What’s In a Green Goddess Chicken Salad Wrap? 

This salad wrap comes together with just a handful of simple ingredients for a refreshing flavor and creamy texture that leaves you feeling satisfied and energized. 

Bowls of ingredients for green goddess chicken salad wraps.
  • Chicken – We use boneless, skinless breasts. However, to save time and use up leftovers, you could use pre-cooked diced or shredded chicken instead. 
  • Salt and Black Pepper – Use as little or as much as you like. 
  • Cucumber – English cucumber work best as they have a sweeter taste and provide a satisfying crunch. If preferred, celery could be used instead. 
  • Avocado – This adds healthy omega fats and a creamy texture. 
  • Fresh Herbs – Fresh parsley or basil are added for a refreshing, herbaceous taste. 
  • Green Goddess Dressing – We use our homemade vegan green goddess dressing, but any store-bought variety you like best would work. 
  • Tortillas – We use either our almond flour tortillas or coconut flour tortillas to form the wrap, but any gluten-free tortilla or wrap will work great. 
  • Toppings – Technically optional but highly recommended, sprouts, spinach, green onions, and crumbled feta make this salad wrap extra filling and delicious. 

Flavor Variations 

We kept these chicken salad wraps fairly simple, but you can also add different mix-ins and ingredients! For example, some great variations include: 

  • Fruit – For a sweet element, include diced cherries, grapes, or chopped apples. 
  • Nuts – If you want a little extra crunch, try folding chopped nuts like almonds, walnuts, or pecans into the chicken salad. 
  • Extra Veggies – You can never have too many vegetables! Red onion, cabbage, carrots, sliced bell peppers, and water chestnuts are great options to fold into your wraps. 
  • Bacon – Add an extra savory element with uncured bacon or turkey bacon strips. 

How to Make This Gluten-Free Wrap (2 Ways)

Super easy to make, these gluten-free green goddess chicken salad wraps come together in minutes! 

  1. Cook the Chicken. Season the chicken on both sides and cook them in a preheated oven until they reach an internal temperature of 165º Fahrenheit. Skip this step if using pre-cooked chicken. 
  2. Prepare the Dressing. While the chicken is cooking, combine all the ingredients for the green goddess dressing in a blender or food processor, pulsing until smooth. Adjust the seasonings to taste, and set the dressing aside.

Pro Tip

Note: For a thinner dressing, add an extra tablespoon of olive oil at a time until the desired consistency is reached. 

  1. Rest the Chicken. Once the chicken is cooked, set it aside to rest for at least 10 minutes. This is crucial to prevent it from drying out! Then, shred or dice it up, and add it to a large mixing bowl. 
  2. Combine the Ingredients. Pour part of the dressing over the chicken, tossing to combine. Then, stir in the remaining ingredients until everything is completely coated in the dressing.

Pro-Tip: If you’re making this recipe ahead of time, leave out the cucumber and avocado until you’re ready to serve. (See storage tips below.)

  1. Assemble the Wraps. Spread part of the chicken salad mixture over your wrap, arrange your garnish and toppings on top, and roll the tortilla up like a burrito. 
  2. Enjoy! Slice your chicken salad wrap in half, serve it with extra dressing on the side, and dig in right away.

Pro Tip

Air Fryer Option

If you love air fryer recipes as much as we do, you’re in luck! Simply pre-heat your air fryer to 375º Fahrenheit, arrange the seasoned chicken breasts in the basket, and bake until they’re fully cooked, flipping them over halfway through. Set them aside to rest before dicing them up, and follow the rest of the recipe as listed in the recipe card below. 

Serving Suggestions

If you aren’t a fan of tortillas, this chicken salad also makes for a great dip with your favorite gluten-free crackers. Or, If you’re looking for an option that’s lower in carbohydrates, feel free to serve it in Bibb or Romaine lettuce leaves instead. Either way, it pairs well with all your favorite side dishes! For example, some of our favorite pairings include:

Make Ahead Option

If you want to prepare this green goddess chicken salad ahead of time, we recommend leaving it out of the tortillas until just before serving. Then, transfer the mixture to an airtight container, and keep it stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. For the best results, we recommend omitting the cucumber and avocado until just before serving to prevent them from getting soggy. 

We don’t recommend freezing the recipe as its flavor and texture will likely be altered once thawed.

Green Goddess Chicken Salad Wrap Recipe

  • Author: Lindsay Cotter
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 5 to 7 wraps
  • Diet: Gluten Free


Try this gluten-free green goddess chicken salad wrap recipe for a light but filling, high-protein meal! Dairy-free option.



Salad Wraps

  • 1 lb uncooked skinless chicken breasts or 2 cups pre-cooked diced or shredded chicken
  • Kosher salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup cucumber and/or celery, diced
  • ½ large avocado (80 grams), diced
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley or basil, chopped
  • 5 to 7 gluten-free tortillas or wraps
  • Optional Toppings: sprouts, spinach, crumbled feta

Green Goddess Dressing 

  • ½ ripe medium avocado (50 grams)
  • ½ cup chopped green onion (green portion)
  • cup torn flat leaf parsley (some stem is fine)
  • 3 Tablespoons torn leafy herbs (such as basil, dill, mint, and/or cilantro)
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped chives
  • cup canned coconut milk or light coconut milk (see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic or 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • Optional – 1 to 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, as needed (see notes)


  1. Preheat the oven (air fryer instructions in notes) to 375 F. Spray a small rimmed baking sheet or casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Generously season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Place seasoned chicken breasts on the prepared pan and place in the oven to bake for 25 to 28 minutes (depending on thickness). While the chicken is cooking, prepare the dressing.


Texture Tips – Canned lite coconut milk will produce a thinner green goddess dressing. Full-fat coconut milk will produce a thicker sauce/dressing that might need olive oil to thin out.

Alternative Method (Air Fryer) – Preheat the air fryer to 375F. Place seasoned chicken breasts in the preheated air fryer and bake for 12-16 minutes (depending on thickness) flipping halfway until they read 165 degrees F at its thickest point. Once chicken reaches 165 F remove the chicken from the air fryer and allow it to rest for at least 5-10 minutes before dicing or shredding.

Meal Prep Tips – If meal prepping this chicken salad for the week, mix diced chicken with the green goddess dressing and store in a sealed container. Keep cucumber and avocado separate until ready to serve then mix into the chicken. Keep the chicken salad separate until ready to wrap in the tortillas and eat.
