Fun with leftovers! The Chicken Waldork Wrap


We all know about my love for smoothies. But what I can't throw in a blender I often wrap in a tortilla.

Today's lunch was inspired by the hunk of leftover rotisserie chicken in the fridge. I call this the Chicken Waldork Wrap.

WalDORK because I wasn't quite sure what went into a traditional Waldorf salad so I used raisins instead of grapes. Also dorky? I forgot to take the sticker off the apple (more fiber!).

Usually chicken salad is bound together with mayonnaise, but I wanted to keep the fat calories for the walnuts. So I used a quarter cup of nonfat Greek yogurt and a squirt of lemon juice, which worked out just dandy. Here's the full recipe, with nutritional info computed by SparkRecipes.com:

Chicken Waldork Wrap

  • 1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 3 oz. chicken breast, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon raisins
  • 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 medium apple, chopped (remember to take off the sticker!)
  • 1 small stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Flatout Multigrain wrap

Combine all ingredients and mix. Spoon into wrap and roll.
