How to make avocado chicken salad wraps
Quick and healthy lunches are a must during the work week. Typically, when cooking chicken I make extra to use for lunches throughout the week. And that extra chicken is perfect to use in this chicken salad wrap recipe.
To make this recipe, you’ll need celery, grapes, onion, chicken, avocado, water chestnuts, and lemon juice.
Start by prepping your ingredients. If you don’t have any leftover chicken on hand, baking a few chicken breast with basic seasoning (pepper, salt and any other favorites) will do the trick.
After your ingredients are chopped and ready to go, start by adding the avocado and lemon juice to a large bowl, stir to soften and mash.
Then add all the rest of the ingredients and stir until combined.
How to serve chicken salad
You have a few options for serving the avocado chicken salad. A few of my favorites:
- whole wheat wrap
- lettuce wrap
- over a salad
- whole grain bread
- or just grab a fork and dig in
This recipe will last for a few days in an air tight container. I know you may be wondering how the avocado will hold up without becoming an unappetizing brown.
The secret to slowing down the oxidation process that causes the avocado to brown is adding vitamin C or ascorbic acid. In this recipe, that is coming from the lemon juice.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which means it combats the oxidation process that starts when avocado is exposed to the oxygen in the air.Print
