I love a good chicken salad wrap. It makes lunch so much more enjoyable than a boring sandwich. Or a light dinner.
Recently, I had the most amazing wrap at a cafe (go figure, right?) and it was so good, I just had to recreate the recipe at home. It took a little experimenting but I finally found the perfect combination of ingredients.
Here’s my new Cranberry Chicken Salad Wrap recipe and is it ever delicious!
This Cranberry Chicken Salad Wrap recipe has chicken, slivered almonds, celery, and dried cranberries for added flavor. It’s quick and easy to prepare, making it a delicious way to enjoy a healthy, filling lunch.
I make a batch every week and store the chicken salad in the fridge where it’s easy for both my husband and myself to make a delicious lunch whenever we need to.
When you have good food readily available, it’s much easier to make healthy eating choices.
This Cranberry Chicken Salad Wrap recipe is perfect as I work toward eating healthier and feeding my family more protein-filled, nutritious meals.
For me, It’s not just about “healthy” foods, but also about knowing where that food came from. NatureRaised Farms food offers delicious, all-natural chicken that is minimally processed with no artificial ingredients added. Their farmers never give their chickens any hormones, steroids, or antibiotics.
I don’t know about you, but it seems like every time I turn around, I’m hearing about more chemicals, preservatives and even more scary things like hormones and stuff added to our food. So I found this brand quite refreshing to read about.
NatureRaised Farms brand works with dedicated family farmers. And their animals are treated humanely; chickens are cage-free and there are no animal proteins used ever. I’ve heard horror stories about the way some major poultry companies care for their animals so I’m happy to support a company that is humane.
And doesn’t that all translate into better-tasting food for us? Mmmmmm! I’m happy that we have this great well-balanced choice for our families.
In honor of delicious, truly natural chicken, I’m happy to share my yummy recipe for Cranberry Chicken Salad Wrap with you.
What You’ll to Make Cranberry Chicken Salad Wraps:
2 chicken breasts (about 1 pound), cooked and shredded
1/2 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup slivered almonds
about 1 cup of mayonnaise (use more or less than this recommended amount to your taste)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
6 whole wheat tortilla wraps*
*or serve on a bed of lettuce for a gluten-free, even healthier lunch!
Shred or chop the cooked chicken breast and put into a large bowl.
Add the dried cranberries, celery, and slivered almonds and toss together.
Add the mayonnaise and lemon juice and mix until well combined. You may want to add more or less mayo, depending on your taste.
Spoon some of the cranberry chicken mixture into your whole wheat tortilla wraps…

Store leftover chicken salad in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Don’t make the wraps until you are ready to eat it, as you don’t want a soggy tortilla shell.
