How to Make Delicious Low Carb Lettuce Wraps

These wraps only require a short amount of prep time, especially if you use a precooked rotisserie chicken like the ones you can pick up in the local grocery store. When selecting your avocados, make sure you pick ones that are slightly soft but not too squishy, there’s a great article on how to select avocados on wikiHow. Butter lettuce is also a better choice than romaine in this instance as it’s more tender but should you be unable to get your hands on some, you can use whichever you prefer.

However, should you prefer another low carb wrap that is more bread based, the ones below are a good choice:
