Asian Keto Lettuce Wraps (with Chicken!) - The Best Keto Recipes (1)

If you’ve made any of my recipes before, then you already know my affinity for easy, one-pan recipes. These Asian chicken lettuce wraps have become a weekly staple in our house. They are so simple, super refreshing and just perfect for a low-carb dinner. Some other great Keto Asian meal options include Keto Sesame Pork and Green Beans or Egg Roll in a Bowl.

One of the things I’ve heard over and over from people who follow a keto lifestyle is that at one point or another they get so sick of cheese and eggs. Believe me, I get it.

Cheese and eggs are simply keto staples and it can be tricky to find a recipe that skips them. However, these keto lettuce wraps are the perfect alternative!

For these Asian-inspired keto chicken lettuce wraps, you’ll need the following simple ingredients:

  • Chicken Breasts

How to Make Asian Keto Lettuce Wraps

This low-carb lettuce wraps recipe is made in just two simple steps! Here’s an overview of the cooking process:

  1. Cook teh chopped chicken, bell pepper and garlic in a skillet.
  2. When the chicken is cooked through and the peppers are tender, add a small amount of chicken broth to the pan and scrape the bottom to deglaze the pan. (This ensures all of that good flavor is released from the pan and your chicken is moist.)
  3. To make the Asian-style sauce, combine the soy sauce, water, rice vinegar, sesame oil, swerve and peanut butter in a small bowl and whisk until smooth.

How to Store Lettuce Wraps

This is a GREAT recipe for meal prepping! Storing this in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to 5 days lets that delicious sauce really coat the chicken, making it even better the second time.

Make sure to store the chicken-sauce mixture separately from the lettuce leaves to ensure that the lettuce stays nice and crisp.

How to Reheat Lettuce Wraps

When ready to reheat, microwave the chicken-sauce mixture in 30-second intervals until completely warmed through. Then spoon onto lettuce leaves and enjoy!

Tips for Making Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

  • I find it helpful to heat the sauce 10-20 seconds before whisking. The swerve and peanut butter dissolves much easier this way.
  • You can use any lettuce you’d like for serving the lettuce wraps. However, butter lettuce holds its shape the best and iceberg lettuce is the crunchiest.
  • The Asian chicken filling reheats well on the stovetop or in the microwave, so this is a great recipe to meal prep!
