicken, celery, bell pepper, and green onion for chicken salad.

    2. Place a tortilla on a work surface. Trim one end to get a straight bottom edge for the rocket; discard trim. For top of rocket, cut tortilla into a point shape; reserve trimmings.

    3. Spoon 1/4 cup chicken salad onto right side, just below center of tortilla. Fold right edge of tortilla over filling; roll tortilla to form rocket shape. Cut fins out of reserved trimmings; place on the sides of the rocket. To decorate, add radish slice windows and pepper strip band on the rocket and Cheddar cutouts on the fins. Place avocado slices, some of remaining chicken salad, and tomato strips beneath rocket for flames. Pipe ranch dressing smoke trails below flames.

    4. Repeat to make four more rocket burritos. Decorate around each rocket with honeydew melon star cutouts, Swiss cheese moon, and piped dots of ranch dressing.
