Directions 

1. Whisk together all of the honey chipotle marinade ingredients in a shallow dish. Add chicken breasts to the marinade and let sit in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

2. Meanwhile, whisk together all of the cilantro lime sauce ingredients and refrigerate.

3. When ready to cook, heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once very hot, add chicken and cook, undisturbed for 3-5 minutes, or until nicely browned on one side. Turn chicken over, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Cook for approximately 4-6 more minutes depending on thickness of chicken, until cooked through. Remove chicken and allow to rest 5 minutes before chopping

4. To a large salad bowl, add diced cucumber, diced avocado, minced red onion, diced tomatoes and chopped chicken. Pour the cilantro lime sauce on top and toss to coat evenly.

5. To assemble the wraps, spoon a good amount of the chicken and veggies on a romaine lettuce leaf and top with more chopped cilantro. Drizzle with remaining cilantro lime sauce and repeat the process with the remaining lettuce leaves. Serve with hot sauce for more heat if desired. Enjoy!

Note:

  • For low carb and keto diet, skip on honey
