Whole30 Lettuce Wrap with Chicken
It’s sandwich week, and we are kicking it off with this Whole30 Lettuce Wrap! I’ve long wanted to master a beautiful and delicious lettuce wrap, and we’ve finally done it! This wrap is so simple to whip together, and although the wrapping takes some practice, I know you can do it. If I can do it, you can too!
What Goes Into Your Whole30 Lettuce Wrap
A lettuce wrap needs to start with a good lettuce for rolling. We used big pieces of iceberg that we overlapped so we could roll it up more easily. Try to keep the pieces big and avoid tears for the best results. Start by setting up your lettuce on parchment paper on a cutting board, then we are ready to load in ingredients.
After you fill the lettuce with the dressing and mustard, you can layer in your fillings. We used thinly sliced chicken breast, which you can either make or buy at the store. Then add in Marinated Onions, avocado, cherry tomatoes, and pepperoncini peppers. Once all your fillings are in there, you are all set to get wrapping!
How to Wrap Your Lettuce Wrap
To wrap the lettuce, carefully, and use both of your hands to begin to roll it up into a wrap. Use the parchment paper to help you roll, but continuously pull the paper out so it doesn’t get folded into the wrap. Fold the edges inward while rolling, until the sandwich is completely wrapped, like a burrito.
It takes some practice, so don’t be afraid to restart. I found that the best thing you can do is get it as tight as possible. It will make it the easiest to eat and enjoy in the end! Even if you don’t get it perfectly on the first try, you will still have a delicious result. It might just be a bit messier.
Once it’s wrapped up, use a serrated knife to cut through the parchment paper and the wrap. Peel away at the parchment paper as you eat so that you can keep all the goodness in the wrap!

This Whole30 Lettuce Wrap with chicken is a perfect lunch on the go! It’s easy to whip together, and it is so satisfying without feeling too heavy.
Parchment paper or wax paper
1 head iceberg lettuce
2 tablespoons Creamy Chive Citrus Dressing
½ to 1 teaspoon Whole30 compatible yellow mustard

½ avocado, thinly sliced
2 to 3 cherry tomatoes, sliced
3 to 4 pepperoncini peppers, whole or sliced
Place a long piece of parchment paper on a flat surface. Cut out the hard core of the iceberg. Carefully separate 4 to 6 large iceberg lettuce leaves and place them flat on the parchment paper, with the edges overlapping and the ends pointing toward the middle.
In the center of the lettuce, spread the Creamy Chive Citrus Dressing and mustard. Layer the chicken breast, marinated red onions, avocado, cherry tomatoes, pepperoncini peppers, and sprinkle a pinch of salt. Make sure everything is centered.
Carefully, and using both of your hands, begin to roll it up into a wrap. Use the parchment paper to help you roll, but continuously pull the paper out. Fold the edges inward while rolling, until the sandwich is completely wrapped, like a burrito. Using a serrated knife, slice the sandwich in half and enjoy!
