I stumbled upon this gem of a recipe on The Whole Cook, and it's like discovering a treasure chest of nutritious and scrumptious delights. Trust me; you'll want to save this one for your next meal!

As an experienced chef with more than five years of culinary adventures, I've always appreciated dishes that balance health and taste. And these grilled avocado chicken wraps are a prime example of that balance. Let's dive into the flavors and steps together:

Ingredients:

For the Grilled Chicken:

- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (because we're going for a protein-packed filling)

- Olive oil (for drizzling)

- Salt and black pepper (to season)

- Paprika (for that smoky flavor)

- Ground cumin (for a hint of earthiness)

- Chili powder (for a touch of heat)

- Garlic powder (because garlic makes everything better)

For the Avocado Salsa:

- 2 ripe avocados (diced)

- 1 cup cherry tomatoes (halved)

- 1/2 red onion (finely chopped)

- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro (chopped, for that burst of freshness)

- Juice of 2 limes (for that zesty kick)

- Salt and black pepper (to taste)

For Assembling:

- Large lettuce leaves (for wrapping)

- Greek yogurt or sour cream (for a creamy drizzle)

- Additional lime wedges (for that extra zing)

Instructions:

1. Let's kick things off with the grilled chicken. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. While it's heating up, brush the chicken breasts with a bit of olive oil. This helps them get those beautiful grill marks.

2. In a small bowl, mix together the salt, black pepper, paprika, ground cumin, chili powder, and garlic powder. This is your flavorful seasoning mix.

3. Sprinkle the seasoning mix generously over both sides of the chicken breasts. Make sure they're well-coated with all that deliciousness.

4. Grill the chicken for about 6-7 minutes on each side or until they're cooked through. You'll know they're ready when the internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C) and they have those irresistible grill marks.

5. While the chicken is grilling, let's prepare the avocado salsa. In a mixing bowl, combine the diced avocados, halved cherry tomatoes, finely chopped red onion, chopped cilantro, lime juice, salt, and black pepper. Give it all a good toss to marry those flavors.

6. Once the chicken is done, remove it from the grill and let it rest for a minute or two. Then, slice it into thin strips.

7. Now, it's time to assemble these mouthwatering wraps. Take a large lettuce leaf (you can use butter lettuce or romaine), place a few strips of grilled chicken in the center, and top it with the avocado salsa.

8. Drizzle some Greek yogurt or sour cream on top for that creamy goodness, and if you want an extra kick of zing, squeeze a lime wedge over it all.

9. Fold the sides of the lettuce leaf over the filling, like a burrito, and you're ready to take a big, satisfying bite.

And there you have it, my dear foodies - Grilled Avocado Chicken Wraps that are not only bursting with flavor but also incredibly healthy. The grilled chicken, paired with the creamy avocado salsa and the freshness of lettuce, makes for a perfect bite.
