Deluxe Chicken Salad Wraps. Oh boy! These are so delicious. The filling is made up of left over roast chicken, creamy mayonnaise and herbed cream cheese and a good measure of crispy salad items. Oh… and let’s not forget the sneaky chopped bacon thrown in for extra measure!
These wraps are incredibly easy to make, and would be perfect for party food, game days, lunches and so on. You can make these ahead, either entirely, or just make up the filling and refrigerate until you’re ready for serving. They don’t take long at all to assemble. You can cut them in to small pieces if serving for a party, or simply cut each wrap in half and have yourself for lunch!
For the ingredients, feel free to ‘eyeball’ the measures to suit how you want the filling to taste. You do need the creaminess of the mayonnaise and cream cheese to act as a binder for the filling, so make sure you add enough so it will all hold together.
Use whatever salad items you like the most. You could make up a variety of wraps if serving for a party, perhaps some chicken or turkey ones, and some salmon ones. Really, this recipe is as flexible as your imagination will allow!
As for the chicken, I’ve used left over roast chicken, but you can use rotisserie chicken, or indeed turkey from your left over Thanksgiving or Christmas meal.
So feel free to play around with the flavours and enjoy!
