Can you believe summer is almost over? My kids start back to school on August 16th. We anticipate very busy schedules this year so we are already starting to plan for the upcoming school year by shopping at Walmart. One thing we make a priority during the school year is packing lunches daily. Sandwiches each day can get old quick, so we are always looking for fresh ideas. These Quick & Easy Chicken Salad Pinwheels are a big hit among all of our kids.

To start you need to toss together the chicken salad that you’ll be using in your pinwheels.
Quick & Easy Chicken Salad Pinwheels Ingredients
- 1 can of Swanson® Premium Chicken
- 2 tablespoons of pickle relish
- 3 tablespoons of mayo
- Flour tortillas
Once you open the can of Swanson® Premium Chicken you’ll want to shred the chunks finely. This can be done quickly using a fork.
Since Swanson® Premium Chicken is already cooked and ready to use for quick and everyday meals, it is perfect for our quick & easy chicken salad. It is a great way to get a low fat and heart healthy meal made for school lunches.
Now mix together your pickle relish and mayo until it is evenly distributed throughout your chicken.
In our regular chicken salad we add grapes, apples and celery. However, with this version we keep it simple since we are rolling it into pinwheels. You don’t want large chunks to keep it from rolling tight.
Quick Tip: I use a rolling pin to flatten the flour tortilla as much as possible. This also helps even it out if there are any thicker areas on the tortilla.
Spread your chicken salad across your tortilla, avoiding the last inch of one side. Start rolling from the side of the tortilla where the chicken salad comes to the edge.
Roll tight without pushing the chicken salad out.
Wrap your rolled chicken salad filled tortilla and place in the refrigerator. By allowing it to cool it will help hold the rolled tortilla in place. You can make these the night before school and let them chill overnight. Then before packing in their lunchbox you can unroll the wrap and slice into pinwheels.
We serve them alongside Pace® for dipping. The genuine southwest flavor adds a nice richness to your chicken salad pinwheels. Plus, who doesn’t love dipping their food?
When packing your teen’s lunch you can pour a small amount of Pace® in a small closed container, it is delicious served both cold and at room temperature. Made with handpicked vegetables, Pace® is good as an ingredient in cooking and as a condiment that will add a kick to your recipe.
We serve V8 Splash® for a deliciously fruity, wonderfully refreshing drink. We fill reusable bottles with ice and V8 Splash® Strawberry Lemonade for the teens to carry to school. Packed with a good source of essential antioxidant vitamin C and made with real fruit, it’s an option I feel good about.
