Chunky Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

Chunky Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

This lightly dressed chicken salad is so delicious and satisfying. Although this recipe calls for pre-cooked rotisserie chicken, feel free to use your favorite grilled chicken recipe instead.

TIP: Boston Bibb lettuce is another excellent lettuce variety for this recipe because it has attractive, naturally bowl-shaped leaves.

Yield: 4-6 servings
Total Prep Time: 20 minutes to prepare, plus time for flavors to combine


1 T. real mayonnaise

2 T. Greek yogurt
2 t. Dijon mustard
1 T. red wine vinegar
1 t. garlic powder

2 t. dried oregano
salt and pepper, to taste

12 oz. rotisserie chicken breast, chuck into equal size cubes

Garnish (optional):
chopped fresh parsley

Sliced green onions


In a small glass bowl, combine mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, garlic powder, and oregano. Stir to combine thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.

In a larger non-reactive bowl, combine chicken breast, celery, pecans, grapes, parsley, and green onion. Add dressing and gently stir to combine all ingredients thoroughly. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired.
