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!
GRILLED CHICKEN SALAD LETTUCE WRAPS
1 cup Greek yogurt (or low-fat mayo)
4 teaspoons honey
4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 cups diced grilled chicken breasts
1/2 cup crushed almonds
1/2 cup red grapes, sliced in half
1 red apple, diced
iceberg lettuce pieces
To make the salad dressing, combine the mayo/yogurt, honey, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper in a bowl. Whisk together until creamy and well-mixed.
To prepare the salad, combine the chicken, almonds, grapes, apple and salad dressing in a bowl using a wooden spoon. Stir until the ingredients are well coated with the dressing. Let chill for 1 hour in the refrigerator before preparing wraps.
To prepare wraps, put a large piece of iceberg lettuce on a plate. Spoon a generous portion of chicken salad into the wrap.
Optional: roll the lettuce to create a wrap and secure using a toothpick.
