10 Minute Healthy Crispy Chicken and avocado Wraps

Crispy, cheesy, and healthy, these chicken and avocado wraps are easy to make and ready in under 10 minutes. 
My Famous 10 Minute Healthy Crispy Chicken and avocado WrapsBy now I’m going to assume you all know about my burrito obsession. It all started with me moving to Philly a few years back. There I was exposed to some of the most authentic Mexican food. I then began making it at home and next thing I knew, I was wrapping everything in a tortilla. I make breakfast burritos, baked burritos, and burrito bowls.

These chicken and avocado wraps are not really Mexican but they are one of our all time favorite meals and they are wrapped so I guess I can call them Tex-Mex. I shared the original recipe a few years back and it was a huge hit all over the internet, especially on pinterest. The recipe has been pinned over 1.8 million times! How awesome is that!

Because I get so many requests for this recipe I decided to share a few other ways we love to have these wraps. You can make these wraps as simple or as complicated as you want but let’s stick with the simple version for time’s sake. My Famous 10 Minute Healthy Crispy Chicken and avocado WrapsMy Famous 10 Minute Healthy Crispy Chicken and avocado WrapsYou can use any type of cooked chicken. Rotisserie, grilled, shredded, or pan seared chicken all work well. When I don’t have leftover chicken on hand I pan sear chicken breasts for a few minutes until tender.

    Hi, I was wondering what spice mix you use for the chicken? I’m also using yoghurt for lower fat result and substituting the cilantro by fresh basil.

      You can put them straight into the microwave for a 2 mins, more or less depending on your microwave. I like to microwave for a minute then toast in toaster oven for another minute to get a nice crispy exterior.

    I substituted Greek yogurt for an even healthier alternative to sour cream and added some chopped tomato for fun, and these turned out fantastic! Will definitely be making again.

    Love this recipe! Made my second batch tonight and I keep craving them! I skipped the cilantro because I hate cilantro and they are still delicious:) thank you!

    Looks great but question: With the sour cream in the mix, when you reheat it, does it taste weird or is that the desired effect?
