Chicken Taco Lettuce Wraps with Cilantro Sauce


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

To Assemble

  • 12 leaves butter lettuce/bibb lettuce
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • ½ avocado, diced (optional)

Cilantro Sauce

  • 1/2 cup loosely packed cilantro
  • 6oz fat free Greek Yogurt (1 container) 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 jalapeno (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • ¼ tsp salt


To Cook Chicken

  • Add the chicken, garlic, olive oil, and spices in a large bowl or zip-seal bag. Place in fridge and let marinate for at least 15-30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
  • Remove chicken from marinade, and discard marinade. Place chicken on a grill or pan heated to medium-high heat. Let chicken cook until it is no longer pink on the inside, about 9-10 minutes per side (or until it has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F). Once slightly cooled, shred or chop the chicken per your preference.

To Make Cilantro Sauce

  • Place all the ingredients in the food processor and blend for 1 minute, or until creamy. 

To Assemble

  • Layer lettuce wraps with chicken, tomatoes, onion, and avocado. Drizzle with cilantro sauce, or your favorite taco sauce.
