Rosemary Chicken Salad Wraps

I am of the opinion that one can never have too many chicken salad recipes.  So even though I already have several that I love, I’m always looking to try new ones as well.  This recipe from Cooking Light is going to go down as one of my all-time favorites I think.  Absolutely delicious, and great to take for lunch during the week.  The recipe calls for the chicken salad to be served on whole-grain bread, but I decided to use whole-grain tortillas instead and make wraps.  You do whatever makes you happy as well.

I also didn’t purposely post two recipes with rosemary this week, it just somehow happened!  This chicken salad does call for fresh rosemary, and I think in something such as a salad fresh herbs really make a difference.  But if you can’t get it, just use one-third as much of the dried stuff.  As far as the chicken goes, I just browned mine in the skillet, then chopped it up.  And I couldn’t find smoked almonds, so I just bought sliced almonds and toasted them.
