Mango Chicken Wraps

These Mango Chicken Wraps are one of my absolute favorite recipes. I make them ALL the time, and I hope you love them too! You can use any meat you like. Turkey is delicious in them, too.

As with many recipes on this blog, these mango chicken wraps happened because of what I had in the fridge. I had to get creative with lunch for Mini Chef, and this was the stuff I had on hand. Thankfully, it turned out super tasty, or he would have been a very grumpy kid. He doesn’t just get hungry. He gets hangry. (Yes, he takes after his mother. Ehem…)

I made the chicken in my Instant Pot (loving that thing!!!) by combining the salsa and chicken. That was it! Super easy! Then I just shredded the chicken and made Mini Chef his wrap.

These mango chicken wraps are very filling and have a nice combination of sweet and savory. You can make the chicken the night before if you are planning ahead. In my opinion, you can never have too much salsa chicken in the house. It’s great for so many things! (It freezes well, too). So make a big batch and freeze whatever you don’t use. That way, you’ll always have meat for wraps, burritos, or tacos!

Are Chicken Wraps Healthy?

If you make them at home, chicken wraps are totally healthy. Use healthy ingredients, and you’ll have a healthy meal. Simple as that.

Is A Chicken Wrap Healthier Than A Chicken Sandwich?

It can be, but it’s not automatically a given. It also depends on your definition of healthy. If you watch carbs, a tortilla wrap can be healthier, especially if it’s a low-carb wrap, but overall, they are about the same, give or take.

Optional Additions For Mango Chicken Wraps

About The Mango Chicken Wrap Ingredients

Chicken breasts – Boneless & skinless.

Salsa – Use your favorite kind. Just make sure there is no sugar added.

Whole wheat tortillas – No sugar added. Check the ingredient list.

Lettuce – Whatever type you prefer. Butter lettuce and Romain, as well as green or red lettuce, work well for wraps.

Mango – Peeled and cut into strips.

How To Make Mango Chicken Wraps

Instructions

  • Cook the chicken breasts with the salsa either in the oven or in an Instant Pot.

Oven Instructions

  • Place chicken in a casserole dish, pour the salsa over the top, cover the dish with foil, and bake at 350 F for approximately 50-60 minutes or until the chicken reaches at least 165 F. on a meat thermometer.

Instant Pot Instructions

  • Place the chicken in the insert and pour the salsa over the top. Press the “Meat” button and set it to 30 minutes.
  • When the chicken is done, shred it with two forks.
  • Lay out a warmed tortilla and place the lettuce on it. Then add the mango and the chicken and wrap it up like a burrito.
  • Cut in half and serve with a little extra salsa for dipping.

Storing Mango Chicken Wraps

Store the fillings separate from the tortilla until the last possible moment to keep the wrap from getting soggy. If it’s already made, wrap it well in plastic wrap and store it in the fridge for up to 1 to 2 days.

Freezing

Freezing is not recommended once the wrap is assembled. However, you can freeze the meat filling with the mango for up to 4 months if stored in a freezer-safe, airtight container.

Reheating

Thaw frozen filling in the fridge for a full 24 hours. Once thawed, add the lettuce and wrap in a tortilla.
