Curried Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

Gotcha Covered with Bibb or Butter and Romaine Lettuce Wraps. They're a healthy alternative to flour tortilla shells or corn taco shells with less carbs and easy to roll with filling tucked inside to make a great wrap.

Greek yogurt was substituted for part of the mayonnaise and romaine lettuce used instead of bread. Less calories and you won’t notice a difference. A bacon splurge is optional. Make the salad early in the day for flavors to meld. This recipe serve 4 and was adapted from dammdelicioius.net

  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4-6 Romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1 cup Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 avocado, halved, peeled, seeded and diced
Directions:
  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine chicken, mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, celery, onions, spices, lemon juice and Dijon; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • To serve, spoon several tablespoons of the chicken mixture into the center of a lettuce leaf, taco-style, garnished with bacon, tomato and avocado, if desired.
