Chicken Salad Coconut Flour Tortilla Wrap

We're always making loads of meat stock on GAPS, and that means lots of leftover cooked meat.  We also add egg yolks into our soup to make it more nourishing, and that means lots of leftover egg whites.  This recipe will help you to use some of the boiled chicken and also some of those egg whites.

Chicken Salad

  • 1-1/2 cups boiled chicken, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, coarsely diced
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 2 small ribs celery, coarsely diced
  • Homemade Mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 10 black olives, sliced (optional)
  • 1 avocado, diced (optional)

Add all ingredients together and mix in enough mayonnaise so the chicken is creamy.

At this point, you can eat the Chicken Salad like Tunafish Salad. We often eat this by the bowl, or on a bed of lettuce. If you want to go all out, try making the “tortillas”! 🙂

Coconut Flour [affiliate link] Tortillas or Crepes

Next up, the tortillas.  Okay, I have to admit growing up in Arizona in a neighborhood where Mexican grandmothers made flour tortillas from scratch every day… these are more like crepes… and you cannot fold them up exactly like flour tortillas, but hey, I can't have gluten and these are pretty darned close!

The recipe is simple, and as I mentioned, will help you use up those extra egg whites.  The recipe is from Tropical Traditions. You'll need two egg whites for each tortilla.  Here are the ingredients:

I omitted the baking powder, because it is not recommended on GAPS, and they came out perfectly fine.  They are supposed to be completely flat anyway.

I've tried making the tortillas with coconut milk and with water. The ones with coconut milk for me were a bit thicker, while the ones made with water were thinner and smaller.

Just mix all the ingredients together. I just used my Magic Bullet and I used my cast iron round griddle which I used to make flour tortillas on for 20 years. Heat the griddle and grease it well with butter or coconut oil.

Pour the batter onto the griddle and smooth it around with the back of a spoon until it is smoothed thinly across the griddle in a round shape.

I found a stainless steel pie spatula (as opposed to plastic) worked out really great when it came time to flip as I was able to slip the thin spatula under the tortilla and flip it over.

Be sure to wait until the edges are browned before flipping or the tortilla will break apart on you. If it breaks apart, chances are you didn't wake for it to cook long enough.

You only need to cook it for a few seconds once you flip it over.

My husband thought these were pretty good.  He agreed, not exactly flour tortillas… but a close enough substitute.

    Have you ever tried freezing the tortillas? these look good, and I’d love to make a big batch to just have on hand when needed.

    @Colleen, I have not tried freezing these. I have only made a few of them. I looked at the original post where I found the recipe at Tropical Traditions, and someone there does ask if they can be frozen, but no one has answered. I would have to test and see, but the texture is on the delicate side. I would be concerned about the texture changing after thawing. If you try, let me know! Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment! 🙂

  • Do you think the tortillas would work sans the egg and using chia seeds instead?

    @Erica, hi there. I have no experience with chia seeds. If you experiment, please let me know. Chia seeds are allowed on the full GAPS diet. Thanks for visiting and commenting!

    This looks really delicious I most definitely want to make this recipe this weekend to see if it will go over well with Nito.

    @Charlotte Quevedo, hi there! So good to hear from you! How is Nito doing? Boy I wish we lived closer to each other. I have about two cups of egg whites and I need to make a whole batch of these “tortillas”. I’m also going to try an experiment and see if I make them into smaller sizes, more like corn tortilla shapes if they would fry up like soft shell tacos. I miss soft shelled tacos. 🙂 Let me know how it turns out if you get to try it.
