Ideal for a light lunch or a quick dinner, these lettuce wraps are packed with flavor and easy to prepare.



For the Chicken Salad:

  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded or chopped
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Wraps:

  • 8 large lettuce leaves (such as romaine, iceberg, or butter lettuce)



Prepare the Chicken Salad:

  1. Combine Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine the cooked chicken, crumbled bacon, diced avocado, cherry tomatoes, and red onion.
  2. Make the Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, and fresh dill (if using). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Mix Together: Pour the dressing over the chicken mixture and gently toss until everything is well coated. Adjust seasoning if necessary.

Assemble the Lettuce Wraps:

  1. Prepare the Lettuce: Wash and dry the lettuce leaves thoroughly. Lay them flat on a clean surface.
  2. Fill the Wraps: Spoon the chicken salad mixture evenly onto the center of each lettuce leaf.
  3. Wrap and Serve: Fold the sides of the lettuce leaf over the filling and roll up from the bottom to form a wrap. Serve immediately.



  • Freshness: Use fresh, crisp lettuce leaves for the best texture. Butter lettuce is especially good for wrapping due to its pliability.
  • Meal Prep: The chicken salad can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Assemble the wraps just before serving to keep the lettuce crisp.
  • Add Crunch: For added crunch, sprinkle some chopped nuts, such as almonds or pecans, over the chicken salad before wrapping.



  • Greek Chicken Salad Wraps: Substitute the mayonnaise with Greek yogurt and add cucumber, olives, and feta cheese for a Mediterranean twist.
  • Spicy Chicken Salad Wraps: Add a teaspoon of sriracha or your favorite hot sauce to the dressing for a spicy kick.
  • Turkey Salad Wraps: Use cooked turkey instead of chicken for a different flavor profile.


BLTA Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps are a delightful and healthy alternative to traditional sandwiches. Packed with flavors and textures from the bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado, these wraps offer a satisfying meal without the extra carbs. Perfect for a quick lunch or dinner, they are easy to make and can be customized to suit your taste preferences. Enjoy the freshness and convenience of these delicious lettuce wraps!
