Total Time

There are so many wraps but I think you will find this one a bit different, very hearty and tasty. It can be a "Do ahead" recipe by preparing all the ingredients ahead of time, place them in the fridge, assemble just before lunch. I like to use a Spring mix Lettuce that has Arugula in it but Iceberg lettuce is fine. The eggs are optional but they do add flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 12 cups cold cooked chicken, shredded
  • 6 cups lettuce, shredded
  • 1 cup pecans, cut in half -not chopped
  • 9 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 6 tablespoons red onions, chopped quite fine
  • 15 cherry tomatoes, diced
  • 6 hard-boiled eggs, cold, chopped (optional)
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded, membrane removed, finely minced (use more if you like hot & spicy)
  • salt & pepper
  • 6 large whole wheat tortillas (sun dried tomato or flour)


  1. Mix together the mayo, Dijon, tomato, onion, eggs and jalapeño.
  2. Season with salt & pepper.
  3. Divide the mixture evenly and spread it on the 6 tortillas covering the whole surface.
  4. Sprinkle on the lettuce and pecans evenly on each tortilla.
  5. Place your shredded chicken on the edge closest to you and roll the tortilla.
  6. Use a toothpick or two to hold together if you find it necessary.
  7. Cut in half and arrange nicely on a platter.

I really loved this easy lunch recipe. It was a delicious combination of flavors, making for a healthy and filling lunch. I used sun dried tomato tortillas, which were an excellent complement to the filling ingredients. Thanks for a wonderful wrap recipe. I'll definitely be making these again! *Made for RSC 10 contest*
