I have such a food crush on these whole30 + keto thai chicken lettuce wraps. The flavors are amazing! And it comes together so quickly.

So apparently July is becoming my unofficial “I-love-everything-thai-recipes” month. First I shared my whole30 + keto thai almond butter coleslaw, then I shared my whole30 + keto thai chicken satay skewers.

And now, these super flavorful and delicious whole30 + keto thai chicken lettuce wraps.

The thai chicken filling comes together in a snap.

You sauté some onions, ginger, lemongrass and garlic until they’re softened, then add in the ground chicken (you could also sub ground turkey!). Flavor it up with the paleo + whole30 thai sauce (just 4 ingredients!), cook until the sauce is reduced, remove from the heat and add in the carrots, cilantro and serve on butter lettuce.

The filling is delicious warm, and it’s equally delicious cold. So any leftovers make the best lunch the next day cold out of the refrigerator.

You could eat the filling as is, but I especially love it topped with cashews and my whole30 + keto herby green dressing. The mint in that dressing adds the perfect amount of brightness to these whole30 + keto thai chicken lettuce wraps.

So tasty, and so healthy! These lettuce wraps are paleo, whole30, keto, low carb, gluten free, grain free, dairy free, sugar free, soy free, clean eating, real food. A dinner the whole family is going to love!
