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 love the crisp bite of the lettuce!
How to make Chicken Club Lettuce Wraps
The recipe is so simple, I can hardly call it a recipe!
The perfect club of course has lots of fresh tomato and avocado, and creamy Dijon mustard. To make the Dijon sauce, simply mix 1 part Dijon mustard with 1 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. Wash the lettuce leafs and carefully spin in a salad spinner or pat them dry so they don’t break.
It’s fun to eat, and can get a little messy, so be sure to have the napkins handy.
What is the best lettuce for lettuce wraps?
A crisp lettuce is the best because you want the leaves to be sturdy enough to hold up to the filling. My favorites are:
Boston (Bibb) Lettuce (my personal preference)
How to store lettuce and keep it fresh
When you bring home a head of lettuce, be sure to cut the wire or string off first. Wrap the entire head of lettuce in a paper towel and store in a plastic bag. When you’re ready to use, cut or peel off what you need and wrap the rest in a paper towel and return to the bag.
