Chicken and Avocado Wraps

Wraps can be satisfying, healthy and so fresh tasting. This chicken & avocado wrap has an added tang from the pickled sugar snap peas – something a bit more interesting than your ordinary dill pickle and the snap peas are so pretty when you slice them lengthwise, right down the middle. Making wraps is a good idea for scavenging through your refrigerator and mixing together those last bits of ingredients which need to be rescued quickly before spoiling.  Get creative because all types of ingredients can be included into a delicious wrap.
This chicken wrap includes slices of creamy avocado and leaves of soft butter lettuce (also called bib or boston lettuce)  which pair nicely with the crisp red onion and crunchy Penang nut & spice mix. The Asian flavors of peanuts and sesame seeds adds such a great dimension to this wrap. Serve with a side of fresh fruit or chips and you have a perfect and flavorful lunch!

Chicken and Avocado Wraps

Yield: 4 wraps


  • Penang nut & spice mix
  • 4 wraps, or tortillas
  • roast chicken
  • 1 avocado, ripe
  • 4 full leaves butter lettuce
  • pickled sugar snap peas (recipe here)
  • 2 roma tomatoes
  • tahini dressing (recipe here)
  • red onion, ¼ small, sliced thin
  • sprinkle of sea salt


  1. Shred and then separate enough roast chicken for 4 wraps; I like to keep the chunks a bit large. Slice ¼ of a small red onion and set aside. Slice the pickled sugar snap peas in half, lengthwise. Cut the avocado in half (lengthwise), peel away the skin, and cut into good sized slices. Cut the tomatoes into thick slices. Tear each butter lettuce leaf into 2-3 pieces.
  2. Take a wrap and layer each ingredient, beginning with the lettuce. To finish, drizzle tahini dressing down the center of the wrap, sprinkle generously with Penang nut & spice mix and finally sprinkle with a bit of sea salt.
  3. Wrap it tightly and secure with a toothpick or better yet, tie it together with parchment paper and finish with bakers twine. Repeat for the other 3 wraps and serve with fresh fruit or chips on the side.
