- Cutting board – use a good-quality hard plastic cutting board that can go in the dishwasher and save yourself cleanup time
- Sharp knife – Henckels are this chef’s recommendation for knives. You get GREAT quality for a reasonable price.

How to Make Chicken Parmesan Lettuce Wraps

Chef Jenn’s Tips
- Like things a little spicy? Add a touch of cayenne pepper or red chili flakes at the end of the cooking time.
- Use fresh or frozen spinach. If using frozen, thaw it and squeeze it to remove the water before using.
- Make sure there are no sugars in your Italian seasoning! You’d be surprised how many have sugar in them.
- Add salt and pepper after adding the cheese – cheese is salty and you don’t want your dish to be too salty.
What to Serve With Keto Lettuce Wraps

Are These Chicken Lettuce Wraps Freezable?
Yes! Minus the lettuce, of course. Simply cool the mixture thoroughly then freeze it in air-tight containers or bags for up to three months.
Reheat in a skillet or in the microwave, and enjoy!
Yes! With only 6 net carbs per serving, you can enjoy this on a keto or low-carb lifestyle.
Ground pork would be my next best suggestion, or go with sausage meat (out of the casing). Ground beef would also work.
Not long at all! You can be eating in under 20 minutes!
