Chicken Club Lettuce Wrap Recipe

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!

  1. It starts with chicken, which can be barbecued, baked or even rotisserie, or use my easy stovetop grilling method. If you have some of my easy slow cooker shredded chicken on hand, this is a perfect use for it.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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)
  • Romaine
  • Iceberg

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.

  1. My Babe insisted on grilling the chicken while turning up the (spice) heat…I was happy to acquiesce…I made the dressing according to the recipe…wow! So good! Teamwork makes the dream work! This was fabulous with our spicy twist.
