Cranberry Almond Chicken Salad Wraps

If you like this recipe, please share!

Cranberry Almond Chicken salad makes a great lunch.Those who know me well know I am a chicken salad connoisseur. Chicken salad is something I make a couple of times a month for lunch. My youngest and I are the only ones who like chicken salad in the house. The fact that he’s a teenager means it doesn’t last long and I don’t get much. But that’s OK because I’m teaching him how to make it so, really, he can have it whenever he wants.Since I make chicken salad so much I’ve often mixed up the add-ins. Since I had a big bag of dried cranberries I decided that cranberries and almonds would pair nicely. To add a bit more depth of flavor I roasted the chicken in the oven and toast the almonds over medium low heat in a skillet. It’s OK to prepare the chicken however you would like and using leftovers or starting with a store-bought rotisserie chicken is a great idea.

I happened to have flour tortillas on hand the day I made this cranberry almond chicken salad so I made wraps. I love to serve this on a flaky croissant, mini Hawaiian rolls for sliders, on a brioche bun which is my personal favorite, or your favorite sandwich bread. You could also make this into a festive and seasonal appetizer by topping crostini with a dollop.

My family always thinks I'm crazy for adding cranberries and walnuts or almonds to chicken salad - but it's soooooo good! A great go-to lunch option.
