Grilled Chicken Avocado Wrap - My Gorgeous Recipes (1)

New Year, new resolutions. And the most famous one: losing weight. I know, December was a hell of a month, too much shopping, eating and drinking. So a healthier January may sound like a good plan. Although in reality statistics show that the eating healthily doesn't really last that long around this time of the year. Oh well, at least we try.

But you know what, quick healthy recipes can be truly delicious and super easy to make. Take this wrap, it has got the healthiest stuff you can ask for:

  • avocados, known for the countless health benefits
  • spinach, a super leaf loaded with vitamins and minerals
  • chicken, an easy and light meat that can safely be consumed if you are on a diet.

Chicken can be replaced with any lean meat, like turkey. I have tried it in this Healthy leftover turkey wraps with cranberry sauceand it was really delicious. Same goes for leftover beef, lamb or pulled pork.

Ingredients needed to make a chicken avocado wrap

  • chicken breast - it's very easy to cook, and quick too
  • avocado - make sure it's just ripe, unripe avocado is too hard and tasteless
  • fresh baby spinach - or you can use any salad leaves
  • sour cream - for spreading on the wraps
  • Cheddar cheese - or any other hard cheese
  • paprika- adds a nice colour and taste
  • granulated garlic
  • salt & ground black pepper
  • vegetable oil
  • tortilla wraps

Easy swaps

This wrap is so easy to make, and it can be tweaked to your own liking:

  • grilled chicken can be swapped for leftover chicken - especially if you have any leftovers from your Spatchco*ck Chicken or Whole Roasted Chicken. It can also be swapped for any other leftover meat.
  • sour cream can be replaced with creme fraiche or yogurt
  • spinach can be replaced with green salad
  • wholemeal tortilla wraps can be swapped for white flour or corn tortilla wraps

Step-by-step instructions and photos

  • To cook the chicken, cut the chicken breasts into strips, add them to a bag together with the salt, pepper, paprika, granulated garlic and oil.
  • Give the bag a good shake so that the chicken can be well coated.
  • Heat up a grill pan, add the chicken and cook on both sides until done, about 3 minutes on each side.
  • Peel and slice the avocado, then squeeze the lemon juice over.
  • Transfer the chicken to a plate, warm up the tortilla wraps for a few seconds on each side, so the folding can be done easier.
  • Spread the sour cream on one side of the wrap, sprinkle the grated cheese over, then add the chicken, spinach and avocado.
  • Wrap tightly and serve immediately.

Recipe FAQs

How do you keep avocados from browning?

Avocados, as healthy and delicious as they are, tend to brown very quickly. So, in order to keep them fresh for longer, here is a trick. Once you peel and cut the avocados, squeeze some lemon juice over the cut slices, that will prevent them from browning. Be generous with the amount of lemon juice, they will taste even better.

How many calories are in a chicken avocado wrap?

Only 342! And trust me, this wrap will keep you fuller for quite a long time, so you won't feel like snacking shortly after you had your meal. And it's the perfect meal on the go, great as a working lunch, picnic food, or just a light dinner.

    Oh woah, I just made these and they are so yummy! Had to substitute baby spinach with baby kale, because the supermarket was out of spinach. Only downside is...I only made one per person :')

    Your wrap looks toasted on the outside. Is it my imagination? I was thinking of toasting mine but wasn't sure the best method for doing so.

    • Daniela Anderson

      Hi Chrisana, thank you for your comment! I have placed the tortilla wraps on a hot grill pan for a about 20-30 seconds on each side just to get them warm and make the folding easier. They also get a very nice taste from it. Let me know if that helps!

    Are they good not served immediately?

    • Daniela Anderson

      Hi Abi! Thank you for your comment. They are good served later on too, altough l like eating the avocado fresh, using lemon helps it keep it green and fresh for longer, but l would not leave it for too many hours though, just in case the taste is not as good.

    I think wraps are the greatest. Fill them with delicious stuff and you're good to go. And your stuffing looks fantastic. I'm thinking how good it would be for lunch tomorrow. We have chicken thawing out. 🙂

    Hi There! Love this recipe! Does one chicken breast do 3 servings?

    Reply

    • Daniela Anderson

      Hi! Thank you for your comment! Yes, one chicken breast is fine, given that we use other ingredients too and you can't add too much to a tortilla wrap, it won't wrap well anymore. Plus now it also depends on the side of the chicken breast, some shops sell rather big ones, so the amounts are always approximate.

    This became my #1 favorite wrap when I first found this recipe 5years ago. Quick and easy to prepare, healthy, and oh so delicious. There is no need for yogurt, bacon, baslamic vinegar or any of the other things you find in all the other chicken avocado wrap recipes. With these four ingredients Tightly wrapped with a low carb tortilla, my life is complete!
