This Chipotle Chicken Wrap is a delicious and easy way to make a restaurant-style chicken wrap at home. This lunch-perfect wrap has chicken, tomato, and avocado with some spice from the chipotle mayonnaise!
This is a great little recipe for lunch or a quick dinner on a busy day. I like my Chipotle Chicken Wrap on the milder side. But I also share some tips you can use if you like a spicy chicken sandwich.
Why This Recipe Works
LEFTOVERS - This is a great recipe to use up leftover chicken. To make these simple wraps, you use grilled chicken breasts, cooked chicken, rotisserie chicken, or fried chicken.
INGREDIENTS - Except for the chipotle mayo, you'll have everything already in your fridge and pantry. You can make your own Chipotle Mayo or use a store-bought version if tight on time.
Please check the recipe card below for a detailed, printable ingredient list.
CHICKEN - Use your favorite kind of chicken. Grilled, cooked, steamed, or fried chicken works! Simply chop it into bite-sized pieces.
TOMATO - Anything goes, Roma tomato, cherry or grape tomatoes, or my recent favorite Trader Joe's kumato tomatoes.
AVOCADO - This is a great recipe to use up leftover avocado slices. If
LETTUCE - I like romaine lettuce best. But you can also use iceberg, green leaf, or butterhead lettuce.
CHIPOTLE MAYO - You can make your own with chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, mayonnaise, lime juice, and honey. If you are pressed for time, pick up a bottle of chipotle mayonnaise from the grocery store.
WRAP - This is a very accommodating recipe. You can choose whichever wrap you like best. A classic flour tortilla wrap, whole wheat wrap, or tomato basil wrap all work well.
If possible, I will try to find an extra large wrap (10-12 inches). My local supermarket doesn't carry that, so I usually end up using a 9" wrap. It just means my wraps are a little smaller.
BACON - Back in my restaurant days, adding crispy bacon was one of the top substitutions, and for good reason. It's delicious.
ONIONS - Red onions can add a bit of crunch.
PEPPERS - Red bell pepper is another ingredient you might like to add. Instead of "just" using tomatoes, you can make it using half tomatoes and half red peppers. If you like things extra spicy, you can add some diced jalapeno pepper.
CILANTRO - Fresh cilantro complements to chipotle flavor.
How To Make This Recipe
- Combine the diced chicken, tomato, avocado, and lettuce in a large bowl. Add 2-3 tablespoons of chipotle mayo and toss to combine.
- Use about half a cup of the chicken mixture and place it on the center of each tortilla.
- Roll tight and serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge.
TIP: Warm the wrap on the stove or the microwave for a few seconds. This will make it easier to roll the wrap without cracks.
What To Serve With A Chicken Wrap
Of course, French Fries are a classic side dish with this wrap. You can also serve it with sweet potato fries, potato wedges, or waffle fries.
You can prepare the wrap and store it in the fridge until you're ready to eat later in the day. If you have leftovers, I recommend covering the wraps in plastic and storing them in an airtight container overnight.
You can store the Chipotle Chicken Wraps in the fridge for 1-2 days.
