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!
Chicken Club Lettuce Wraps
Crisp, cool and delicious, I love lettuce wraps! 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. You may also like this BLT Lettuce Wrap, these Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps and these Steak Taco Lettuce Wraps, for more lettuce wrap ideas.
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
- 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"
- 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.

What is W30? It sounds delicious and plan to try it.
It was a little bit of a disaster and you can find wraps that are 50 calories and loaded with good stuff like flax and chia that work better and are sturdier than the lettuce.
if you dont have perfect lettuce leaves then this really doesnt come out or you end up making a mess. if it isnt overly overlapped then the fillings escape and your wrap rips nd if it is too overlapped you have a lettuce burrito.
Good flavors but in my opinion you can skip the lettuce and just do a low cal wrap.
I can’t wait to try these recipes!
Thank you for giving me the chance to receive your recipes
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!.
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).
Lettuce wraps are great and yours looks delicious!
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.
How do you keep your lettuce from going bad?
Clean your lettuce, let dry, put a folded paper towel in bottom of container, add lettuce, put a folded paper towel on top, seal well with lid, lasts 1-2 weeks!
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!
I like this can not wait to give it a try
To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much – but it was quite yummy! Two thumbs up!
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!
Its a kitty recipes are in english language
Are you finding that the low carb during the week is working out pretty well?
This was delicious!
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.
Delish!!! I added onion and mustard…soooo good!!! Thank you Gina!!!
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.
Thank you for the heads up on not making ahead of time!!!
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.
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.
Interesting. How do you make wraps out of spinach?
This looks sooo good! I’m looking forward to trying it.
Might be good
in rice paper spring roll wrapper.
Looks totally awesome…. keto it is!!!!
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.
The paper gets pulled out when you wrap it, it’s not in the wrap.
Make it into a salad if you can’t handle making a lettuce wrap. Geez,
I found the instructions confusing, too. I’ve never had very good luck when making lettuce wraps. The lettuce always cracks a and I end up with a mess.
you literally serve it as if its a burrito: still wrapped up in paper so it doesn’t fall apart.
This didn’t work at all for me. Failed miserably. Hopefully it will work as a salad for lunch tomorrow. 🙁
It takes practice for sure.
What is W30? And how do I look for it on labels? Thanks
Vegenaise is a healthy mayo type. My sister, who loves mayo, gave it her approval.
