Ready In:




  • Put chicken in a large skillet not too deep that has simmering salted water. Cover and cook at medium-low heat for about 12 minutes or until the chicken is not pink inside (flip it at mid-cooking). Put the chicken in a plate and let cool in the fridge. Cut the cold chicken in dice.
  • In a large bowl, mix celery, mayonnaise, dill, Dijon mustard, zest and lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add chicken and stir to coat well. (You can do the chicken garnish in advance and cover it. It will be good up to 4 hours in the fridge.).
  • Put 1/4 cup of watercress in the center of each half-tortillas. Cover with 3/4 cup of the chicken garnish. Bringing one of the point towards the center, roll half-tortillas on the garnish in a way to form a horn. Envelop the base with waxed paper or fix it with long tooth-pick.

    I made for 2 but for dietary reasons had to omit the celery (which I think was a let down for me for I like it so next time will divide the mix and mix the celery into mine) but overall found it very heavy in the mayonnaise so would cut back on that but the flavours overall were great and served on a grained tortilla. Thank you Boomette, made for ZAAR Stars tag game.

    This made a super yummy, very filling lunch. Loved the fresh citrusy-dill flavor. I used butter lettuce on whole-grain flat out and rolled it up like a wrap. Thanks Booms.

    I made this for lunch and it was just great. I used lettuce and added some chopped green onions. The salad held up to the tortilla, it didn't get lost in it. In other words it had a lot of flavor.

    Tangy! The citrus and dijon make a great combination in this chicken salad wrap. I threw some halved grape tomatoes in and used whole small wheat tortillas. I had to use dried dill (about half as much) since mine isn't ready from the garden just yet. Made for Holiday tag!

    OH YUM~!!!! This is a light and delicious chicken salad! I used Sun Dried Tomato tortillas, and alfalfa sprouts instead of watercress - the markets didn't look good today. I also added a handful of chopped pecans. Just wonderful! Thanks Boomette! I will make this again! Made for PRMR
