Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

February 19, 2018Teresa

Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps are just so awesome. This is absolutely one of my favorite ways to eat Chicken Salad. I can gobble these wraps up in nothing flat! There is something about topping my favorite Chicken Salad recipe with mild banana pepper rings. The combination of flavors is just so scrumptious. Just that little bit of extra bite makes these wraps to die for! I also pared off a couple of hundred calories because I rolled the chicken salad in lettuce leaves rather than spreading it on bread. These crunchy wraps are just out-of-this-world good!

My chicken salad is quite crunchy because I add red bell pepper, celery and red onion. It’s flavored with sweet pickle relish (I try to find a healthier one without high fructose corn syrup) and mayonnaise. I used to use Miracle Whip but it contains HFCS so I’ve stopped using it. You can use leftover rotisserie chicken or some chicken from cooking off a whole chicken (which is what I did). Plop some chicken salad in a large red or green leaf lettuce leaf. Add two or three mild pepper rings (patted dry) and then roll up and secure with toothpicks.

If you’re looking for a terrific way to have a healthy lunch, Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps fill the bill! These wraps are gluten free and a much healthier option than eating this on bread, croissants or pita bread. I made several of them and refrigerated them for later. Then I pulled them out as needed for lunches later in the week. These wraps can be a little messier than serving on bread, but oh, so worth it. I could eat a hundred of ’em. 🙂

I used these ingredients. I recommend finding the largest leaves of lettuce possible to make it easier to roll the lettuce.
