What Is A Cajun Chicken Wrap?

A Cajun chicken wrap is somewhat similar to a fajita wrap in that the main part of the filling is the meat (chicken or beef) with peppers and onions. But that’s where the similarities stop.

The seasoning is totally different, offering you a great way to buy the same ingredients while getting two very different tasting meals out of them.

Is a Cajun Chicken Wrap Healthy?

As with any wrap, it all depends on what you put in it and what your tortillas are made of. While “healthy” is relative, this particular recipe is a cut above the rest because it uses a whole-grain tortilla, fresh veggies, healthy fats, and delicious seasoning that is made of just herbs. No sugar or preservatives!

Ingredient Variations For Different Diets

Vegetarian Cajun Chicken Wraps

To make this vegetarian, you can use portobello mushrooms in place of the chicken and ensure your wrap is vegetarian.

Vegan Cajun Chicken Wraps

As with the vegetarian version, you can substitute the chicken with portobello mushrooms or any vegan meal replacement you prefer. Avoid cheese or use vegan cheese and ensure that your wrap is also vegan.

Keto Cajun Chicken Wraps

For a keto version (or low-carb version), make sure your tortilla is keto (egg wraps make a good substitute here). Use extra cheese and plenty of oil to cook the chicken and veggies. Also, go light on the peppers and onions because the carbs can really add up with those.

Dairy-Free Cajun Chicken Wraps

This recipe is naturally dairy-free. But I’ll state the obvious and say you shouldn’t add any cheese. (Or use vegan cheese.

Gluten-Free Chicken Wraps

If you purchase your Cajun seasoning, you’ll want to ensure that it’s gluten-free. Also, use a gluten-free wrap.

Extra Toppings

If you want to fill up your wrap a bit more, you can add cheese (provolone is a good choice), and/or use ranch dressing as a sauce. Fresh basil leaves are another way to flesh out the flavors a bit if you choose. You can also add a small amount of fresh lemon juice to the pan while cooking the vegetables (onion slices and red pepper slices) and chicken pieces. Avocado is also a nice addition. And lastly, for some extra spiciness, add a sprinkle of ground black pepper.
