What you’ll need

Here is what you will need to make these extra delicious Addicting Keto Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Peanut Sauce:

Keto Chicken Lettuce Wraps

You will need butter lettuce, chicken breast ( you can use leftover chicken if you have some ), a carrot ( can skip if your macros are tight ), enoki mushrooms, arugula, cashews, cilantro and the peanut sauce.

Keto Peanut Sauce

I am so crazy addicted to this stuff! I have a Low Carb Peanut Chicken recipe coming your way that uses this saucy goodness.

To make it, you’ll need organic peanut butter with no additives, soy sauce, honey substitute, water, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, fresh ginger and garlic.

Organic peanut butter

It’s really important to buy organic peanut butter, not just because the cheap stuff is basically just sugar. Read more about why from BodyUnburdened.

Honey Substitute

Yes, there really is a yummy honey substitute you can buy! It’s made by Nature’s Hollow and is a honey flavoured syrup that is sweetened with xylitol.

I get mine from amazon! Can’t find it there? If you live in Canada, it can also be found at the LowCarbGrocery , LowCarbCanada or in the USA it can be bought directly through Nature’s Hollow.

How to make Keto Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Peanut Sauce

These may be fully loaded, but, luckily, they take no time to create!

Let’s start with the Peanut Sauce; get it all made and refrigerated so that it is ready to go for the lettuce wraps.

Keto Peanut Sauce

I like my sauce to be super creamy, so I use an immersion blender. You can also use a blender or just whisk the sauce together; totally up to you.

To a small mixing bowl or blender add the peanut butter, honey substitute, soy sauce, water, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil and crushed red pepper.

Peel the garlic and ginger, then grate each using a zester or the small side of a cheese grater. Add them to the bowl.

Puree the sauce until smooth using an immersion blender (or blend using a blender).

That’s it! Easy, hey?

Keto Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Prep the chicken

If you have leftover chicken, that’s great, you can absolutely use it in this recipe.

Other wise, take your boneless skinless chicken breasts and slice them in half horizontally. Season each filet with salt and pepper and fry them in a hot skillet until the internal temperature reaches 180°.

Set them aside to cool, then they can be sliced thinly.

Prep the veggies

I am lucky enough to have access to fresh butter lettuce right now.. I decided to try and plant them this spring and, oh my goodness, I have been seriously missing out! My little garden has flourished this year, providing me with an endless supply of lettuce, most importantly, butter lettuce!

My garden full of butter lettuce, a nice big head with more heads behind.

Wash and pat dry the butter lettuce leaves, then set them up on a serving tray or platter.

If your macros allow for it, the carrot brings an excellent crunch that is perfect for these keto lettuce wraps. Peel it and then chop it into matchsticks.

Rinse the enoki mushrooms through cool water and then chop off the root ends.

Wash the arugula, chop the cashews and dice up the cilantro.

Divide the chicken between the butter lettuce wraps.

Spoon out 1 tsp Keto Peanut Sauce over the chicken on each wrap.

    That peanut sauce has me drooling! I would love to have these for lunch today, but I don’t. I will; however, get them tomorrow!


  2. Definitely trying this one soon! I love lettuce wraps and this peanut sauce sounds unreal 🙂


  3. I am not familiar with those mushrooms, never even seen them before but they are so awesome! I wonder if I’d be able to find them somewhere here in Sweden, but probably not or I would have already. Should check back the frozen section, but I’m afraid I won’t find them. I’m not low carb but I like the idea of lettuce wraps. Might try to make this (without those cool mushrooms though) next time I have chicken leftovers and see what my husband thinks 😀


  4. OK, I can see why these wraps are addictive – especially with that signature peanut sauce! I don’t know anyone who can resist that much flavor!


  5. Something unique and something healthy. Love the flavor of Peanut Sauce and all the amazing combination to this wrap.


  6. This wraps look amazing! I really like the peanut sauce that you have going on top of that too.


  7. Im dying to try that peanut sauce ! I never though to put that in a lettuce wrap. Genius idea 🙂


  8. I get excited when a recipe is this flavorful but also super healthy. What a great recipe to make when you are living a healthy lifestyle.

    We so enjoy peanut sauce and with the chicken in the lettuce wraps it looks mighty tasty. In warm weather we like going light on the carbs and the chicken with its own salad looks like just the thing.


  10. I’m always on the lookout for a good low-carb meal! This is sure to hit the spot…so refreshing and light for summer nights!

  11. This looks so good! And it is low in carbs?! I am adding this to my meal plan for the week. It is going to be crazy hot here and lightening up our meals is my priority!
