My Thoughts on this Recipe

These Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps from Damn Delicious are so tasty! I love that they have greek yogurt in them, and the basil adds the most delicious flavor! I also think it is so fun to do the toppings of the tomatoes, avocado and bacon. I would have never thought of doing that on chicken salad lettuce wraps!


The main ingredients are: chicken, mayonnaise, greek yogurt, celery, green onion, basil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, Romaine lettuce, and other toppings. View the full recipe here.


This recipe is quick to put together, and I made it earlier in the day so the flavors could meld. I would recommend doing that if you have the time, but if not, I’m sure these wraps will still be delicious.

I did not fry the bacon. When I need crumbled bacon, I put about three paper towels on a large plate, place the bacon on top, and top with two more paper towels. Then I microwave it for about 4.5 – 5 minutes. It comes out perfectly crispy, and the paper towels absorb all of the grease!

I also recommend using the toppings because they add a lot of flavor to the dish. I served these with the Rainbow Corn Salad, and they went nicely together since they both had the basil running through the dishes.

Future Ideas/Variations

This recipe is great just the way that it is. Luckily Chicken Salad is versatile, and you can really add the ingredients that you like. I loved the basil, but you could certainly swap it out for tarragon and add whatever vegetables make you happy.

Final thoughts

This is perfect for a quick, easy weeknight meal that is filling and cool for the summer!
