Hump Day Chicken Salad Wrap

Do you ever wake up in the morning and all you can think about is food? I know it happens to me more often than not. I think know sometimes I go to bed and dream about what I am going to make for lunch or dinner the next day. What can I say? I am a little obsessed with food and dreaming of ways to prepare it. I sometimes find my mind wandering towards what could be the perfect meal. Today, the wandering led me to a chicken salad wrap.

If you know me well, then you know chicken is not one of my favorite proteins. I do make exceptions sometimes. I have been known to indulge in a little barbecue drumstick from time to time. I can say if I do eat the bird I always go for the dark meat. I find it to have the most flavor and moisture. I think I drooled a little just thinking about it.

The other day I roasted a chicken and it was delicious but I had a lot leftover. I decided the perfect way to use the leftovers would be in a chicken salad but not on bread but in my favorite spinach wrap. I can tell you it hit the spot and satisfied my hunger. I did not even feel guilty because it was so good.

Chicken Salad Wrap


1 lb of diced chicken white and dark meat
6 oz of plain Greek yogurt
1 cucumber seeded and diced
1 stalk celery diced
1/2 onion diced
1 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp paprika
salt and pepper to taste
your favorite tortilla to wrap it in

Directions combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until well blended. You may need to add more Greek yogurt depending on how moist you want your mix.

 Let it sit for a couple of hours in the refrigerator until the flavors meld together.
Wrap in your favorite tortilla.

Add cheese and lettuce if desired. Enjoy
This is definitely easy and delicious. Next time you have a want or desire for something filling for lunch give this a try. You will not regret it. I hope you are having a great day!
