Low Salicylate Chicken Wraps

by | Apr 16, 2022

After a full day of adventures, too tired to cook, Dan and I will invariably look at each other and know exactly what the other one is thinking…chicken wraps. Wonderfully easy to prepare, a bit of a sautée here, a couple of grates there and bam, you’ve got yourself a simple, albeit satisfying meal.

Along with being super quick to whip up, this meal is also perfect for encouraging intuitive eating with little ones, empowering them to choose what and how much to put in their plate (our little guy is all about the cheese and chicken combo at the moment!). And finally, wraps are great for those who don’t have an issue with salicylates, as they can add in any ingredient that tickles their fancy (nope, not jelly at all about your chili hot sauce Dan!).

Low Salicylate Chicken Wraps

Serves 4



  • Grater
  • Peeler
  • Cutting board and knife



4 chicken thigh fillets

2 Tbsp sunflower oil

Pinch salt

2 carrots (grated)*

1 cup tasty cheese (grated)

Large handful of green beans (chopped)

2 cups iceberg lettuce (shredded)

1/4 cup chives

1/2 cup cream cheese

8 flour tortilla wraps

Homemade hummus (for spreading)



1.) Slice chicken thighs into bite sized chunks.

2.) Heat half the oil in frypan. Place chicken pieces into pan, sprinkle with salt and cook for 7 minutes without moving them around. Flip chicken pieces over. Add remainder of the oil to frypan and continue to cook 7 more minutes until golden brown, or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 75 degrees celsius. Place cooked chicken into a serving bowl and put aside to rest for 5 minutes.

3.) While chicken is resting, place carrot, tasty cheese, green beans, chives and cream cheese into individual serving bowls.

4.) Place tortillas in microwave and heat for 45 seconds. Place warm tortillas onto a serving plate.

5.) Place all ingredients onto table and invite everyone to make up their own wraps.

*Carrots are listed in the RPAH handbook as moderate in salicylates, something to be mindful of if you’re very sensitive or looking to limit your chemical load. Kęszycka et al. 2017 however list carrot as low, so I’ve included them here. Just be mindful when trying the recipe for the first time.

If you are able to tolerate any medium salicylate foods, you might like to include some peeled cucumber for added diversity.
