Chicken Fajita Lettuce Wraps | 21 Day Fix | Weight Watchers

Chicken Fajita Lettuce Wraps | 21 Day Fix | Weight Watchers

Let’s talk fajitas. I mean…everyone likes a good fajita, right?! Charles cooks a lot for us, and I love it when he makes fajitas. Because I’m picky (and so are my kids), he always makes a side of super mildly-spiced chicken for the sensitive ones in the house (me and the kids) and then kicks the spice up for his own. These Chicken Fajita Lettuce Wraps with Cilantro Lime sauce are a great recipe to add to your meal planning rotation – you can easily customize these to everyone’s liking.

You’re going to love these because they combine a homemade fajita seasoning with the ease of rotisserie chicken. This is also a great recipe to meal prep for, as you can cook chicken in advance if you’d prefer doing that to using a rotisserie chicken. I recommend preparing the fajita seasoning in advance (you can make an extra large batch so you’ll always have some around). I also recommend making the Cilantro Lime sauce at least the night before so the flavors can blend. Throwing this recipe together will take no time with those simple prep steps! But even if you do it all at one, this recipe comes together in about 30 minutes.

Some other bonuses to these Chicken Fajita Lettuce Wraps: they’re ideal for the 21 Day Fix, Weight Watchers, and any low-carb eating plan.

How to make Low-Carb Fajitas

You know we love fajitas! Some of my most popular recipes on the blog are these Sheet Pan Fajitas and these Instant Pot Tri-tip Fajitas. You can make any of those recipes lower carb by swapping out the tortillas for lettuce wraps, just like we’re doing here. 

This recipe also includes a protein-packed cilantro lime sauce. I recommenr making this sauce the night before so the flavors can thoroughly blend.

What lettuce is best for fajita wraps?

We used romaine for these lettuce wraps. Romaine is fantastic because the leaves are just the right size for filling. We will also use butter lettuce or bib lettuce (especially for things like these BBQ pork wraps – butter lettuce is also a great size and nice and sturdy). 

The best lettuce for this recipe is your favorite lettuce. 🙂

Don’t forget: For best results, prepare the cilantro-lime sauce the night before so the flavors have a chance to thoroughly blend. You can also prepare the fajita seasoning in larger batches and store in an airtight container for later use. 

If you don’t like spicy…leave out the cayenne and make sure your chili powder is mild!

What is the best part of the rotisserie chicken to use for fajitas?

To keep this Weight Watchers and 21 Day Fix-friendly, be sure to use skinless meat from the chicken breast. The leg and thigh, or any meat with skin on it, will increase the points (which is fine, just make sure you’re counting it). Some recipes that would be great for the remaining meat would be this Spicy White Bean Soup or this Kale Blueberry Salad. There are lots of ways to use up your rotisserie chicken!

Wow, those chicken wraps look so delicious – I absolutely love them, yet I haven’t tried them for quite some already.. Thanks a lot for sharing this and reminding me to try it!

Excellent! quick and easy to make!

The fajitas were so spicy that my family had to thrown the entire meal out – and my husband is a spicy food fanatic! Not sure what went wrong here, and I am not a novice in the kitchen. Created the spice blend to the T, and based on the results, something I will not be making again.

How many wraps per serving? And how much mixture? Just made this and is curious on how much a serving thanks!

It’s always so nice to get new food ideas from you. I’m definitely going to make the chicken fajitas wraps & the broccoli cheese patties! Thank you Amanda.♥️

I’m a student, and this has helped me a lot, thank you so much. More chicken recipes please 👍😆

hello maybe you can answer my question? if you use the 45 calorie bread is one slice one yellow or is it the 2 slices and when you put chicken in the red container you just fill it up and not push it down right,the only reason i ask is cause of ground turkey i seen on another vidoe they said to push the turkey down. thanks for your help

Is there a way you can tell me where all the sodium is coming from? For such a small meal. I made this for my husband and he LOVED it!! But feels there is a lot of unhealthy amounts of fat and sodium for his diet. It’s feels like low carb bud high everything else, but I totally enjoyed trying this out! However I. Forgot to order the Greek yogurt and used 1/3 less fat cream cheese. Along with with everything else listed to make the sauce.
