5 Minute, 3 Ingredient Curry Chicken Lettuce Cups

{Low Carb – Gluten Free – Dairy Free – Keto & Paleo Friendly}

Makes  2 – 4 all natural, quick and easy, light, fresh, creamy, dreamy, crispy, crunchy, seriously flavorful lettuce cups. (1-2 servings)

Ingredients –

1 cup of cooked chicken – chopped or shredded

For the dressing –

2 Tablespoons of mayo – Homemade or store bought will work –  ( I use Primal Kitchen Foods – {Paleo} Avocado Oil Mayo) **

1 teaspoon of your fave curry/Indian spice mix – I like to use The Spice Trading Company’s –  Dreamy Carrot and Nutmeg Spice Mix

A squeeze of lime juice (about 1/2 teaspoon)

Salt and pepper to taste

For serving –

Baby coz or butter lettuce leaves, washed and dried

1/2 an avocado, sliced

1-2 Tablespoons of pomegranate arils – fresh or freeze dried
*You could sub dried cranberries, cherries or even red grapes would work here too

Coriander (cilantro)

Method –

1 – Place all of the dressing ingredients into a small bowl or glass jar and stir to combine.

The dressing is quite thick so feel free to add a splash of water (or milk of choice) about 1/2 tsp at a time, to reach desired consistency.  I usually take 1/2-2/3 of the dressing and stir it into the chicken before thinning out the rest to drizzle over the top;

1 – This helps the salad mix hold together nicely in my lettuce cup and,

2 – No one likes a watery salad!!

Then I thin it out whats leftover to drizzle over the top, because I love me a good drizzle!

2 – Place your cooked chicken into a small bowl, add 1/2-2/3 of the dressing and stir to combine.

3 – To serve – Place a few slices of avocado into your prepared lettuce cups, top with your creamy, dreamy, chicken salad, sprinkle with fresh coriander, pomegranate arils and drizzle over the last of that dreamy dressing!

Enjoy xo
