Avocado Buffalo Chicken Wraps are a spicy buffalo chicken salad packed with lots of vegetables and made with avocado and Greek yogurt instead of mayo. Enjoyed warm or chilled, this wrap is healthy, quick and easy ~ perfect for a weeknight!
Avocado Buffalo Chicken Wraps put a fun and unique twist on your everyday chicken salad. Shredded chicken, drenched in a light, seasoned buffalo sauce, spices things up, while an avocado and Greek yogurt mixture replaces the mayo. For the vegetables, I used shredded carrots and chopped broccoli (I’m not a fan of celery, but if you are, some chopped celery would be a tasty addition as well). A little blue cheese crumble would be an excellent topping as well.
For this recipe, I used poached chicken. You can easily use shredded rotisserie chicken and skip to step 2. While I made the Avocado Buffalo Chicken Salad into a wrap, it is excellent as a sandwich, stuffed in a pita, or whatever your favorite preparation.
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
- 1/2 cup hot sauce (I use Frank's)
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 cup shredded carrots
- 1 cup chopped cooked broccoli florets
- 1 avocado
- 1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
- 4 tortillas
- Place chicken in a large sauce pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil; then cover and simmer until no longer pink in the middle (about 10 to 15 minutes). Transfer to a bowl
- Meanwhile, combine hot sauce, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. Pour over warm chicken and then shred using two forks.
- Combine carrots and broccoli.
- In a small bowl, mash avocado and then combine with yogurt and 1 tablespoon lemon juice.
- Top each tortilla with 1/4 avocado mixture, 1/4 carrot broccoli mixture and 1/4 buffalo chicken. Roll up, slice in half and serve!
I like to layer my wraps, but if desired, you can combine the buffalo chicken, avocado mixture and carrots/broccoli into a 'chicken salad' and then fill tortillas, pitas, bread or whatever you're using.
