Greek Chicken Lettuce Wraps

New year, new lettuce wrap. I think I’ve officially made this a January thing on this blog considering I’ve made them a lot in Januaries past like these, these, and these. Obviously, I go for low-carb options this time of year!

But, seriously, I adore lettuce wraps! They offer a great alternative to salads when you want to change things up. And of my most favorite salads is a good Greek salad. So why not make it into a lettuce wrap?!

These wraps don’t necessarily require any cooking. I used leftover chicken I had cooked the night before so you can grill extra or you could also use a rotisserie chicken.

The rest of the prep is simple. Just dice up from tomatoes, cucumber, and red onion. Toss in some olives (I used black because that’s what I had in my pantry) and crumbed feta with the chicken. I drizzled some fresh squeezed lemon juice and salt on top.

You could also spoon some hummus or tzatziki sauce on top for added flavor. Or your favorite Greek-style dressing (or green goddess dressing) works good too! These are the perfect light and delicious low-carb lunch!

  1. One more tweak to my salads…

    I love all the ingredients and how great the dish looks in those pictures.

    Can I skip the olives, please?
