In a lunchtime rut? It's time to kick that PB&J sandwich to the curb with these exciting, protein-packed chicken wrap sandwich recipes. Whether you go with chicken Parm Crunchwraps, chicken shawarma, or copycat chicken lettuce wraps, all of these chicken wrap recipes will keep you going all day.

It's way too easy to fall into a rut when making up sandwiches, but what's easier is shaking up your routine with a few simple swaps. Switching up your chicken marinades and swapping out that loaf of bread for naan, pita bread, or tortillas will help you steer clear of sad sandwich territory. We think you might find yourself craving these wraps (especially our cheesy baked burritos) for dinner too.

We can't get over how simply just changing up how you fold your wraps makes them all the more delicious and fun to eat. We can thank TikTok for inspiring our chicken taco tortilla hack and Taco Bell (of course) for our Buffalo chicken Crunchwraps.

Looking for something on the lighter side? We've got plenty of chicken lettuce wrap recipes that are healthy yet incredibly satisfying, like sweet chili chicken lettuce cups and peanut sesame chicken lettuce cups. If you're on a keto diet, you'll dig our keto chicken salad recipe too.

Hungry for more? Try all our favorite burrito and quesadilla (the OG wraps) recipes. We even have plenty of soups, salads, and sides to serve alongside all your favorite chicken wraps, and the best lunch containers to keep your food fresh all day.

Copycat Chicken Lettuce Wraps

In our attempt to copy the fan favorite from P.F. Chang's, we flavored ground chicken with hoisin sauce (a fermented bean paste that gives the chicken the quintessential Chinese-American flavor), soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sriracha, and sesame oil. Water chestnuts add a nice crunch here too.

Chicken Quesadilla

You don't really need a recipe to make this insanely popular Mexican dish. Top a tortilla with cheese (and whatever else you've got), then fold it in half and cook until the tortilla is crispy and the cheese is melty. But if you're looking for some guidance, especially in cooking some quick and easy chicken to stuff inside, this recipe won't let you down.

Peanut-Sesame Chicken Lettuce Cups

These flavor-packed peanut-sesame chicken lettuce cups are as simple as it gets for a weeknight dinner. For the juiciest, most tender shredded chicken, try to pick breasts that are similar in size, so they cook at roughly the same rate, then toss in the peanut sauce while hot for maximum flavor absorption.

Chicken Shawarma

Shawarma refers to the Middle Eastern method of cooking where thin slices of meat are stacked on a vertical rotating spit in front of a fire or other heat source. The outside meat is slowly cooked and then shaved off to serve. Our version varies a little by being baked in the oven but still mimics the traditional tender, juicy, and well-spiced meat.

Keto Chicken Salad

We firmly believe that all chicken salads would benefit from crispy bacon, and this easy keto version is proof. The dressing is tangy, and with added avocado, it's a perfect chicken salad. Serve it on lettuce or some keto cloud bread.

Lemon Chicken Wraps

When you consider the charred lemony kebabs, the creamy sriracha sauce, and the fluffy flatbread, it's easy to understand why we're so obsessed with these. If you don't have time to marinate the chicken, season it with Italian seasoning, garlic powder (instead of cloves), salt, and pepper, then squeeze lemon juice over it once it's cooked.
