BLTA Chicken Lettuce Wraps - Low-Carb, Paleo, Dairy-free, Gluten-free

Thursday, June 01, 2017

These BLTA Chicken Lettuce Wraps combine all of the flavors of a mouth-watering BLT but without the bread, for those who can't or don't eat bread! Not only are these super easy to prepare, they're gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, egg-free, Paleo / Primal, low-carb and keto.
 
I love BLT sandwiches. I can't help it! The fresh tomatoes and crisp lettuce marry perfectly with the salty bacon, gooey mayo and chewy bread. It's a perfect combination.
 
The problem is that a lot of people can't eat bread. Some have food allergies or avoid grains all together for health reasons, while others avoid bread as part of a low-carb diet. Whatever the reason, bread is the food people usually miss the most while following a restrictive diet.
 
Enter this BLTA Chicken Lettuce Wrap. It's not only gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free (depending on the type of mayo used), it's also Paleo / Primal, low-carb and keto, meaning that even if you can't or don't eat bread, you can still enjoy the flavors of a BLT. That is cause for celebration, my friends!

  • To make these BLTA chicken lettuce wraps, I use romaine lettuce. You could use butter lettuce or regular leaf lettuce, but I prefer romaine because it makes BLTA wraps that are easy to pick up and eat. 
  • I used leftover bacon and roasted chicken for this recipe, but you could also buy and cook bacon and boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs. Just shred or chop the chicken and add mayo.
  • Speaking of mayo, I love Just Mayo by Hampton Creek. It's non-GMO and vegan, but it's also just darn good mayo, which is essential for a good BLT! It's not Paleo, though. For the Paleo option, I recommend Chosen Foods Paleo Mayo.
  • You also need good quality bacon and ripe, flavorful tomatoes and avocados to make a crazy good BLTA Chicken Wrap. Good ingredients make good food. Just sayin'...

Gluten-free | Grain-free | Dairy-free | Egg-free | Paleo | Primal | Low-Carb | Keto

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 0-30 minutes (depending on if you are using leftovers or not)
Total Time: 15-45 minutes

Ingredients


-          1 lb chicken breasts (about 2 breasts)
-          1 head of romaine lettuce
-          10-12 slices bacon, cooked
-          5 roma tomatoes, sliced
-          ¾ cup mayo
-          2 avocados

Directions


If you are not using leftover chicken and bacon, roast the chicken breasts and cook the bacon until done. Set aside.

Shred or chop the cooked chicken. Add the mayo and mix until well combined.

Prepare the avocados by cutting each avocado in half, removing the seed and scooping the flesh out of the skin. Slice lengthwise into pieces about ¼ inch thick and set aside.

Pull the romaine lettuce leaves off the head of romaine lettuce until you have about 10 good leaves. Slice the tomatoes and lay 2-3 slices of tomato on each leaf of lettuce (2 for a small leaf, 3 for a large leaf). Add 1-2 pieces of bacon to each leaf of lettuce followed by 2-3 slices of avocado and ¼ - ½ cup of chicken (¼ cup for small leaf, ½ cup for large leaf).

That’s it, this recipe is super easy. Enjoy!
