🔪 How to Make Rotisserie Chicken Wraps
These wraps are super easy to make. It only takes a little prep and a few steps!
Step 1: Shred the Chicken
Using two forks or shredding claws, shred the rotisserie chicken and add it to a large bowl.
Step 2: Make the Chicken Salad
Add the celery, mayonnaise, onions, lemon juice, salt, and pepper to the shredded chicken and mix to combine.
Step 3: Prep the Tomatoes and Lettuce
Slice the tomatoes and pull apart the romaine lettuce. Set them aside.
Step 4: Toast the Tortillas
Add nonstick cooking spray to a large skillet and toast the tortillas over medium heat until nicely golden brown.
Step 5: Construct the Wraps
Place the tortillas on a flat surface and add the lettuce to the center of them. Then, top with 1/2 cup of chicken salad and sliced tomatoes. Fold in the sides of the tortillas. Then, bring up the bottom flap and tuck it over the filling and the folded sides. Roll the wrap until you reach the end and it feels secure.

This recipe is extremely easy to make, but we do have some tips to help you make it the best that it can possibly be. These are simple tips, but they make a big difference.
- Shred your chicken while it’s very warm or hot. Warm meat shreds more easily than cold meat.
- Shredding claws are best for shredding the chicken, but two forks will work.
- Always thoroughly wash your produce to remove any bacteria or pesticide residue.
Do you have questions about this recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.
No one knows exactly who invented it or where, but we do know that one of the earliest American forms of chicken salad was served by Town Meats in Wakefield, Rhode Island in 1863. Liam Gray, the owner, mixed his leftover chicken with mayo, tarragon, and grapes.
Sandwiches have been around since the late 18th century, but wraps weren’t invented until the early 80s. Although there are two different accounts of who invented wraps, the one that is most believed is that Bobby Valentine of baseball fame invented wraps in 1982.
It will last for up to 3 days in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
We don’t recommend it. The tortillas can get soggy over time. And rotisserie chicken wraps are so easy to make you can just throw one together as you need it.

- Slice tomatoes and pull apart the romaine lettuce in preparation for building the wraps. Set aside.
- In a large skillet, add non-stick cooking spray to begin toasting the tortillas over medium heat one at a time. This step is optional, the tortillas do not need to be toasted.
- Place tortilla on a flat surface to begin building your wraps one at a time. In the center of the wrap add the lettuce, spread ½ cup of chicken mixture over the lettuce and then top with sliced tomatoes.
- Fold in the sides of the tortilla, bring up the bottom flap and tuck it over the filling and the folded sides. Begin to roll the wrap until you reach the end and it feels secure. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
- Allow the finished wraps to rest a few minutes before you cut them in half for serving. I like to cut them in half at an angle for an extra touch.
Do not overstuff wrap or you risk it splitting when folding. If the wrap feels stiff before preparing, microwave for 15 seconds to give more flexibility when folding it. This chicken salad is great in or out of a wrap, can be served with celery sticks or crackers for dipping as an alternative. If making in the fall, put a spin on it and add dried cranberries to the mixture.
