Lunch Hack: Chicken and Hummus Lettuce Wrap


Prep Time: 10 mins

Total Time: 10 minutes

Makes: 2 serving


  • 8 oz chicken breast, cooked

  • 4 Tbs hummus

  • 1/4 cup cilantro, fresh, chopped

  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 1/2 seedless cucumber

  • 2 tomatoes, chopped

  • 1 head romaine (8 leaves)



  1. Chop cilantro, tomato and cucumber and juice half of a lime. Put into a small bowl and set aside.

  2. Add hummus to the bowl and stir to coat vegetables.

  3. Cut leaves off from head of romaine. If the center rib is thick, smash it with the flat side of a chef's knife for easier rolling later.


  1. Lay whole lettuce leaf flat on counter. Add 1/4 of the chicken + 1/4 of the vegetable mix into the middle of the leaf.

  2. Starting with the long side of lettuce closest to you, tightly roll the lettuce up. Tuck the ends towards the center (just like rolling a burrito). Continue to roll the lettuce wrap. Keep everything as tight as possible. Repeat.

  3. This recipe should make 4 wraps or 2 per person.


This recipe is a great way to re-invent dinner leftovers into a delicious & fast veggie dense lunchtime meal. What other proteins can you use in this recipe? Leftover fish, smoked salmon, hard boiled eggs, thin sliced steak or pork all would go beautifully here. If you are not a fan of cilantro, swap it with any other fresh herbs in your kitchen, or leave it out altogether.
