Grilled Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

These grilled chicken salad lettuce wraps are a healthy addition to your lunch. Nuts, grapes, apples and chicken are topped with a honey balsamic vinaigrette.

I read somewhere that Beyonce keeps her curves looking all svelte by eating a diet of grilled chicken breast and steamed vegetables.

I tried that once. For about 12 hours. Can you say boring?!?!

In my attempt to be healthier (and in all honesty, lose 10 pounds and keep it off), I’ve been going to the gym a few times a week and eating a whole lot of boring chicken breast.

The food I eat is no where near as much fun as the food I have been sharing here.  It also doesn’t help when your husband eats the foods you love and you can’t.

Something’s gotta give!

Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps with Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

I grilled up some chicken breasts and I turned them into these grilled chicken salad lettuce wraps.

They’re full of protein and fruit, and light on carbs thanks to the lettuce wraps. (Another great lettuce wrap – these slow cooker chicken taco lettuce wraps!)

Sure, you can put this chicken salad on some wheat bread or tortillas but eating them this way is so much healthier.

I mixed up all the ingredients with a delicious honey balsamic vinaigrette. It is pretty sweet but the lettuce helps even that taste out a bit. You can also decrease the amount of honey if tastes too sweet to you.

If you want to roll them up, just give yourself enough lettuce. I tend to eat mine with a fork and knife.

These lettuce wraps look fantastic and I personally like the grilled chicken salad lettuce wrap! I love how everything looks like they're placed in a cute little green basket. I might be experimenting on a few Filipino dishes and do the same with lettuce wrapping them. Thank you so much for these ideas!
