How to make low carb avocado chicken salad wraps

Print this recipe
I try to always have cooked chicken in my fridge so that I can quickly make satisfying low-carb meals. For the recipe below, you can use roasted or pressured cooked chicken, or pick up a rotisserie chicken at the supermarket. Either way, you’ll be so happy when you can whip up this quick meal.
I’ve always made my chicken salad with mayonnaise, but this version uses creamy avocado instead. It’s so rich and satisfying, I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to go back to the old way. You can vary this recipe by adding fruit (like diced apples or grapes) or nuts (almonds or cashews) to the mix.
