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.

I often make this 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. My kiddos eat these without any complaints. If you want to bulk up the meal a bit more adding tomatoes or croutons or anything else to give it more substance. Kids can also assemble these at school for lunch. We really enjoy these in the summer when it’s warm because it makes a nice, light meal.
