You’ll love this Chunky Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps recipe.
This lightly dressed chicken salad is so delicious and satisfying. Although this recipe calls for pre-cooked rotisserie chicken, feel free to use your favorite grilled chicken recipe instead. If you have the room and use rotisserie chicken on a regular basis, a home rotisserie oven is both affordable and useful. The aroma of roasting chicken alone is worth it, but it’s also versatile and has many uses.
Similar to our Chicken Salad Sandwich recipe, the chicken salad in this recipe uses grapes. We LOVE grapes in chicken salad. If you want, you can add a little bit of chopped celery for some added crunch.
