Crisp, cool and delicious, I love lettuce wraps! I have been making this BLT Lettuce Wrap for years, a few more favorites are these Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps and these Steak Taco Lettuce Wraps, just to name a few!

Here on Long Island, most bagel stores and delis will actually make you a lettuce wrap replacing the wrap with lettuce and fill it with everything from tuna salad, egg salad, cold cuts, you name it! They wrap it really tight in parchment paper so it’s easy to eat on the go.

I’ve been eating mostly low-carb lately during the week, and saving my carbs for the weekend (80/20) and was craving a chicken club. Usually it’s layered between three slices of toasted white bread, but I’ll be honest, I didn’t miss the bread at all. The Iceburg lettuce gives it lots of crunch, and tastes delish!

How To Make A Lettuce Wrap Sandwich

Rolling the wrap can be tricky the first time, but it gets easier as you go. The trick is to layer the lettuce and fillings on parchment, then use the parchment to guide you and roll all together, tucking the sides in as you roll. Once you roll it, cut the wrap in half with a serrated knife and you are ready to eat! My friend Lexi made a helpful video, I recommend you check it out!

Chicken Club Lettuce Wrap Sandwich, a low-carb (keto) lunch idea that replaces a wheat wrap for a lettuce wrap. Just 5 ingredients, and less than 10 minutes to make!

Ingredients

  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, cored and outer leaves removed
  • 1 tablespoon mayo, I love Sir Kensington (check labels for W30)
  • 3 ounces about 6 slices organic chicken or turkey breast
  • 2 strips center cut bacon, cooked and cut in half (check labels for W30)
  • 2 thin slices tomato
  • 1 piece of parchment paper, about 14" x 14"

Instructions

  • Place the parchment paper down on your work surface.
  • Layer 6 to 7 large leaves of lettuce in the middle of parchment paper so that you create a lettuce base about 9 inches by 10 inches.
  • Spread the mayo in the center of the lettuce wrap.
  • Layer with the chicken or turkey, bacon and tomato.
  • Starting with the end closest to you, roll the lettuce wraps jelly roll style using the parchment as your base as tight as possible.
  • Halfway through rolling, tuck the ends of the wraps towards the middle.
  • Continue to roll the lettuce wrap, keeping it as tight as possible and using the parchment paper to guide you.
  • When it is completely wrapped, roll the remainder of the parchment around the lettuce tightly.
  • Using a serrated knife, cut the lettuce wrap almost completely, leaving a small piece of the parchment intact to help hold it together.

  1. Thank you for giving me the chance to receive your recipes

  2. I just made a lettuce wrap with whole romaine leaves, and it was a little tricky getting the edges folded in, but it worked. I’m not taking the sandwich anywhere except across the room to eat it — LOL — so a tight wrap of paper wasn’t a necessity. I wanted to try this but, alas, had no bacon left in the house, so added a handful of shredded carrots and some salted sunflower seeds, and it was quite satisfying. I’ll do this again, with different fillings. The options are unlimited. OH, the video was a BIG help in seeing how to roll the paper so it stayed on the outside and didn’t become part of the filling!.

  3. I just made this today, and it was delicious. I don’t like mayo by itself, so I used a pesto aioli (half tbsp each of pesto and mayo).

  4. Lettuce wraps are great and yours looks delicious! 

  5. I was struggling with enjoying lettuce wraps until I came across this recipe.  I love the crispness of the iceberg and that you can fill it with anything you are craving at the moment.  Also, it feels like take out because it’s wrapped in paper. 

  6. How do you keep your lettuce from going bad?

  7. This is a perfect lunch item! I used hummus instead of mayo, but the bacon slices made it feel so decadent, while still being a lettuce wrap! I didn’t have parchment paper, so used aluminum foil in its place, and it worked great!

  8. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much – but it was quite yummy! Two thumbs up!

  9. OK, I make this all the time and it’s my favorite…but I just pan fried up a little pastrami that I had gotten in a butcher box and it is NEXT. LEVEL. So good! A nice little change if this recipe is a staple for lunch like it is for me!

  10. Its a kitty recipes are in english language

  11. Are you finding that the low carb during the week is working out pretty well?

  12. This was delicious!

  13. Iceberg is perfect for this – yes, it has no nutritional value, but its crispness makes it a better sub for a carb-heavy tortilla wrap. No nutritional value, but also no carbs. I totally get why it’s used.

  14. Delish!!! I added onion and mustard…soooo good!!! Thank you Gina!!!

  15. Great, but don’t prep in advance! Becomes a soggy mess. Next time, I’ll put ingredients in individual ziplock bags and assemble at my desk.

  16. So easy and convenient, few preparation time needed. Try plating this on a wooden square plate to make it more enticing to your kids (if you’re a mom like me). Just bought it from a thrift store, Innovatronix, on Amazon.

  17. Iceberg lettuce?! It has no nutrients whatsoever.t. I don’t even use any kind of lettuce ever. I use spinach in all my salads or whenever lettuce is part of the recipe.. It works very well and tastes great.

