Hello Nap Time readers! I’m back again with a delicious recipe that’s a perfect fresh & healthy choice for a cool summer supper – Chicken Club Lettuce Wraps!

Lettuce wraps can be low carb, low calorie and grain or gluten free, depending on the toppings you choose. This chicken club wrap has grilled chicken, tomatoes, avocado, bacon and a creamy Dijon sauce to give it a little kick. There are so many possibilities and options for lettuce wraps – you could have a different recipe every day. They don’t require much prep work, and offer a filling alternative to traditional calorie laden sandwiches or tortilla wraps, plus I just love the crisp bite of the lettuce! Want more options? Check out the 25 lettuce wraps I’m sharing today over on Yellow Bliss Road.

My kids are huge fans of these lettuce wraps too. They love salad, and just lettuce in general. When we’re at a restaurant, my son will take the lettuce garnish from my plate and dip it in his ranch dressing and just eat the whole thing! So this is definitely a perfect meal for when I need something quick and that my kids will eat without complaints.

The recipe is so simple, I can hardly call it a recipe! It starts with chicken, which can be barbecued, baked or even rotisserie, or use my easy stovetop grilling method. The perfect club of course has lots of fresh tomato and avocado, and creamy Dijon mustard. To make the Dijon sauce, simply mix one part Dijon mustard with one part sour cream, and add a few turns of fresh cracked pepper. I really, really like simple! For the lettuce I prefer iceberg or Romaine, but any crisp lettuce would work. Just carefully peel away the outer layers to the smaller layers underneath.

    Looks and sounds delicious! Lately I’ve been using the outer leaves of cabbage for my wraps because they’re a little bit sturdier. And I could probably eat that dressing by the spoonful!
