Pineapple Guacamole Chicken Wraps

This spin on chicken salad will make a perfect summer lunch with the cold chicken, creamy guacamole, sweet pineapples, and spicy peppers. Big thanks to Udi’s Gluten Free for sponsoring this post!

Pineapple Guacamole Chicken Wraps - a fun twist on chicken salad that's perfect for a hot summer day!

So, um, let’s talk about kitchen hacks. You know. Those genius tips and tricks that everyone but me seems to know.

Like, for example, using a marshmallow to keep your brown sugar soft and moist.

Or using the apple slicer to make potato wedges! (This one is a life changer, guys.)

Or how about freezing lemons or limes in a muffin tray with water for big lemony ice cubes to put in your pitcher of water? Geeeeenius.

I had to google all those tips, because like I said. I’m not very up on the kitchen hacks. My one and only kitchen hack claim to fame is for easy shredded chicken in your stand mixer.

Oh my gosh, guys. It makes my life so much easier. I’m always adding shredded chicken to recipes and I keep bags of it on hand in the freezer. I just take cooked boneless, skinless breasts (cook them all day in the crockpot or poach them on the stove) and toss ’em in the mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Turn it to low and in about 30 seconds you’ll have perfectly shredded chicken.

When Udi’s Gluten Free reached out to me and asked me to create a kitchen hack and recipe for their What the Hack contest, I knew that was the hack I would enter.

Then they sent along a list of ingredients to choose from, Chopped competition style, and I had to choose one of this and three of that and some of those and I ended up freaking out a little bit, further proving that no. I could never be on one of those competitions in real life, no matter what my mama says. In the end, I pulled together this ridiculously delicious (and easy!) chicken wrap.

This wrap is full of my favorite flavors. Shredded chicken breast, coated in creamy guacamole mixed with sweet pineapple and fiery jalapenos, all wrapped up in a delicious Udi’s Gluten Free Tortilla. By the way, this was my first time trying their tortillas and I was so surprised by how much I loved them. The texture after warming them up is amazing and I loved the flavor. These might just replace my regular flour tortillas!

I’ve now eaten this for lunch three days in a row and I see no end to it. After all, I have bags of shredded chicken lurking the freezer, just begging to be put to good use!

Udi’s What The Hack: Hackathon contest just launched and it’s open for all of you to enter as well! Have a unique hack? Go share it for the chance to win a cash prize or some Udi’s products!

    Um, clearly I’m behind on the times as well. An apple slicer for potato wedges–genius! I need to start making chicken salad in my KitchenAid. Thanks for the update. This chicken salad sounds amazing. Pinned!

    Why have I never thought to freeze lemon and lime juice? WHY???????

    The potato/apple thing? Life. Changing.

    What the hack? How did I not know about shredding chicken in a stand mixer? I hate shredding chicken and I do it all the time. You’ve just made my life so much easier. :) Pineapple guacamole sounds delicious, and this entire wrap — extra tasty. Nice work!

    I heart guac.
    Hence, these wraps look dreamy!! Great recipe.

    What a clever idea for shredding chicken, will be using that little tip for sure. Also adding crushed pineapple to the wrap sounds delicious!

    I have a Ponderosa lemon tree I grew from a seed. It put out hundreds of huge lemons and it overwhelmed us, so we squeezed them and froze the juice. I am just wondering why you would add water ? You don’t need to !! It will freeze into cubes nicely and I just take what I need out and let it defrost. Then add to recipes, tea, or anything you need lemon juice for ! I use it all year long until another season of fresh lemons. I already have more on the tree that will be ready by fall.


  14. Happy Friday, Karly! These wraps look so sca-rumptious! I could definitely go for one for lunch #2. :)

    Wow, you come up with some GOOD stuff!

    That stand mixer Karly!! She’s a beaut! We can talk about stand mixers the way men talk about boats right? That’s totally normal?

      @Karen @ The Food Charlatan,

      Totally. I thought I’d broken her the other day and was frantically trying to decide on a new color. Then she started working again and I was kind of sad. 😉


  17. At first I thought guac and pineapple? But after thinking about it for a minute and looking at your gorg pictures I’ve decided it sounds spectacular!!
