I’m on a healthy wrap kick. Well, a sandwich kick in general. I’m usually a leftovers-for-lunch type of gal, but lately, I’ve been craving a sandwich or a simple wrap. But here’s the thing, I don’t care for deli meat. I can rally occasionally for turkey but otherwise meeehhhhh, pass.

Because of this, I gravitate towards tuna, chicken or eggs as my sandwich protein. I stumbled across these lightly breaded chicken strips at Costco and they looked like a pretty wholesome, convenient lunch protein source. Score! And that’s how this honey mustard wrap were born.

This recipe simultaneously gets filed in my ‘healthy meals’ archive and my ‘delectably indulgent’ archives because it is BOTH. It is ‘fast food’ but made with wholesome ingredients in your kitchen where you have control. Prepping the components ahead of time is a great way to set yourself up for a week of yummy lunches and I definitely serve these for dinner as well!

Simple ingredients you’ll need to make honey mustard chicken wraps:

picture of the ingredients needed to make the recipe

Tortillas: I keep it pretty simple here. I buy burrito-size flour tortillas or the spinach herb wraps. You want the tortilla to be big enough to fit all the good fillings!

Crispy chicken tenders: I don’t buy premade chicken tenders often (I usually just make them myself!) but I recently discovered the Real Good Foods lightly breaded chicken strips at Costco. They’re made with chickpea flour and real chicken breast and shockingly good. They are a great shortcut for a quick protein and perfect for this recipe.

Provolone cheese: you can use any mild cheese- swiss cheese, cheddar cheese, mozzarella or even cream cheese would work. I like to get freshly sliced provolone from the deli at my local grocery store.

Bacon: bake your bacon on sheet pan and keep cooked slices in the fridge for an easy boost of delicious flavor. There’s something about a handful of crisp, salty bacon that makes a wrap infinitely better.

Salad stuff: choose your journey here- I love curly green leaf lettuce, julienned carrots and cucumber. But you could add whatever veggies you love.

Honey mustard dressing: omg this iconic honey mustard dip is SO GOOD. You’ll need a handful of pantry staples like mayo, Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard (or yellow mustard), honey, sriracha, salt and pepper.

Pickles: I love using dill pickle chips but you could use pickle spears or sweet pickles.

Green onions: I don’t think I can make anything without fresh herbs and green onions are the perfect finish here!

How to make this easy honey mustard chicken wrap:

Whisk up the dressing. Combine mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, ACV, honey, salt, pepper, mustard and sriracha in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Taste and season with another pinch of salt and black pepper, per your taste. You can also add more sriracha if you like it spicy!

In a medium bowl combine the lettuce, carrots and cucumbers. Add about half the dressing and toss to combine.

Cook the chicken tenders per the package instructions. I air fried my chicken strips for 12 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through.

Lay a tortilla on a flat surface. Spread a big dollop of creamy honey mustard sauce on the tortilla. Add two slices of provolone cheese and 1 slice chopped crispy bacon. Next add a pile of the dressed salad, 2-3 chicken strips, 3-4 pickles and a sprinkle of green onions. The amount of chicken you use is up to you/ how much will fit.

Drizzle the filling with a little more dressing. Fold in the short sides first, then fold over the long edge, tucking it under the filling and rolling to create a tight burrito.

Heat a swish of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the wrap seam side down and toast the wrap for 30-60 seconds per side until golden brown and crispy.

Repeat the process based on how many wraps you’re making.

Expert tips and variation ideas:

  • There is a LOT of filling in these wraps so 1) make sure you get a big enough tortilla! And 2) fold the short ends in first and then fold over the long side really squeeeezing the wrap to make it more cohesive.
  • Be sure to toast the wrap seam side down first.
  • Feel free to bread raw chicken tenderloins with a panko mixture and fry or air-fry them instead of buying a premade kind.
  • Add any other vegetables you love! Other great additions would be spinach leaves, romaine lettuce, red bell pepper, avocado, red onion, fresh tomatoes, sprouts, arugula, etc.
  • Instead of crispy chicken you could make this with shredded chicken breast or rotisserie chicken.
  • Use a whole wheat tortilla for a boost of fiber.
  • I love this as a wrap but you could ditch the tortilla and make a killer crispy chicken honey mustard salad!

FAQs

Can I make this gluten-free?

To make this gluten-free, you’ll need gluten-free chicken tenders (the Real Good Food ones are!) and use a gluten-free tortilla wrap. I don’t use GF tortillas often but word on the streets is that they don’t hold together as well, so beware of that.
Alternatively, you could ditch the tortilla and make a salad!

How do I store leftovers?

Store the components separately: dressing, chicken, veggies, pickles, bacon. Then when you’re ready to eat, assemble the wrap and toast it.

What should I serve with these wraps?

Mmmmm so many options here. More of that green salad with honey mustard dressing, sliced veggies, potato chips, sweet potato fries, spinach side salad, a warm bowl of soup or fresh fruit.

Can I grill the chicken instead of using tenders?

Absolutely. Any style of chicken (grilled, shredded, roasted, chicken strips, etc) is going to be yummy!
