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 or keto 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 gluten-free, Paleo, 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 Avocado Oil Mayo by Chosen Foods or Primal Kitchen.  Both use simple, clean ingredients and one of them is usually available at Costco.
  • Whole30? No problem! Both of the avocado oil mayo options above are also Whole30-compliant, so all you have to do is choose bacon that is Whole30 compliant, as well. Olive You Whole provides a helpful list of Whole30 compliant bacon that you can find by clicking here.
  • You will 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’…

Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken breasts (about 2 breasts), cooked
  • 1 head of romaine lettuce
  • 10-12 slices bacon, cooked
  • 5 roma tomatoes, sliced
  • 3/4 cup mayo
  • 2 avocados

Instructions

  1. If you are not using leftover chicken and bacon, roast the chicken breasts at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes and cook the bacon until done. Set aside.

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

  3. 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.

  4. Pull the romaine lettuce leaves off the head of romaine lettuce until you have about 10 good leaves.

  5. 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).
