California Chicken Club Wrap | www.tasteandtellblog.com
I have been spending a lot of time in my archives lately. Not only updating the recipes, (so you can save them to your recipe box!), but I’ve been revisiting some of those recipes for dinnertime ideas. I have several 3 ring binders full of recipes that have been printed off over the years. A few of them are of recipes that I’ve never made, but several of them are of recipes that I have made and blogged about. I’m trying to simplify my life, which means I’m getting rid of a lot of stuff, and part of this purge has been going through these recipes. But instead of just getting rid of all of the recipes that I’ve already blogged about, I’ve ended up with a new binder of recipes that I want to remake!!

These wraps are one of those recipes that I know will make it into my “I want to make these again” pile. So easy, and so perfect for a hot summer day. I have been really into super simple, little heat required meals this year, and this one totally falls into that category. The only thing that I was bummed out about with this recipe is that it calls for bacon, and I for some reason had zero bacon on hand when I went to make these. Which I was so sad about, because even though these were so good, I think they would have been even better with that bacon!! (I’ve included it in the recipe below, because I think that you’ll want the bacon in them, too!)

Regardless, though, these were so good. And if you have a rotisserie chicken, or leftover chicken on hand, it makes these even easier. My idea of a perfect summer dinner!


California Chicken Club Wrap
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Shredded chicken, mango and avocado are the stars in this easy weeknight dinner or lunch recipe.
Serves: 4 servings
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 mango, finely chopped
  • 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 avocado
  • 4 large whole wheat or spinach wraps (10-inch)
  • 2 cups shredded romaine
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  1. Cook the bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain; set aside.
  2. Put the chicken in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the mango, 3 tablespoons of the mayonnaise and the lime juice.
  3. Halve the avocado. Remove the pit and discard. Scoop the avocado out into a small bowl and mash coarsely with a fork. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Put a wrap on your work surface. Spread one-quarter of the avocado, leaving a 2-inch border. Sprinkle ½ cup of the lettuce over the top.
  5. Lay one fourth of the tomato down the center of the wrap. Top with 2 slices of bacon. Add one quarter of the chicken mixture down the center, on top of the tomato and bacon.
  6. Fold one end over the wrap, then fold in the two sides. Roll the wrap like a burrito toward the open end. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  7. Cut each wrap in half before serving.

    So good; I would love these with whole grain Flatout bread, one of my faves! And thanks for the mention!

    Oh I so know what you mean. I think it’s that whole “Nesting” thing for us food bloggers right now, because I went through all of my food binders a few weeks ago and threw so many things out that I can’t even tell you why I kept in the first place. These look really yummy! I adore wraps. Josh and I working on perfecting one of our bbq wraps!

  8. This chicken club wrap sounds so fresh and delicious. Love the green color of the wrap you used too. And thank you very much for the mention in your “other wrap” recipe links. You have such a beautiful blog.

  9. Love the simplicity of this! And I really need to find me some of those spinach wraps!

  10. This looks amazing, I love a wrap and I love spinach wraps!

  11. I have a binder of recipes from various sources that has gotten a little unorganized lately. I have been trying to go back through and narrow the recipes down and get rid of ones I have made, but now I just have more recipes I want to make with not enough time to make them. Ha! And I hear ya about easy meals, I don’t know what it is about summer but I lose almost all motivation to cook ‘meals.’ This looks like a great recipe to have on hand!

  12. Guuuurl this is so made for my mouth.

  13. Monet says:

    I can see why you would want to make these again. They look just delicious. Thank you for sharing them with me!

  14. Joanne says:

    The sad thing about blogging is that you rarely get a chance to remake recipes! I like to think that’s why I have a boyfriend…a lot of them are new to him. :) These sound so delicious. Such a fresh-flavored wrap.

  15. Beth says:

    Oooh these look delicious! It has been so hot lately, I think it’s a perfect use of my next leftover rotisserie chicken…nice and cool and summery! Thanks!
