Chicken and harvest apple wraps

0 comments

Chicken and harvest apple wraps incorporate the spicy flavors of fall in a healthy wrap. Chicken and harvest apple wraps are flavored with a harvest apple vinaigrette with a hint of cinnamon. These wraps make a delicious lunch or an easy week night meal when served with a delicious fall soup like butternut squash with ginger and nutmeg or 10-minute tomato soup.

I love wraps and I love a classic chicken salad sandwich or wrap. These chicken and harvest apple wraps are a twist on that classic chicken salad without the heavy calorie laden mayo. The light apple vinaigrette with a hint of cinnamon is a delicious dressing for any fall salad. It pairs deliciously with cooked chicken, veggies, Craisins, sliced almonds and green apple. I found this harvest apple vinaigrette by Private Collection at my local QFC (Kroger stores).

This harvest apple vinaigrette was a great fall find. I’ve enjoyed it on green salads dressed up with fall flavors like pears, apples, dried cranberries and spicy pecans. I like serving a small portion on the side with the wraps for dipping.

What you’ll need

To make this chicken and harvest apple wrap you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 2 cups cooked chicken, cubed
  • 1 small green apple, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Craisins or dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds or walnuts
  • 2 cups classic coleslaw mix (plain green cabbage and carrots shredded)
  • 1 large rib of celery, chopped
  • 1 tbsp sweet onion, diced
  • 3 tbsp harvest apple vinaigrette by Private Collection
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • burrito sized flour tortillas or wraps of your choice

Wraps are a great way to use up any left over chicken. You can use a couple of grilled chicken breasts seasoned simply with salt and pepper or one of my all time favorites ~ left over rotisserie chicken. Since the amount of seasoning and salt will vary depending on the kind of chicken you are using, once you combine all the ingredients into a bowl and dress it up taste it. Adjust the seasoning as necessary. You may need a little more salt and pepper or dressing as you prefer.

Directions

Making the wraps is very easy. Use a burrito sized flour tortilla or your favorite kind of wrap. Spoon out a 1/4 of the chicken and harvest apple salad in the middle of the tortilla. I simply fold in two opposite sides and begin to roll the wrap up. Tuck in the ends of the wrap. Slice it in half and serve. Serve with a green salad and extra dressing on the side.

  • Combine all the ingredients into a large salad bowl. Toss with 3 tbsp of harvest apple vinaigrette.
  • Taste and then adjust the salt, pepper and additional vinaigrette as needed.
  • Lay out one fourth portion in the middle of a flour tortilla. Fold in two sides of the wrap and begin rolling. Tuck in the ends of the wrap.
  • Slice the wrap in half and serve with extra dressing on the side for dipping. Repeat the process for the other three wraps.

I use a classic coleslaw mix of cabbage and carrots in this wrap for the veggies. If you don’t like cabbage no worries. You can substitute this veggie mix with mixed salad greens of your choice. It will still taste great. I love a little extra crunch from the sweet tart apple and celery. The dried cranberries add a burst of sweetness and texture as well. It is all married together with the warm notes of cinnamon in the harvest apple vinaigrette.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. Please leave me a comment below if you tried it.
