One of my favourite lunch spots, which sadly is no longer in business, used to make a fantastic chicken Waldorf wrap filled with crunchy apples, shredded chicken breast, plump seedless grapes, and chopped celery.
One day, it occurred to me that just about everything in my beloved chicken Waldorf wrap gets along famously with peanut butter – apples, celery, grapes, even chicken… so why not add some chunky peanut butter to the dressing to make a peanut butter chicken Waldorf instead? While it might sound a little unusual, it’s actually quite delicious. The creamy peanut butter dressing brings out the crispy, crunchy, sweet and salty qualities that made me fall in love with the original, along with a rich, peanutty flavour that the original never had. It’s a great way to use up leftover roast chicken or turkey, too!
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 0 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes
Yield: 4 wraps
2 cups chopped roasted chicken breast
2 Red Delicious apples, roughly chopped
1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
½ cup large green seedless grapes, cut in half
¼ cup Peanut Butter & Co. Crunch Time peanut butter
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
4 large flour tortillas
1. In a large mixing bowl, combine chicken breast, apple, celery and grapes.
2. In a small mixing bowl, stir together Crunch Time peanut butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice until smooth. Pour into the salad, and toss to coat everything evenly with dressing.
3. To assemble the wraps, spoon one-quarter of the salad onto the middle of a tortilla, leaving the bottom third uncovered. Fold up like a burrito, completely enclosing the filling. Repeat with the remaining salad and tortillas. Serve immediately.
