Chicken Lettuce Wraps

You can go as simple or as complex as you want with a wrap, from adding leftovers to just sticking to a meat and a low carb olive-oil mayo. In fact, it’s this diversity that makes me love wraps so much.

Plus they are portable. Using a little plastic wrap will keep your creation all ready to go for a couple hours, which is important if you are doing intermittent fasting, and have to wait until 1 pm for your first meal.

Remember that wraps are a little more carb loaded than other meals, so you can certainly get your entire day’s carbs in one wrap. Think about this if you are staying strict to certain percentages of carbs.

That being said, this wrap is not very high on carbs by any means, but it can get that way if you pack in a lot of veggies and avocado… don’t forget that the peanut chicken, marinated in peanut butter brings some carbs in too!

The nice thing is, even being weary of carb intake, the carbs in the recipe aren’t even close to those you get from an actual wrap or sandwich, so don’t stress out about it too much.

directions

ready in: 20 minutes

Slice chicken into small bit sized places and set aside. Combine all ingredients in the marinade and toss the sliced chicken in the marinade. Let it marinade in the fridge for 1-2 hours.

Julliene the carrots and cucumbers and add to a bowl. Cover in pickling ingredients and set aside in fridge.

Once chicken is done marinating add ghee to a medium-high heat pan and add the chicken to the pan. Allow the chicken to cook through and crisp up. This took us about 7-10 minutes.

Transfer chicken from pan to a bowl. Cut the rib out of a swiss chard leaf and cut in half. Layer the two leave over one another. Place 1/4 chicken, 1/4 vegetables, 1/4 sliced avocado and some cilantro (optional) onto one end of the leaf and roll it up, tucking in the side. You can use a tooth pick to reinforce the wrap! Repeat with all the leave until you have four wraps.

Serve with a side of Sriracha or additional peanut sauce. Enjoy!
