The Dish | Super Bowl Chicken Salad Wrap with Creamy Avocado Dip

Here is a more healthy approach for your Super Bowl menu and still a crowd pleaser. Easy to make and serve. You can prepare each wrap separately or set it up salad bar style and let “your team” pick their own favorite toppings. 

  • 2 pounds boneless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 2 sweet potatoes, cut into thin matchsticks (¼ inch)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups of Arugula tossed lightly w/olive oil, lemon juice and a pinch of salt
  • ¼ red onion cut into slices
  • 2 Persian cucumbers sliced into rounds
  • 4 flour tortillas

Avocado Dipping Sauce

  • 2 large avocados, halved and pitted
  • ½ cup lightly packed fresh cilantro
  • ½ cup basil
  • ⅓ cup lemon juice 
  • 1 small jalapeño, seeds and ribs removed, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons water, more as needed to thin
  • Dash of red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Using a spoon, scoop the flesh of the avocados into a food processor or blender. Add the cilantro, basil, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, jalapeño, water, and salt. Blend until creamy. Add more water if it is too thick.
  • Preheat the oven to 425° F.
  • In a bowl, toss together the chicken with 2 tablespoons olive oil, the garlic, paprika, cumin, chili powder, chili flakes, and a pinch of salt.
  • On a large baking sheet, toss together the sweet potatoes with 2 tablespoons olive oil, seasoned salt, and a pinch of pepper. Bake 15 minutes. Push the potatoes to one side of the pan, arrange the chicken on the other side. Add the lemons. Bake another 15-25 minutes until the chicken is cooked and the potatoes are crispy.
  • Meanwhile, make the Avocado Dipping sauce. Chop the cucumbers and slice the onion. Toss the arugula with olive oil and lemon. 
  • To serve, spread the avocado sauce onto a tortilla. Top with chicken, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, red onions and arugula.  Enjoy!
