Happy New Year to all of you!  I love the beginning of the year, it always feels a fresh new start, a clean slate if you will, and year full of promise ahead!

One thing I always focus on in January (after all of the indulging I do in December) is ensuring I include more fresh choices, leaner proteins and healthier sauces and dressings in my meals.  Don’t get me wrong, I definitely still indulge every now and then, even in January, but I find that it is a time I try to be more balanced.

While I do try to have a good fresh start, I do also love to continue to eat my favorites so I like to put a nice fresh spin on them.  One thing I love to eat for lunch is a good chicken salad wrap.

Chicken salad is something that reminds me of being a kid as it’s something we always used to eat for lunch. The version we used to eat was chicken loaded with mayonnaise and a little bit of celery and green onion…  and we know that mayonnaise (while delicious) isn’t maybe the best base for a meal.

This easy recipe replaces the mayonnaise with a delicious base of avocado, Greek yogurt and light ranch dressing.  You can use any kind of ranch dressing, I used homemade since I always have a batch of my light Buttermilk Ranch dressing in the fridge.

Keeping with the theme of a lightened up chicken salad, I love to wrap these in light Flatout flatbread because they have only 90 calories each and are high in both protein and fiber (keeping my belly happy and full).  I then layer in my favorite veggies like lettuce and tomatoes…  but I’ve also added shredded carrots, alfalfa sprouts, thinly sliced cucumbers and slivers of red onion.

In fact, this January, I’ve been enjoying a LOT of meals on the light Flatout flatbreads because they’re low cal and totally satisfying.. you can stuff them with everything from turkey taco meat to cream cheese and veggies (find more Flatout recipe ideas here).

They’re also great spritzed with olive oil, sprinkled with garlic salt and baked into a low cal cracker to serve with your favorite lunch meal or as a snack. You can find Flatout in your area here.

Ok back to this Avocado Ranch Chicken Salad Wrap… you’ll definitely want to add this to your menu.  It’s the perfect way to enjoy leftover chicken (or turkey), quick and easy to make and can be prepared ahead of time.  The filling will last about 3 days in the fridge.

We serve it with a fresh fruit salad for the perfect light dinner or lunch.

  1. Perfect little wraps and I love that you put avocado in them :)

  2. I really like allvthe resapeice that are on here,and the instrutions are easy to follow.

  3. Could these wraps be assembled the night before or will the wrap get soggy? My husband works at 5 a.m. and has his lunch break at 9 a.m. I try to put his lunch together the night before.

    • It would probably get soggy because of the dressing. You could put that aside in a container, and then it could be spread in the wrap when it’s time for lunch.

    • brush the flat bread with a bit of oil to seal it then top with everything else to prevent it from getting soggy. old restaurant trick

  4. They look delicious! How many calories are these wraps?

  5. Thanks! These recipes look delish!!!

  6. Although three Greek yogurt sounds wonderful I currently don’t have any on hand but want to make this for lunch. Is there something else I could substitute for it?

    • You could use plain yogurt or a little bit of sour cream. You’re mainly looking for the right consistency so even extra avocado, ranch or mayonnaise would work.

  7. How long does this salad last in the fridge for? I work nightshifts and normally bunch them together, so I try too look for things I can prep a little in advance.

  8. So yummy!! Thanks for the recipe!! I really enjoy (I’m eating now as I write) it. I think my baby enjoys it too (I’m pregnant)! Thank you!

  9. If you mix the avocado with the dressing the night before will it turn brown?

  10. I was just wondering if you can freeze this?
