Healthy Chicken Wraps Recipes

  • Mexican Chicken Quinoa Salad Wrap: This Mexican-style wrap is filled with flavor, texture, protein and fresh ingredients. Mix up the black beans, corn, tomatoes, chicken, quinoa and greens in advance to make it an easy to prepare meal. Just pile high and top with fresh avocado and you’re good to go. (via Spices in My DNA)
  • Mango Chicken Lettuce Wrap: Whipping up your own pan of mango chicken is probably good enough for a meal, but why not spoon it into a lettuce wrap and make one delicious lunch? (via Britnell)
  • Grilled Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken Wrap: Time to fire up the grill (or the stove) for these bad boys. The sweetness of the pineapple pairs perfectly with the tangy sauce. Top it off with lettuce, tomato, red onion or nothing at all. It’s good either way. (via Creme de la Crumb)
  • California Chicken Club Wrap: Cali got it right on this combination of shredded chicken, bacon, tomato and avocado. This recipe takes it to another level with fresh mango and a squeeze of lime juice for extra flavor. (via Taste and Tell)
  • Buffalo Chicken Wrap: Buffalo chicken wings aren’t known to be super healthy, but this recipe makes them much more diet-friendly. Use baked chicken for an even healthier option. (via Sugar Dish Me)

 

Healthy Turkey Wraps

 

Healthy Turkey Wraps Recipes

  • Buffalo Turkey Lettuce Wrap: Healthy eating is easy with these flavor-packed buffalo wraps. Even better than gameday wings, they’re loaded up with ground turkey, onion, carrot and celery mixed with none other than Frank’s Hot Sauce. Drizzle on your blue cheese or ranch or opt for blue cheese crumbles – make it as spicy and cheesy as you want. (via The Girl Who Ate Everything)
  • Apple Cheddar Turkey Wrap: Turkey meets apple and cheese again, only this time with cheddar. Wrap it up with a handful of fresh lettuce and a drizzle of the honey-vinegar sauce for a tasty and balanced lunch. (via Emily Bites)
  • Turkey Taco Lettuce Wrap: Taco Tuesday just got even better. Load ‘em up however you want with all your favorite toppings. Pica de gallo, avocado and a sprinkle of cilantro sound heavenly to me. (via Cooking Classy)
  • Thai Turkey Brown Rice Lettuce Wraps: Mix your favorite Thai flavors together in a healthy lettuce wrap and top with fresh cilantro, carrots and crunchy peanuts to tie together the lime, ginger, soy and red chili garlic sauce that makes this wrap a favorite. (via A Cedar Spoon)
  • Turkey Meatball Lettuce Wrap: Meatballs may be soft, but everything else in this wrap — carrots and crisp lettuce leaves — give it a nice, wrap-worthy crunch. (via Delish)
  • Creamy Avocado Turkey Wrap: Something seriously simple can taste seriously good: for example, Greek yogurt, avocado and garlic combine to make the tasty dressing for this turkey-based wrap. (via Alida’s Kitchen)
  • Viva Fiesta Turkey Wrap: The creator of this wrap suggests spreading a very light layer of cream cheese between the wrap and your ingredients so the bread isn’t soggy by lunchtime. If you can hold off that long to start this fiesta. (via Lone Star Nutrition)
  • Turkey Reuben Wrap: This healthy version of a classic sandwich features lean turkey instead of corned beef. I’m not sure why we didn’t make the switch earlier. (via Delish)

 

Healthy Protein Wraps with Meat

  • Easy BLTA Wrap: Avocado makes anything better, including the classic B.L.T. sandwich. But even better than that? A light wrap instead of bread to let the flavors shine through. (via Yummy Healthy Easy)
  • Steak and Guacamole Wrap: Shiitake mushrooms are the perfect complement to a lean, seasoned steak wrap topped with fresh guac. Yogurt subs the sour cream to make this even lighter. (via Jamie Oliver)
  • Broccoli Salad Wrap: Dress your bacon slices with broccoli slaw, apple slices, pecan pieces and dried cranberries. A drizzle of poppyseed dressing tops it all off. (via Poet in the Pantry)
  • Tandoori Steak Wrap: It’s not every day you combine steak and grapefruit – in fact, we can presume you haven’t tried the combination before. Once you taste this Indian-inspired wrap, though, you’ll probably wonder why it’s taken you this long. (via Aarti Sequeira)
  • Philly Cheese Steak Wrap: When it comes to iconic sandwiches, the Philly Cheesesteak is up there. This wrap is a lighter version of the typically indulgent meal that still packs all the flavor. (via Maebells)
  • Bahn Mi Lettuce Wrap: This lengthy recipe might be daunting to look at, but the actual prep isn’t so bad. You can leave the vegetables to pickle while you brown the pork, for example. (via Cooking For Keeps)

 

Healthy Seafood Wraps

  • Mexican Chopped Tuna Salad Wrap: I’m convinced you can add “Mexican” to anything and it automatically sounds better. This is no exception. Tuna is mixed with all the typical Mexican ingredients – bell pepper, black beans, corn, tomatoes, cilantro and avocado – for an easy and tasty tuna salad that’s good with or without the wrap. (via Kim’s Cravings)
  • Spicy Garlic Shrimp Wrap: The spicy garlic shrimp are seasoned with caramelized onions, chipotle peppers in adobo, garlic and salt. In case your mouth wasn’t already watering, it’s then topped with red onion, tomato, cucumber, lettuce and tzatziki sauce take it over the edge and right into a tasty flatbread wrap. (via Unrefined RD)
  • Spicy Tuna Wrap: It’s pretty much a giant spicy tuna roll, except easier to make and eat and without the seaweed. My sushi addiction just got easier to beat. (via Goodie Godmother)
  • Tuna Salad Wrap: Tuna salad has never sounded so good. Mix plain Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, walnuts, raisins, and seasonings into fresh or canned tuna and wrap with a handful of spinach leaves. (via The Healthy Foodie)
  • Salmon Salad Wrap: After grilling salmon, turn your leftovers into a tasty, Greek yogurt-based salad to fill your wrap. (via eHow)
  • Curried Shrimp Lettuce Wrap: A crisp, green lettuce leaf holds it all and makes this recipe low-carb. You won’t even notice the bread’s missing when you bite into the sautéed shrimp sweetened by yogurt sauce. (via Eating Well)
  • Salmon Hummus Wrap: Only four ingredients are required to make this wrap. In fact, its creator said she hesitated in sharing the recipe because it’s so simple, but decided it was too good to keep to herself. (via Hungry Hobby)
  • Tuna Nicoise Lettuce Wrap: Believe it or not, a butter or iceberg lettuce leaf is strong enough to hold it all: fingerling potatoes, green beans, cherry tomatoes and, of course, fish. You can also substitute salmon for tuna if you wish. (via Cat Cora for Shape)

 

Healthy Vegetarian Wraps and Vegan Wraps

  • Avocado Caprese Wrap: These could easily become a go-to lunch. The avocado and fresh mozzarella fill you up and the tomato, basil and balsamic vinegar deliver a punch of flavor. (via Foodie Crush)
  • Spinach Avocado Egg Wrap: Eggs aren’t just for breakfast, although this wrap is so good it may replace your avocado toast. Make your hardboiled eggs ahead of time to prep or fill it with scrambled eggs and add tomatoes if you’d prefer. The world is your wrap. (via Today’s Frugal Mom)
  • Grilled Zucchini Hummus Wrap: Grilled zucchini is paired with hummus, spinach, red onion, fresh tomatoes and cheese for a hearty wrap that will warm and fill your belly. (via Maebells)
