Our absolute favorite Chicken Salad, made in wrap form with tomatoes, avocado, and lettuce. These Chicken Salad Wraps are packed with flavor! The chicken salad portion of this wrap can be made ahead of time and stores well in the fridge for up to 4 days. Make it ahead of time for a quick lunch assembly or a great weekly meal prep option. Growing up we had two lunches more than any other meals I can remember — wraps and black bean nachos. More on nachos another day, because today we’re talking wraps. The filling for the wraps changed often — deli meat, leftover holiday ham, hummus and veggies, or chicken salad. The chicken salad-filled wraps were always my favorite. And especially when they were loaded with avocados and tomatoes! Today I’m sharing my favorite chicken salad wrap recipe loaded up in a whole wheat tortilla and packed with tomatoes and avocado. How to serve this recipe I mentioned a whole wheat tortilla, but any tortilla works, so use your favorite! I like the Flatout® flatbreads for a healthier option. If you’re looking to keep things lower-carb while still using a tortilla, check out these options. To save on calories and carbs you can omit the tortilla entirely and wrap everything in lettuce instead. Another option is to serve on crackers or apple slices The wrap can be nixed entirely in favor of a sandwich — use your favorite bread or a croissant and layer the ingredients on top. And let’s not forget that spooning the chicken salad straight out of the bowl is definitely an option. QUICK TIP Roma tomatoes are firm and smallish–larger than a cherry tomato but smaller than a regular tomato. They’re perfect for Chicken Salad Wraps because they don’t create any sogginess. If you use full-sized tomatoes, slice them in half and if they’re extra juicy, blot with a paper towel. One of the great things about this recipe is how easy it is to customize and make exactly the way you like! Below are a few ideas. Chicken Salad Wrap variations Chicken Salad Wrap with cranberries: Remove the avocado and tomato; add cranberries, thinly sliced celery, and slivered almonds or pecans. Sante Fe style: Add corn, black beans, and finely chopped cilantro to the chicken salad portion. Chicken salad with grapes: Replace the avocado and tomato with halved grapes, slivered almonds, dried cranberries, and thinly sliced celery. Chicken Salad Wrap with cheese: Feel free to add some cheese to this recipe; I’d recommend provolone or Swiss. Spicy chicken salad wrap: these sriracha tuna wraps are incredible; try replacing the tuna with shredded chicken! Preparing the chicken I LOVE using rotisserie chicken. It’s fast, flavorful, and tender! I like grabbing one from the store (or making one homemade) at the beginning of the week and then using it in recipes for the next few days. If you’re really in a time crunch, lots of stores sell pre-shredded rotisserie chicken meat. Alternatively, you can grill the chicken. Pound breasts to an even thickness and then generously salt and pepper the breasts. Drizzle oil on both sides and grill over medium-high heat (400-450 degrees F) turning once halfway through grilling, about 4-6 minutes per side (until the thickest part of the chicken registers 165 degrees F.). Transfer the chicken to a plate, cover with foil, and let rest for 5-10 minutes. Thinly slice and then chop the grilled chicken and it’s ready for this Chicken Salad Wrap. You can cook the chicken in a crockpot and shred it. Season chicken breasts generously with salt and pepper and then place in a slow cooker. Cover the breasts completely with chicken stock or broth and cook on low for 5-7 hours or high for 3-4 hours. Remove chicken, drain the liquid, and chop the cooked breasts for this recipe.
