Chicken Caesar Lettuce Cups – Low-Calorie, Low-Carb

Chicken Caesar lettuce cups make the perfect appetizer or low-carb dinner. They are also great for meal planning a quick and easy lunch.

 

These chicken Caesar lettuce cups are great in a variety of ways. They make a great lunch or dinner, and they work as an appetizer to serve at parties. They’re light, low-carb and easy to eat as a finger food. The best part is there are only a four ingredients involved and the chicken salad mixture can be made ahead of time. We really enjoy these in the summer when it’s warm because it makes a nice, light meal.

 

I often make these when meal planning, and store in the fridge for several days at a time. When ready to eat, I just scoop some out into a lettuce cup and it’s ready to go. If serving these at a party or get together, drizzling with a little extra dressing and a pinch of Parmesan cheese on top will dress these up a bit more.  These also make a great family meal. If you want to bulk up the meal a bit more, adding tomatoes or croutons or anything else can give it more substance. Kids can also assemble these at school for lunch.

Making these takes only a few steps. First, take the cooked chicken breast and chop it up into chunks. Put the chicken in a mixing bowl, then add the dressing and cheese and mix together well. Once everything is mixed together well, scoop the chicken mixture onto washed and dried leaves of fresh romaine lettuce when ready to serve.

 

How do I store Chicken Caesar salad?

When stored and refrigerated properly, the chicken Caesar salad will last for 3-5 days in an airtight container.
