So… basically pumped on life right now… I’ve just discovered this low carb secret, and it’s called: low carb tortillas.
I was fairly skeptical when I ordered them, I saw that yes, they were only 3 grams of net carbs per tortilla… okay, alright, if only they don’t taste like complete cardboard, or fall apart before they arrive in my mouth, I can always spruce ’em up a bit..
I’m tellin’ ya people, NO NEED! I couldn’t believe how well they rolled, tasted and held together. Honestly better than some other wraps I’ve had in my day.
At 3 grams net carbs per wrap, there is a lot I can do with these beauties. This Low Carb Chicken Wrap is very simple, yet simply delicious, and I just had to share it with you.
I hope you love it as much as I do!

Low carb tortillas
I am so happy I found these lovely tortillas to add to my low carb lifestyle. It makes it so much easier to follow a healthy way of life if I am able to have wraps whenever my heart desires.
One day I will absolutely make my own, but until then, I will continue to buy them. This one from gnom gnom looks delicious if you want to give homemade a try!
As recommended to me by a few low carbers, the brand I ordered is Mama Lupes Low Carb Tortillas. It was hard to find for me because the Canadian Amazon doesn’t supply them and I don’t live near any major chain stores. I ended up paying twice as much in shipping as the product actually costs to get them from a low carb store that’s a ferry ride away. 😑
It was worth it though!
If you haven’t tried low carb tortillas yet, I highly recommend these, otherwise if there is a brand you already love, stick with that and let me know what it is so I can give it a try!
All about the chicken
I used a super simple Pan Fried Chicken Thigh recipe for this Low Carb Chicken Wrap. It is super flavourful, loaded with spices and takes no time to fry up. I like to make it for dinner, pair it with Roasted Veggies,Green Beans or to top a Kale Caesar Salad with.
Any chicken will work in this wrap. In a hurry? Pick up a deli cooked rotisserie chicken; The meat is super juicy and you can make a delicious Chicken Broth with the leftover carcass.
What sides go with a Low Carb Chicken Wrap
There are lots of low carb sides to pair with this wrap. Here are my favourites:
- Kale Caesar Salad
- Avocado Fries with Chipotle Mayo
- Hamburger Soup
- Broccoli Bacon Salad
- Tomato Basil Flatbread
- Cauliflower Chowder
