Chicken Salad Wrap

Chicken Salad Wrap

Cranberries and Arugula bring this familiar wrap to a whole new level of awesomeness!

Easy and fast to prepare, this salad can be done with left over chicken, turkey or even canned tuna. It's perfect for lunch or a light and quick dinner during busy week nights. 
Not to mention it can be served in any kind of bread you like and since it's pretty filling you can even eat it by itself.
For the salad in the pictures I used store bought mayo but you are welcome to try to make your own. If you're looking for homemade mayo recipes, I suggest you to take a look at this one from Delightful Repast.
For those of you who want to try this recipe, please drop me a line on Facebook and let me know what you think! I would love to receive your feedback! :)

Chicken Salad
Preparation time: 30 min
Yield: 4 Wraps

  • 300g Cooked chicken meat
  • 1 cup Shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup Chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup Dried cranberries
  • 3 tbsp Mayonnaise 
  • 2 tbsp White wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 Tortilla wraps
  • 2 Hands full of Arugula 

Chicken cooking suggestion (white meat):
To season the chicken make a paste with 1 tsp of butter, 1 tsp of dried oregano, 2 chopped basil leaves, salt and pepper. Spread this paste on the meat, under the skin. Bake with the skin on for about 25 minutes in a 350 F (175 C) preheated oven. 

For the chicken salad, start by shredding or chopping the meat. In a bowl, mix chicken, carrots, celery, cranberries, vinegar, mustard and season with salt and pepper. Then mix in the mayonnaise.

To assemble the wraps, place the tortilla on a plate, in the middle of it lay a bed of arugula and 2 or 3 spoons of the chicken salad. Tuck two sides of the tortilla in, and start rolling it. Secure the roll with a tooth pick.

Your yummy Chicken Salad Wrap is ready to be devoured!

  1. Giovanna, that wrap looks scrumptious! I would also like it with turkey, as you suggested. Thank you for linking to my homemade mayonnaise! I hope you'll try it--no worries about salmonella with my method. And with the food processor, it's a snap. I've just added arugula to my shopping list for tomorrow!

  2. Hi Jean! I really appreciate you stopping by! :) Your recipe is my new "go to" recipe for the homemade mayo, I'll never make mayo with raw eggs again.

  3. That is superb! Really love the idea and execution! What can I use instead of the white vinegar?
