Chicken, Bacon, Avocado Ranch Lettuce Wraps

There’s something simple, flavorful, and fresh about these lettuce wraps. Even though there’s bacon in them, they taste light and fresh. My husband even said he felt like he was eating healthy.

If you wanted to omit the bacon and the ranch, you could. But why would you ever omit bacon from anything! A yummy vinaigrette would be a tasty and more healthy substitute for ranch dressing as well.

When I came up with this, though, I had something BLTA-ish (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, Avocado) stuck in my head. Adding the chicken and avocado makes it more hearty, and perfect for a spring or summer dinner.

How to Make Chicken, Bacon, Avocado, Ranch Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients:

  • 2 chicken breasts or thighs
  • 1/2 beefsteak tomato, diced
  • 1/2 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 lb bacon
  • Ranch dressing
  • Boston Bibb, romaine, or iceberg lettuce
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 lime
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning (or chili lime seasoning if you have it)
  • Other fun stuff you may want: Taco Taxi (did you know that’s what they’re called… the little taco holders?) Oblong Serving Platter, Flexible Cutting Board

Directions:

Start by seasoning the chicken with salt and pepper, then grill them (you could do stovetop as well).

Meanwhile, bake your bacon on a foil lined cookie sheet at 420°. Start checking for doneness at 15 minutes but it will likely take closer to 20.

I had used ends and pieces so they came already chopped, but if you use regular slab bacon crumble it up after it’s cooked.

When the chicken is done, cut it up into bite sized pieces and mix the cilantro in.

Wash the lettuce, and carefully remove each leaf so that it creates a boat, or cup to put the yumminess in.

Now set all your ingredients out so people can build their own lettuce wrap. Squeeze the half a lime over the avocado, tomato, and chicken.

Take the lettuce leaf, fill it with the bacon, avocado, tomato, and chicken. Then drizzle with ranch.

Eat it like a taco and enjoy!

  • I'm am exactly a month into keto and this recipe is beyond helpfu for helping me stay on track! I love that the keto diet has so many satisfying foods and this recipe is one of them. Thanks for posting!
  • These were absolutely delicious! Dinner came together so fast with sweet potato fries. Will definitely make this again!
  • What is the Calorie, carb, fat and sugar count for these wraps? I started keto and these look delicious but I dont want to mess up my carb counts, etc. Thanks!
    • I just did the foot work, and if you make your own ranch with a Hidden Valley packet and sour cream, you will have 1 gr carb for 2 tablespoons.
    • I apologize I don't know much about the veto diet... but I would make sure you find a ranch that's low in sugar... maybe even nix it all together. Otherwise you should be good I would think.
    • Hi Terri, It easily serves two good sized adult servings and could also make two additional kids size servings out of the remaining.
  • Can you add some social media icons? I'd like to share this to facebook for my boyfriend to cook (yes he cooks not me..i'm in love!) but you don't have any social media share icons...
    • Hi Jennifer, that's great! There should be blue share buttons on the left side of the page (bottom if you're on mobile).
