Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

Lighter, healthier and less carbs! We use Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise and we top them into lettuce wraps instead of bread. LESS CALORIES yet same amazing taste. You won’t notice a difference, except your smaller waistline!

Are we still doing this New Year, New You thing?

Because I added some bacon to these lettuce wraps.

But then again, I got rid of the carbs.

So, the bacon should be okay, right?

We always said that we needed balance.

I also swapped out half the mayo here and substituted with Greek yogurt.

So then, yes, the bacon can stay put.

I mean, we still need a little something to keep us going.

I just made this tonight and YUM! My husband and toddlers loved it too. The chicken salad is probably the best I’ve ever had… the fresh lemon and basil (i used dry since I didn’t have fresh) bring it over the top and I couldn’t get enough. I just wish I had doubled the recipe!

I love this recipe. It is something I look forward to eating at lunch. What can I say except that it tastes great!
