Tarragon Chicken & Avocado Wrap

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Servings: 4
Sandwiches and wraps are ideal for using up leftovers. Experiment with different combinations, such as sliced leftover steak, horseradish mayonnaise and sliced ripe tomatoes.


  • 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh tarragon
  • 2 cups diced pan-seared chicken
  • 1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled and coarsely
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 4 soft lavash or 8-inch flour tortillas
  • 1 small bunch watercress or arugula, tough stems removed


Make the dressing
Finely grate 1 tsp. zest and squeeze 1 1/2 Tbs. juice from the lemon into a bowl. Add the mayonnaise and tarragon and stir to combine.

Assemble the chicken salad
Add the chicken and avocado to the dressing and toss gently to coat all the ingredients. Season with salt and pepper.

Assemble the wraps
On a work surface, lay out the lavash. Divide the chicken salad equally among the 4 lavash, spreading the salad almost to the edges. Tear the watercress into small sprigs and scatter over the chicken salad. Fold the left and right sides over the filling about 1 inch on each side, then starting at the bottom, roll each into cylinders, enclosing the filling. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