    • Just FYI spinach has little nutritional value until its introduced to heat so eating it raw isn’t doing much for you. It needs to at least be steamed.

  18. This looks sooo good! I’m looking forward to trying it.

  19. Might be good
    in rice paper spring roll wrapper.

  20. Looks totally awesome…. keto it is!!!! 

  21. How are you serving this? I don’t eat paper and your instructions end with leaving a piece of it still wrapped around the whole thing.

  22. This didn’t work at all for me. Failed miserably. Hopefully it will work as a salad for lunch tomorrow. 🙁

  23. What is W30? And how do I look for it on labels? Thanks

  24. Vegenaise is a healthy mayo type.  My sister, who loves mayo, gave it her approval.

  25. Perfect lunch!

  26. I must not be very good at rolling lettuce because this ended up being a knife and fork lunch for me. Very yummy all the same, and I will more than likely make it again! I guess I just need more practice at rolling the lettuce up.

  27. this sounds so good- but I think I’m going to substitute laughing cow cheddar cheese wedge instead of the mayo- 1 point for the cheese!

  28. Love this for a quick, easy, and light lunch! Sure, it might be a little messy until you get used to wrapping them. 😉 If it falls apart, then you have a little salad, but no big deal…still very tasty! Looking forward to making this again with a different type of lettuce, if possible.

  29. YUM!!!!!  Added cheddar cheese.  Delicious

  30. Can anyone recommend a paleo friendly deli meat to use? I want to make these for lunch this week but am struggling to find a paleo friendly main meet unless I cook the chicken myself? Thanks!

  31. Love this for a quick and easy lunch. Still need to get the hang of wrapping up the lettuce, but it worked well enough. Didn’t have time to cook bacon so I just used bacon bits. Thanks and would love to see even more lettuce wrap recipes, I could eat these for lunch every day!

  32. I am wondering this same thing, Tracy!

  33. I wanted to make in advance for weekly lunches.  How many days would this keep in the fridge without getting all soggy?  Or maybe I should pre-prep the pieces and assemble last minute?  Have you tried meal prepping with this?

    • I made this and made the mistake of making 3 in advance. The first one was okay (not fantastic, but edible) the next day. The second and third ones didn’t quite make it through and turned into soggy, watery messes. I’d say your idea of prepping everything before and assembling last minute would be the best.

    • I just did this. Made a few last night and this morning they are all wet. Still good, but next time I will prep the items and just put it together the day of.

  34. Made this today with turkey deli meat.  By using  hormel fully cooked black label bacon from sam’s  (1 sp for 2 slices) and light mayo ( what I had on hand),it came out to 3 SP on freestyle.  It was delicious and filling!!  Thanks for the recipe!

  35. This was so good! Even my 5 year old loved it. Bacon really does make everything taste better! I didn’t opt for the mayo and knew it needed a creamy texture as a replacement so I used avocado.

  36. This was awesome. I didn’t have iceberg lettuce on hand and didn’t want to make trip to store. So I used some green leaf from my garden. I used wax paper since I didn’t have parchment paper. It didn’t quite turn out like the pictures and was a bit messy, but it still was good! I also added some avocado. Next time I’ll use iceberg because of its crispness factor. Thanks for the recipe!

  37. Iceberg Lettuce, Blah! Iceberg has no nutritional value, would be best to substitute it with Romaine

  38. Can you post a video of how you roll it with parchment paper without incorporating the paper into the wrap?

  39. This recipe has been repeat during this heat wave!! Love it I don’t even miss the bread! I use dukes mayo, you can get it on amazon it’s simply the best 

  40. Whole 30

  41. What’s W30?

  42. My son just started the Keto way of life and he is going to LOVE this! Pinned.

  43. Do you mind me asking the type of meat you would use I need these to keep the sodium for a lunch meat.

    Thank you

  44. This was a great quick meal. We had it for a late night dinner after our plans fell through.

  45. I am going to try it with turkey bacon, less points!

    And adding a red o ion would be amazing!

  46. I can’t wait to go buy iceberg lettuce and try these! 🙂

  47. What’s the breakout of the points for this recipe to get to 5?
    Thanks! 🙂

    • I was trying to figure this out myself. 
      Chicken breast or turkey breast is 0 points
      1 Tbsp mayo is 3
      2 slices of Center cut (which is lower fat) bacon is 2 points

      Took me awhile! I used less mayo on mine. 

  48. How many points if not using mayo?

  49. What is “W30”?

  50. I know what I’m making for lunch next week!
    For me, clubs are best with a little thinly sliced red onion so I’m going to roll some red onion up in there 🙂

  51. Could you make this for lunch the night before? 

  52. Made this last night for dinner and it was super yummy. 

  53. This looks delicious!! I’m pregnant and staying away from deli meat but would love to try this recipe. Do you have any quick chicken recipes that would be a good substitute in the wrap? I’m getting sick of eating turkey tacos for lunch 😉

  54. Wonder how this would work with Cabbage?
