These chicken club lettuce wraps are a quick and easy lunch idea made with only a few ingredients! They’re low carb, low calorie and grain and gluten-free.
Lettuce wraps are always a great option whenever I’m trying to eat healthier. They taste so delicious that you won’t even miss the carbs. These chicken bacon lettuce wraps are a favorite, as well as PF Chang’s lettuce wraps, taco lettuce wraps and cashew chicken lettuce wraps.
I’m back again with a delicious recipe that’s a perfect fresh and healthy choice for a cool summer supper – chicken club lettuce wraps! Each wrap is loaded with grilled chicken, tomatoes, avocado, bacon and a creamy Dijon sauce to give it a little kick. They’re fun to eat, and can get a little messy, so be sure to have the napkins handy.
I love lettuce wraps because they can be low carb, low calorie and grain or gluten-free, depending on the toppings you choose. 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!
My kids are huge fans of these chicken bacon 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.
To assemble the wraps, you need:
This recipe is so simple, I can hardly call it a recipe! It starts with chicken, which can be grilled, baked or even rotisserie, or use my easy crockpot shredded chicken. The perfect club, of course, has lots of fresh tomato and avocado, and creamy Dijon mustard.
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.
- Cooked chicken
- Avocado slices
- Crumbled bacon
- Dijon mustard
- Sour cream
How to make a lettuce wrap sandwich
Make the Dijon sauce
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!
Assemble the chicken club wraps
Begin to assemble the wraps by diving the ingredients between four lettuce leaves. I like to add the chicken first, then the avocado, tomatoes, bacon and Dijon sauce.
