"San Antonio Chicken Wraps” are served by the popular Logan’s Roadhouse restaurant chain (originally from Tennessee, but with many Texas locations). Chicken with Southwestern sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese is wrapped in a tortilla.
“San Antonio Chicken Roll-Ups” are chicken breasts and Monterey Jack cheese and jalapeno peppers, wrapped with a piece of bacon on the ends. The recipe appears on a few websites, but, unlike “San Antonio Chicken Wraps,” it doesn’t have a large restaurant chain that serves it. Served on a Kaiser roll, this because a San Antonio chicken sandwich.
“San Antonio Chicken” appears in Diane Kennedy’s classic book The Cuisines of Mexico and adds cumin, picante sauce, cilantro, and red bell pepper.
