Chicken Salad with Avocado
Recently, I needed a quick dinner idea. Although BLT sandwiches sounded good, I only had 8 pieces of bacon for 7 people … so obviously, a traditional BLT was not gonna work. I mean, I could have had a sandwich, but what was everyone else going to eat?! 😂
Thinking outside the box a bit, but still going with the BLT idea, I came up with this salad wrap recipe. I had some leftover chicken from the night before and an avocado that needed to be used, so this was a cinch to throw together! Think chicken wrap + BLT + avocado. A match made in heaven! It’s so good and so simple to make too.
Make these chicken salad wraps for lunch or dinner, or even as a snack, any time of year, any day of the week. They’re a winner for the whole family.
There’s this saying … ”necessity is the mother of invention” … and when I needed a recipe, I invented this one! It’s dang good if I say so myself! This BLT Avocado Chicken Salad Wraps recipe is the best chicken salad recipe! Enjoy!
BLT Chicken Salad: Ingredients & Equipment
To make this chicken salad with avocado, you’ll need …
- tortillas – burrito-sized and warmed. These are your wraps, of course!
- bacon – you’ll need one or two pieces for each wrap, cooked and crumbled so you’ve got nice crunchy bits!
- chicken – cubed, shredded … plain, buffalo, ranch … however, you like it, so long as it fits into a wrap and you enjoy it. You can use chicken breasts or chicken tenderloin, or even ground chicken if that’s what you prefer.
- cherry tomatoes, celery, green onions, lettuce leaves – your veggies, plus the “LT” of the “BLT” part in this wrap. Make sure they’re all diced and quartered so they fit into the tortilla.
- avocado – pitted and chopped. The last little part of this wrap, and an ingredient you can’t leave out, in my opinion! It’s truly the icing on the cake here!
- mayonnaise, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper – these form your chicken salad “dressing” and they’re oh so good. Be sure to adjust the salt and pepper to your tastes!
NOTE: When it comes to veggies especially, you’ll want to use the freshest ingredients you can find. The chicken can be leftover, but the veggies? You’ll want the good stuff!! I know this seems like a no-brainer, but you’ll taste the difference – trust me! There’s a big gap between an OK chicken salad wrap and a spectacular one!
- bowl – to mix all your ingredients before putting them into the wrap!
Chicken Salad Wrap: FAQs
If you already have cooked chicken, just a few minutes as you combine the ingredients and wrap them up! If you don’t have cooked chicken, I’d say about a half-hour (10 minutes for prep, 20 for cooking).
About 6-8, depending on how much “stuff” you like in your wrap!
Romaine or iceberg lettuce is your best bet here!
You can leave it in the fridge for up to 6 hours – I’d wrap it in plastic wrap or something similar. But, honestly, it’s best eaten immediately! You want all those ingredients fresh!
