Our rule of thumb in the Brooks’ household is to have a pretty light lunch.
However, sometimes that can get boring and just blah.
So, I have been racking my brain trying to come up with different lunch ideas and I came up with this one!
A BLT lettuce wrap, but with the addition of some chicken, makes for a perfect light and healthy lunch!
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
- 5 strips of bacon, cooked and diced
- 1/4 cup green onions, chopped finely
- 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- large lettuce leaves for serving, I used romaine lettuce
- In a large mixing bowl, add shredded chicken. *Rotisserie chicken works great in this recipe!*
- Add in the chopped bacon, green onions, tomatoes, mayonnaise, and black pepper.
- Stir to evenly coat the chicken and vegetables, adding more mayonnaise if the mixture seems a little dry.
- Serve with lettuce leaves and use the chicken salad as a filling.
- BLT Chicken Salad can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 days.
