Chicken BLTA Wraps

With the little taste of summer weather we've been having, no one wants to spend too much time in the kitchen. This is a quick recipe and a great way to use up any homemade mayonnaise in your refrigerator. Use rotisserie chicken or any other leftovers you may have. This one is a classic!

Serves 4, but easily scaleable.

8 large Boston  or Romaine lettuce leaves, washed and patted dry with a paper towel
3 cups rotisserie chicken, shredded with two forks
1 large tomato, thinly sliced
1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and diced
6 cooked bacon slices, crumbled
1/2 small red onion, diced (about 1/2 cup)
1 cup paleo mayonnaise
freshly ground black pepper

Note: When using homemade mayonnaise that's made with coconut oil, you will need to warm it before mixing with the chicken. When it comes out of the refrigerator, it has a butter-like consistency. I microwaved mine for about 10 seconds at half power. Any leftover chicken salad will also solidify in the refrigerator. It's still very tasty, just be prepared for a different texture than you might be used to.

  1. Combine shredded chicken, red onion, and mayonnaise.
  2. Put one tomato slice on each lettuce leaf and top with about 1/3 cup chicken mixture.
  3. Top with tomato, bacon, and avocado.
  4. Using lettuce leaf as a shell, eat these wraps like a taco.
