Low-Carb Chicken & Cheddar Lettuce Wraps

This fresh, crunchy wrap sandwich is brimming with vegetables, yet still delivers a satisfying amount of protein thanks to the chicken and cheese. Crisp iceberg lettuce is what keeps this wrap sandwich ultra low in carbs (just 4 grams per serving). The hardest part of this 10-minute recipe is rolling the sandwich, but our parchment paper trick makes it infinitely simpler.

  • 1 tablespoon canola mayonnaise

  • 1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard

  • 5 iceberg lettuce leaves

  • 3 ounces rotisserie chicken breast, shredded

  • 2 tomato slices

  • ½ cup alfalfa sprouts (1/2 oz.)

  • ½ (4 ounce) cucumber, sliced

  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced red onion

  • 1 (2-oz.) sharp Cheddar cheese slice


  1. Stir together mayonnaise and mustard in a small bowl; set aside. Stack iceberg lettuce leaves on a large piece of parchment paper. Shingle leaves from left to right while stacking to create an 8- x 9-inch rectangle, with 9-inch side facing you.

  2. Spread mayonnaise mixture on lower half of iceberg leaves, making sure to spread all the way to the edges. Place chicken in center of mayonnaise mixture. Top with tomato slices, sprouts, cucumber slices, onion slices and cheese slice.

  3. Using parchment as a guide and starting with side closest to you, roll into a tight log. Once completely rolled, roll remainder of parchment around lettuce. Cut in half, and serve.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
