California Chicken Wraps Recipe – Easy Weeknight Dinner

Here’s the promised recipe for the second way my family uses avocados (after guac).  I learned this wrap at a Pampered Chef party, and we looooove it around here.  I always feel like I’m at a good restaurant when I serve them.  So easy, so yummy.

Recipe type: Dinners
Ingredients
  • Tortillas (whole wheat or homemade)
  • Mashed or sliced avocado (see here for a tutorial on how to cut)
  • Cooked shredded chicken
  • Sliced cucumbers
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Sliced red onion
  • Homemade ranch dressing (+ cut cucumbers, optional)
  • Shredded cheese
  • Lettuce
Instructions
  1. Chop some cucumber and cover with ranch dressing;
  2. Stir and let sit while you cut everything else.
  3. Cook chicken if necessary and slice vegetables.
  4. Salt chicken and add a little Italian seasoning if you have it.
  5. Assemble wraps in order given.
  6. Roll tightly and grill on a George Foreman or in a very hot pan (dry, no Teflon), seam side down first.
  7. Turn once if in pan.
  8. Remove when tortillas are lightly browned.
Notes
Cost:  less than $1 per wrap; varies depending on what kind of chicken and tortillas you buy.  Can be made as a grilled sandwich on whole wheat bread, too. Super foods:  1 plus 3 honorable mentions (use herbed plain yogurt instead of ranch and add some spinach leaves to make 3 super foods!)

Pile onto a homemade tortilla. I like them with mustard!

Tips and Transformations:

  • We like it with plain ranch and mustard, because hubby doesn’t like cucumbers.
  • I almost always serve it with a side of Chicken Rice-a-Roni, homemade version.
  • Add bacon or pepperoni and hot pepper for an Italian twist.
  • Use Caesar dressing for something different
  • Chicken is best stir fried or leftover roasted chicken, BUT if you want to use your chicken from making stock, I would recommend sautéing it in olive oil first for flavor.

    hi there

    thank you so much for your great website I have just found it. I have been looking for a cast iron grill like GF for ages but all the GF ones I can find are non stick-do you know the type of yours?

    thanks so much

    Lara,
    Mine is just the standard George – non stick. I know non-stick isn’t great, but it doesn’t get over 500F, so it’s much more safe that way. Sorry! Katie
