BLT Chicken Lettuce Cups

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!


    This recipe looks great. I want to know why you use Bacon when I have been reading so much about how it causes cancer.

  3. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. We made this and LOVED it – light and fresh taste, nice change from the usual chicken salad! Dill makes it so tasty!!

      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!

  8. 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.
