Avocado Chicken Lettuce Wraps

If you’re constantly on the lookout for lunch ideas that don’t involve bread, then you’ll love this idea. These avocado chicken lettuce wraps are fresh and delicious, and are also a great way to use up cooked chicken from last night’s dinner. And best of all, you get the feel of a sandwich or wrap without all the carbs.

What You Need:

-4-6 romaine lettuce leaves (cleaned and dried)
-1 medium avocado
-1/2 lemon or lime (for juice)
-1 cup cooked chicken, shredded or cubed
-1 roma tomato (or handful of grape tomatoes)
-2 tbsp chopped onion
-1/4 bell pepper, diced
-Salt, pepper and garlic powder, to taste

What You Do:

  1. Slice avocado in half, remove the pit and scoop out flesh into a small mixing bowl. Mash avocado with a fork until it’s smooth.
  2. Squeeze some of your lemon or lime juice into the bowl and mix to combine with avocado. (This will add flavor and help prevent avocado from browning prematurely).
  3. Sprinkle salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste into the avocado mixture. Mix well.
  4. Stir in the remainder of the ingredients (minus the lettuce). Combine until chicken, tomatoes, onion and pepper are evenly coated with avocado.
  5. Scoop mixture into romaine leaves, wrap loosely and enjoy.
