This Jalapeño Popper Chicken Salad is the ultimate! Creamy chicken salad with roasted jalapeños, bacon and cheddar cheese. Say goodbye to boring ol’ chicken sandwiches and have Jalapeño Popper Chicken Wraps instead.
I am proud to be partnering with Flatout Flatbreads® to bring you this tasty recipe!
You just can’t go wrong with jalapeño popper inspired recipes. And what better way to liven up chicken salad than to add some roasted jalapeños, bacon and cheese!?!? Roasting the jalapeños ensures that it is not over-the-top spicy. The crisp, salty bacon and cheddar cheese take this chicken salad to the next level! This is a must try, especially for anyone looking for a pop of flavor in their lunches.
Since the chicken salad is a bit heavier it pairs perfectly with Flatout Flatbreads. Flatout Flatbreads are BIG on flavor with no added sugar. They are also a great source of protein and fiber. Flatout Flatbread® is now endorsed by Weight Watchers®. Members can enjoy Flatout Flatbreads for 2 to 4 Smart Points® each.
Flatout Flatbreads are terrific for portion control, lightening up meals or feeding the family. My daughter and I are in love with the Flatout Artisan Thin Pizza Crust. I’ve been making her favorite Pepperoni and Olive Flatbread Pizza on the regular!
For these wraps I used the Flatout Flatbread® Light Original, added a bit of lettuce then MUNCHED! This is a very filling meal so you can totally be satisfied with half a wrap, or cut them into fun pinwheels.
