Avocado Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

Author - Serena Wolf
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Yields: 4 servings


  • pounds diced chicken breast roughly 3 boneless, skinless breasts
  • ¼ cup finely chopped shallot
  • 12 large lettuce leaves I like Boston, Bibb, or Butter lettuce for this

For the dressing:

  • 1 ripe avocado ideally a medium-sized avocado
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • ½ packed cup fresh basil leaves
  • ¼ cup chopped chives
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • ¼ teaspoon honey or agave
  • Kosher salt
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper optional

For serving: (optional)

  • 1 cup fresh sprouts I prefer spicy sprouts, but any kind of sprouts will do.
  • 1 jalapeño thinly sliced
  • 2-3 baby radishes thinly sliced
  • Lime wedges


  • Start by making the dressing. Place all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Process until very smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl a few times if necessary.
  • Transfer the dressing to a mixing bowl. Add the diced chicken breast and shallot, and toss to combine. Taste and season with a little extra salt and cayenne pepper if necessary.
  • Time to assemble your lettuce wraps! Pile chicken salad onto lettuce leaves. Top with sprouts and garnish with jalapeño and radish slices. Serve with lime wedges and go to town.
