Spring is in the air! It's the perfect time to start using one of my favorite low carb food cups - Romaine hearts. This is a perfect "cup" to hold all sorts of salad mixtures. Today I'm using grilled chicken with an avocado bacon dressing.
Chicken Lettuce Cups w/ Avocado Bacon Dressing
3 lg. Romaine hearts, rinse and pat dry with a paper towel
1 grilled chicken breast (leftovers are perfect!)
Avocado Bacon Dressing* - recipe below
Lay Romaine hearts open on a plate. Slice the chicken breast into 9 thin strips. Lay 3 chicken strips on each lettuce "cup". Top with 1-2 tablespoons of avocado bacon dressing.
Avocado Bacon Dressing
1/2 ripe avocado, peeled and chopped into medium pieces
1/4 tsp no salt cajun seasoning
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp. Frank's hot sauce
1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 C. celery, chopped into very small pieces3 pieces of bacon, fried crisp and broken into crumbles
**note** Do not add any salt until you do a taste test first. I found that there was plenty of salt in it from the bacon that I used.
Mix the first 5 ingredients in a bowl with an electric mixer. Stir in celery & bacon.Spoon immediately on top of the chicken lettuce wraps.
This dressing can also be used as a dip for vegetables. If a thicker dip is desired, mix in more avocado to the recipe above. Adjust seasonings, if needed.
