Chicken Salad Wraps: Back to School Lunch Idea

Chicken Salad Wraps are a great back-to-school kids’ lunch idea. It’s back to school time and this summer our family has started to work on eating more healthy as well as working on reducing our budget.

One of our favorite lunches for back to school is Chicken Salad Wraps with almonds and grapes. This works great for the kids and for my husband to take to work. Plus, I can just eat it right out of the bowl. This is one of those recipes that seems complicated but is actually pretty quick and simple.

I like to add fruit to my chicken salad. I would usually use red grapes if I can find them with no seeds since I like to have as much color into my salad as I can, but I already had green ones, so I used them up.

You could also use cranberries.  Chicken salad can be made in so many different ways, all you need is to start with some good chicken and you can mix in what you have available in the pantry.

Sometimes I use crescents, but I found some gluten-free tortillas and thought this would be a nice change. Plus you can cut them in half and they look great. I included gluten-free tortilla crisp chips too. I also made some brownies to add to their lunch.

  1. I love adding grapes or cranberries to my chicken salad too – adds that extra layer of flavor. I just need to figure out how to get my kids to eat it. #client

  2. I frequently make extra chicken for dinner so I have leftovers. This would be a great use for them.

    Thanks for sharing on Creative K Kids’ Tasty Tuesdays link up. Hope to see you back next week.
