So I’m thinking you all might still be in a sugar coma from Halloween. Yes?

The weather was pretty stinky here…it’s a good thing the candy I bought to pass out is the candy I like to eat. Oh wait, maybe that’s a bad thing!

Anyways, I know I just shared a savory dish with you earlier this week (remember this Stovetop Beef Enchilada Mac and Cheese??), but I thought you all might enjoy another lighter dinner option. And free of all sugar.

This chicken salad is my aunt’s recipe that I just LOVE. Not sure where she got it (or if she made it up herself…Aunt Sandy??yes? no?). It’s so easy to whip up a big batch and serve for lunches. Brunch. Dinner. You name it.

I love serving it on big crescents, however in an effort to eat a *little* more healthy, I thought we could have some chicken salad on a whole wheat tortilla. I like to cook extra chicken breasts during the week when making dinner. I cube them and stick them in the freezer. When it’s time to make something simple like this Chicken Salad, I take out the amount of cooked chicken I need and let it thaw. Easy peasy!

Before I share the recipe, can I ask a quick question. Is it too soon to start sharing peppermint treats? Cause I’ve got a some good ones coming to the blog soon, and I would hate to have you write mean messages to me. So, consider this a warning…holiday treats coming soon.

Not that you have to make them as early in the season as I do, but feel free to Pin them or print them for planning purposes! Or feel free to ignore them until you’re ready. Search through my archives for your favorite pumpkin dishes!

Adds a nice creamy texture. I’ve also used plain greek yogurt when there is no sour cream in the house. Works great too!

Aimee you are my savior. I was just thinking how I have to eat better (aka less cupcakes heehee) and this is a lunch I could definitely get behind! I adore chicken salad, and a wrap sounds too easy to pass up! :D

I like the idea of wrapped salad because it is very easy and comfortable to eat it, especially when you have a party and you don`t need a plenty of plates for all the guests. I`m sure that it is also very tasty.

Loooooove this, Amy. Chicken Salad is one of my favorites, but I usually spread it on toast. I love the idea of a wrap!

I was wondering are you boiling the chicken or baking it

Can you freeze this chicken salad once made?


aimee @ shugarysweets April 13, 2014 at 9:09 am

I’m not sure, I haven’t tried. But I would think no because of the mayo.
