Mexican Chicken Salad Sandwich/Pita

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MrsKnox2016

Trying to eat healthy? Throw together this quick and flavorful cold chicken salad-with a Mexican flavor! I served this warm flat bread, folded like a taco, but this would be delicious on bread in traditional sandwich form, or even on top of some dark leafy greens with a drizzle of salsa. Healthy eating everyone!

This was very easy and very tasty! I will make this again. I didn't have any corn, I sub'd cream style corn. I added homemade pinto beans. And just a squirt HOT sauce. BUT, this was great and filling. The beans made it go further. My husband loved it!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 ounces canned chicken breasts (or 1 large cooked chicken breast)
  • 3 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 12 medium onion, diced
  • 1 cup corn (frozen or canned)
  • 1 large roma tomato, diced and seeded
  • 4 leaves lettuce, sliced into shreds
  • 3 tablespoons salsa
  • 12 lime
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoons taco seasoning
  • 12 jalapeno, seeded and diced fine
  • 4 flat bread (or 8 bread slices)


  1. Run your knife through the chicken breast to break up the larger chunks. Place this mixture in a large bowl.
  2. Add cheese, onion, corn (thawed, but not heated), tomato, salsa and jalapeño.
  3. Drizzle avocado with juice of 1/2 lime, then add avocado to the bowl.
  4. Add 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper and 2 tsp taco seasoning to the bowl, then toss to mix well.
  5. Assemble your meal by warming a piece of flat bread, then adding a layer of lettuce shreds before topping with 1/4 mixture. Fold and enjoy taco-style.
  6. **These are pretty large, filling serving sizes. If I was serving this with other dishes, I would probably estimate this would serving 5 or 6, depending on how hungry you are.
