I lovvvvve these Sweet Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps! They're my new go-to quick & healthy lunch staple and they take almost no time at all to cook and throw together. You can even meal prep these in advance to have ready for the week! Then all you do is scoop some on your lettuce and voila! I prefer using lettuce wraps as they're great way to keep your carb intake down (and in my opinion tastes the best!), but you can always swap the lettuce for a tortilla wrap instead. I hope you love this recipe as much as I do! If so, feel free to share!


Ingredients

  • 4 cups cooked all-natural chicken, shredded (approx. 1.5 - 2 lbs)
  • 1 cup organic celery, chopped (make sure to include the celery leaves, chopped)
  • 1 cup red seedless organic grapes, halved
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries (aka craisins)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise or Greek Yogurt (I used Hellmann's Olive Oil mayo)
  • Romaine lettuce 
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (I use pink Himalayan sea salt)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


Directions

1. Boil the chicken until fully cooked. I don't like chicken salad hot so if I plan on serving it right away, I'll rinse the chicken off with cold water in a strainer for a minute to cool it.

2. I then shred the chicken in a food processor (if you don't have one, you can shred it by hand in a large bowl using two forks).

3. In a large bowl, add the shredded chicken, along with the celery (and the leaves), grapes, dried cranberries, mayo, salt and pepper. Stir together until combined and it's ready to serve!

Healthy Tips:
  • To keep my carb intake low, I love using romaine lettuce for this wrap but you can use soft tortillas if you prefer, or even bread, crackers, pita chips... just about anything!
  • To lighten up the recipe, you can use Greek yogurt in place of the mayonnaise.
