Cajun Chicken Avocado Salad Wrap
This avocado chicken salad recipe is not only healthy but absolutely delicious too! If you were looking for avocado recipes that are packed with protein and healthy fats, look no further. This is also a great low carb option if you omit the tortilla wrap. While you can definitely use left over rotisserie chicken (which I love to do for chicken salad in general), here I want to use cajun chicken for a burst of flavor and spices.
Just remember because this is an avocado salad based meal, the avocado can easily discolor if you don’t store it the right way. This makes this particular dish difficult to keep for too long in the fridge, but on the bright side it is tasty enough to rarely have left overs. You can also turn this into multi-flavored salad recipes by adding red bell pepper or cilantro to the mix. If you don’t want to use tortilla wraps, you can also get pita pockets for a different construction. When choosing your avocado, you want them to be soft but not over-ripe, which means you’ll have to keep an eye on them every day if you get them at the store unripe. The cajun chicken can actually be cut into strips and stored in your freezer so that you don’t have it just for this recipe, but can use it for a lot of other things too. It’s great as an ingredient for dishes that call for chicken, and making a lot at a time can help cut down on prep time for other things.

- 1 large whole wheat tortilla
- Substitute: low-calorie wheat flatbread; pita bread; Ezekiel living bread
- 4oz cooked cajun chicken breast, chopped
- 1 1/2 cups chopped lettuce (I used Romaine)
- 1/2 beefsteak tomato, chopped
- 1/3 cup cucumber, chopped
- 1/2 medium avocado, chopped
- 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
- sea salt & pepper to taste
Place all the ingredients for the salad in a large bowl and mix together using a spatula.
Warm the whole wheat tortilla in the microwave for 15 seconds, then place it on a clean surface. This will make the tortilla easy to manage.
Add the salad to the center of the tortilla, fold in the sides, and from one end of the burrito, begin to roll it closed. Use your hands to pack the salad tightly in as you roll the tortilla.
Slice it down the middle and enjoy!
