Avocado Chicken Wraps

With the temperature getting warmer, I’m all about quick and easy meals. These avocado chicken wraps with harissa mayo pack in the perfect combination of flavors of spiced chicken, ripe avocado, spicy mayo sauce and pickled onions.

Everything gets wrapped in a warm tortilla and is ready in just about 30 minutes. I love this recipe as an easy dinner idea, or quick lunch combination to throw together during busy work days.

The chicken is seasoned with a few simple spices like smoked paprika, paprika, garlic powder and salt and pepper. It’s air-fried (or baked) until golden brown, then layered in a wrap with all your favorite fix-ins!

What you’ll need to make Chicken Wraps with Harissa Mayo

Spiced chicken:

  • Boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • Spices: paprika, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt & pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon juice

Harissa mayo:

  • Mayonnaise- any variety you prefer
  • Harissa paste
  • Lemon juice
  • Parsley
  • Paprika, salt & pepper

For the wraps:

Preparing the Wraps

  1. Make the pickled red onions: the onions need at least an hour to marinate, but the longer they sit the better. I suggest preparing these in advance to save some time
  2. Prep the chicken: season the chicken with the spices, olive oil and lemon juice and bake, air-fry or grill on a pan
  3. Prepare the add-ons: while the chicken cooks, chop your veggies and mix together the harissa mayo sauce
  4. Assemble the wraps. Prepare the wraps with all of the toppings once all of the ingredients are ready

How to cook your chicken

I left two options in the recipe card about cooking options for the chicken. I personally prefer it air-fried, but this recipe can be made in the oven or over the stove-top

Air-fried chicken

Place your seasoned chicken on your air-fryer rack, either directly in it or over a sheet of parchment. Air fry on 375 F for about 15 minutes, flipping halfway through

Baked chicken

Bake the chicken on 400 F for 15 minutes, then set it under the broiler for another 2 minutes to crisp

Grilled chicken

Heat a skillet over medium heat and drizzle in some oil. Grill the chicken for about 4-5 minutes per side, until browned.

Ingredients

  • 4 large 4 tortillas/wraps

  • 1 1 avocado, sliced

  • Pickled onions or Sumac onions

  • 2 cups 2 shredded romaine lettuce

  • Seasoned Chicken
  • 1.2 1.2 -1.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast, about 3 thick pieces

  • 1 tsp 1 paprika

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 salt

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 black pepper

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 smoked paprika

  • Juice from 1/2 lemon

  • Olive oil

  • Harissa Mayo
  • 1/4 cup 1/4 mayonnaise

  • 2 tbsp 2 harissa paste

  • Juice from 1/2 lemon

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 paprika

  • 2 tbsp 2 fresh parsley, chopped

  • Salt & pepper, to taste

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F if using the oven method- I air-fried my chicken on 375 F.
  • Prepare the pickled or sumac onions to let them marinate while you prep the rest of the meal.
  • Cut each chicken breast in half and then into strips, about 3″ long. Add it to a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil and the spices. Toss together to combine.
  • Add the chicken to your air-fryer rack and air-fry on 375 F for 12-15 minutes, flipping halfway through. If baking, add the chicken to a sheet-pan and bake on 400 F for 15 minutes, flipping halfway through. Broil for 1-2 minutes at the end.
  • While that bakes, prepare the harissa mayo sauce by whisking or blending together the mayo, harissa, chopped parsley, lemon juice, and spices until smooth.
  • Once the chicken is ready, heat your tortillas over a flame or on a heated pan. Spread the harissa mayo over the center and layer with the lettuce, spiced chicken, avocado and onions. Fold in both sides then wrap using parchment paper to hold it together
