Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps (Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free)

by Bethany Kutz | Jun 28, 2016 | dairy free, Diet, Recipes

Lunch has always been one of my least favorite meals to make. It’s an interruption to the day, and it takes way too much time trying to think of what to make, then making it, then eating it…Perhaps that’s just because feeding a family of 11 lunch takes forever regardless, but perhaps not. Does anyone else feel that way? If you have a solution, I’m all ears!

Anyway, there are some days where I luck out and come up with a healthy, tasty meal that is simple and easy to make. I had one of those moments a few weeks ago when I created this chicken salad lettuce wrap.

We’ve eaten chicken salad in sandwiches or on crackers for as long as I can remember. (We made the switch from tuna to shredded chicken awhile ago when we learned about the mercury in tuna.) It’s ridiculous that I hadn’t thought of this combination sooner. Nevertheless, I have now and I am so happy I did! They are delicious, light, and can be whipped up for the whole family in less than 15 minutes. Beautiful, right?

Chicken Salad

Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

Serves: 4  Time: 15 minutes


  • 2 Cups of Cooked, Shredded Chicken
  • ½ C Avocado Mayonnaise (or Mayo of your preference)
  • Dash of Salt
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Optional:
  • Tomatoes
  • Black Olives
  • Avocado
  • Walnuts


In a medium size bowl, mix together the chicken and mayo until thoroughly combined. If it isn’t creamy enough, feel free to add in a spoonful more of mayo. Add salt to taste.

Pull off some medium to large lettuce leaves, and fill with the chicken salad (like a taco). Chop up some tomatoes, black olives and whatever else you can think of and sprinkle on top.

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

Darrell is highly knowledgeable and really gets to the root of the problem. Unlike a lot of doctors, Darrell doesn't just throw prescriptions at issues. He will test and test - digging for the cause and then working on fixing the issue. He and his staff are professional, courteous, and a joy to be around.

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
