Chicken Salad Avocado Wrap

Share

My husband just read this post and said, "what is it, Leftovers Week"? Sometimes daddies just don't understand the brilliance of turning one meal into four. If you've been tuning in the past few days, you know I make a Chicken in the Crock Pot at least once a week for my family. Without fail, we always have chicken left over, which is a huge bonus for any busy mom. Sometimes I use it to make Mac, Chicken and Cheese Bites or Mexican Enchiladas, but lately I started preparing this chicken salad, and the kids just love to eat it. With just a few slices of vitamin-packed avocado along with some chopped pickles for crunch and a slightly salty flavor, this Chicken Salad Wrap is not only easy to make, but also a great use for cooked chicken. Let's hear it for Leftovers Week!

    YUM! I have made this several times. Tonight I ran out of lemon juice and had to substitute lime juice instead. Still delicious.

    What i don’t understood is in reality how you’re now not actually much more well-liked than you might be now. You are so intelligent. You recognize thus considerably in relation to this subject, made me in my opinion imagine it from a lot of varied angles. Its like women and men are not involved until it?s something to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs excellent. Always maintain it up!

    Can you wrap these individual &freeze them?

      Unfortunately, avocado does not freeze very well in general. The texture changes. You can keep these in the fridge for up to 4 days though.

    could you use plain greek yogurt in place of the mayo? I am not a pig fan of mayo and have gotten on a greek yogurt kick lately? Thanks!

      I substituted plain greek yogurt for the mayo, my 14 month old son gobbled his wrap up. Best of all my husband and I liked the recipe as well. The pickle is a nice different twist to the chicken salad and it does flavor up very nice in the fridge – better the second day.

    just substitute with veganaise! my DD is egg allergic with other life threatening food allergies, we love this site, and do a lot of substituting. :)

    Please note that this recipe should not be posted in “egg free.” I went to the egg-free category to find recipes for my egg-allergic son, but the first recipe posted contains mayonnaise. Most egg-allergic kids cannot eat mayo.

      So sorry about that, your right. Do you know about veganaise? We use veganaise in our home and are big fans. This recipe can also be replaced with that. Thank you for the comment!

      You’ll be happy to know there is egg-free mayonnaise available. Trader Joe’s Reduced Fat Mayonnaise is egg-free. If there is not a Trader Joe’s near you, you can find a similar product at Whole Foods or other natural food stores.

    Great recipe. I too purchase a organic whole chicken, roast in the oven and pull it apart and bag it up for just such meals. Since a pasteurized chicken is expensive we don’t eat it for one meal we eat over a couple of weeks in various meals.

    This is a great site even if my youngest is 12.
