I always make sure to incorporate more fresh options, Chicken Salad Wrap leaner proteins, and healthier sauces and dressings in my meals following a vacation (after all of the indulging I do).
Don’t get me wrong, I still occasionally indulge, but I find that I strive to be more balanced at those times.
While I do make an effort to start fresh, I also enjoy continuing to eat my favorites, so I like to give them a great new twist. A tasty chicken salad wrap is one lunchtime food that I enjoy.
We used to always have chicken salad for lunch, which makes me go back to when I was a child.
We used to eat mayonnaise-covered chicken with a side of celery and green onions, but we now realize that mayonnaise, while tasty, may not be the finest foundation for a meal.
Replace the mayo with avocado.
In this simple recipe, avocado, Greek yogurt, and light ranch dressing serve as the mayonnaise’s delectable replacement.
Any ranch dressing will do, but because I always have a batch of my light Buttermilk Ranch dressing in the refrigerator, I used homemade ranch dressing.
I prefer to wrap them in thin Flat-out flatbread since they have only 90 calories per piece and are rich in protein and fiber, keeping with the theme of a lightened-up chicken salad (keeping my belly happy and full).
I then add my preferred vegetables, such as lettuce and tomatoes. but I’ve also included thinly sliced cucumbers, red onion, alfalfa sprouts, and carrots that have been shredded.
Wrap it with flatbread (or lettuce)
I’ve been eating a lot of meals on the low-calorie Flatout flatbread because you can stuff them with everything from cream cheese and vegetables to turkey taco meat.
They taste fantastic baked into a low-calorie cracker to go with your favorite lunch dish or as a snack. They also taste great spritzed with olive oil, dusted with garlic salt, and baked.
For leftover chicken, it’s ideal
Okay, back to this wrap with chicken salad and avocado ranch. You should include this in your menu without a doubt.
It’s the ideal method to eat leftover chicken (or turkey), is quick and simple to prepare, and can be done in advance. In the refrigerator, the filling will last for about 3 days.
For the ideal light dinner or lunch, we serve it with a fresh fruit salad.
