I’m all about making lunch quick and easy. Wraps are a great solution because you can often pre-make the filling for a few days in advance.
I like to call this a “spa” lettuce wrap because it has a rich and luxe taste (from the greek yogurt which mimics sour cream), but it’s also super light! The apples and honey offer a sweetness and sunflower seeds pack an extra punch of fiber.
Enjoy this for lunch at home or at work!
Recipe: Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps
4 to 6 romaine lettuce leaves
1 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon honey
1 garlic clove, chopped
3 tablespoons plain yogurt or dairy-free almond milk yogurt
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 apple, chopped
2 cups cooked chicken breast, chopped
2 teaspoons basil
- Place the lettuce leaves to the side. Add the remaining ingredients to a large bowl and mix well. Fill each of the lettuce leaves with 1 to 2 tablespoons of chicken salad and serve.
