I’ve got a new recipe for you that is so easy and so good, AND it’s a great way to get a reluctant family member to eat their lettuce. :) My family scarfed down these BLT Chicken Lettuce Cups, and I loved how it took no time to make (or clean up). If you’re feeding more than four people, you’ll definitely want to double this recipe! Enjoy.

I made this vegetarian by using 1 can of chickpeas/garbanzo beans instead of chicken. I left out the bacon and added red bell pepper for a little crunch. It is very good!
Those sound like great substitutions! – Nicole
Thank you! Glad you enjoy them. – Nicole
This recipe looks great. I want to know why you use Bacon when I have been reading so much about how it causes cancer.
Lisa occasionally uses small amounts of bacon in her recipes: http://applegate.com/products/organic-sunday-bacon but you can always leave it out.
i love your recipes but am on a strick budget, can you help? also, I’m only cooking for 1.
Any suggestions for subbing out the dill?
You can just omit it or sub a spice that you like with chicken salad.
what is the estimated amont of calories in this?
Hi Madison. We do not provide calorie or nutrition details. This post helps explain why: https://www.100daysofrealfood.com/2013/01/04/healthy-eating-defined/.
This is definitely going to be dinner tomorrow.
This was good and refreshing. Always looking for recipes that will use the dill going crazy in my yard. We used avocados instead of tomatoes as is what my family likes best but otherwise we followed the recipe.
I made this for dinner and it was a big hit for this gluten free family. I didn’t have any green onions so I added a tsp onion powder instead and it turned out great.
Could I substitute greek yogurt for the sour cream? Or mayo? I don’t have any sour cream on hand but do have everything else! Thanks!
Hi. We often substitute yogurt for sour cream.
Any thoughts about a tomato substitute ? We’re allergic in our house!
HI Ashley. You could try a pepper or a cucumber.
We used avocado instead of tomatos
We’ve had this about 5 times since you last posted it. We love it. However, we don’t bother with the sour cream sauce. We just use avocados. Delicious! Easy for dinner with friends.
We tried this for dinner. My husband and I loved it! Thanks for the recipe.
We made this and LOVED it – light and fresh taste, nice change from the usual chicken salad! Dill makes it so tasty!!
These look amazing! :) Can’t wait to try them! :)
Had it tonight! Was great and the kiddos liked it too!!!
Anybody have a sugestion on how to make this dairy free?
If you take Plain Dairy-Free Greek yogurt and blend with 1 tsp. lemon juice, it makes a great sour cream alternative. Then just follow the recipe using a splash of unsweetened almond/coconut/soy milk. :) My daughter has an allergy to dairy but LOVES to put this “sour cream” on everything!
I LOVE that your recipe starts with cooked, shredded chicken (and the crock pot link)! Looking forward to trying this dish for a quick dinner.
These look delicious and super easy for a weeknight.
Looks like a great spring/summer meal! Can’t wait to try it! I love chicken salad!
Perfect timing! I was just trying to come up with new lunch ideas for my husband to bring to work.
Looks great! I love an easy clean up on a weeknight.
