Chipotle Chicken Wrap Recipe – 8 Points +

Chipotle Chicken Wrap

This Chipotle Chicken Wrap Recipe is one of my favorite Weight Watchers lunch recipes. Not only is it a very nicely sized serving and very filling, but it is mouthwateringly good! The heat and smoky spice of the chipotle peppers is cooled a bit with the tangy Greek yogurt. This sauce is combined with the cooked chicken breast and fresh vegetables condiments and it all comes together to create a flavorful, light wrap that is amazingly good and can be prepared super quickly. If you have leftover chicken, this is an ideal recipe.

  1. Hello, Im new to these wrap ideas they sound good and super easy and light for the summer and work week. I want to ask is it better to use chicken that has cooled down after cooking or while its still warm when putting the wraps together. Any pointers will be great. Thanks!!

    • LaaLoosh says:

      It’s really all a matter of taste….I usually like my chicken warm to room temperature for this particular recipe. For others, if I’m using a cheese, I try to use warmer chicken, as it helps to soften the cheese a bit and makes it easier to form and wrap it all together. I ALWAYS use a warm to room temp wrap (the actual bread-like wrap) , because they can very easily tear or break when cold. But overall, it’s really a matter of personal preference :)

  2. This wrap looks amazing and the ingredients tell me that it tastes DELICIOUS! I can’t wait to try!! And I’d love to feature it on our website, Land of Nosh. Would you email me so I can tell you about the details? info [at] land-of-nosh [dot] com Thanks!!

    Greek Yoghurt is prohibitively expensive where I live. Is there anything else I can use as a substitute?

    • LaaLoosh says:

      Yes, you can use sour cream in it’s place. Though it may affect the Points Plus value…..so you’ll have to double-check the nutritional stats when you make it.
