So track season has just started for my daughter five days a week and needless to say I have found myself in need of some fast, easy food options for families.  That’s why I fell in love with this recipe when I found it on the back of my bag of romaine lettuce heads.  I adapted it a bit and made it my own – which I would encourage you to do too, if you decide to give this recipe a try.  I love how it turned out so much I’ve eaten it probably 5-10 times in the month since I’ve found it and I’m thinking you’ll love it too!

Chicken Salad Lettuce Boats Recipe - Easy, Fast, and Delicious!

To make chicken salad lettuce boats, you’ll need:

  • Your favorite Mayo
  • Romaine lettuce heads
  • Celery
  • Red Grapes
  • Canned chicken
  • Optional: Garlic, Salt, Pepper, Red Onion
  • Optional: Gorgonzola cheese crumbles for extra added epic awesomeness  🙂



  • Slice grapes into quarters
  • Dice celery into small, bite size pieces
  • Drain canned chicken of excess water
  • Mix together diced celery, quartered grapes with mayo and chicken to taste
  • Slice each lettuce head in half
  • Hollow out the inside of each lettuce head
  • Dump chicken salad mixture into each lettuce boat


I eyeball proportions when I make this, but I generally use two cans of chicken, one bunch of grapes, one celery stalk, and two squirts of mayo.  Then I add spices to taste.  This recipe also doubles and triples well to feed a crowd!  Bon appetite  😉
