{Whole30} Chicken Patties Lettuce Wraps

You can also enjoy delicious chicken patties when you are on a healthy lifestyle with this super easy recipe. No special seasoning or ingredients needed – just something you may already have on hand. 

Since I’ve been doing this Whole30 thing, I haven’t experienced bad cravings. Well, if you’d count wanting to eat potatoes with Cajun seasoning and tahini sauce every single day, then OK – I did crave…  something good! When looking at my Instagram feed or Pinterest, I still get those sparkling eyes when I see anything chocolate or that melty ice cream, but the urge of wanting to eat them ASAP is not present anymore. Unlike before, when I see brownies, I feel that I NEED TO EAT THAT NOW! Maybe it is really true that sugar makes you crave.

One of the things I’d love to do just before I started this Whole30 thing – make my own burger. I want my burger homemade – buns, mayonnaise, ketchup, pickled veggies, patties and everything I can do at home. It sounds like a lot of work, but I bet they will turn into something really delicious. Bread is a big NO NO when it comes to Whole30, though I can still make my own patties.These chicken patties are super easy to do – you can just mix everything in a bowl or food processor and you are ready to grill/fry them. Since I haven’t made ketchup and mayonnaise, I did serve this with tahini-harissa sauce. Yes, you got that right. Everything with tahini-harissa sauce is delicious! I wrapped the patties with lettuce and they were perfect!

Yay! I am also bringing this delicious meal at Fiesta Friday # 168. This week’s co-hosts are Petra and Lina. Thank you, lovely ladies and Angie.

  1. Homemade burgers are just delicious and these ones look great and sound great with all those different flavours in too. Thank you so much for sharing with #CookOnceEatTwice!

    1. You are right when you said there are lacking food groups. I did not complete the plan for the last month, but I am still following the rules. I am sneaking sweets into my diet. 😀 Thanks, Helen!

  2. This sounds so good and I have to try the tahini-harissa combination, it sounds intriguing! The chicken patties sounds so good and it looks like a great meal! 🙂 Happy Fiesta Friday!

      1. hi Juhls
        I was a little bit late after a manic weekend but I love Fiesta Friday! Am off to get some harissa today, you inspire me 🙂

  3. Good for you doing Whole30, I have been low carb low sugar for a while now, no bread, rice, pasta etc… desserts, sigh…. your burgers look delicious. Love a good burger and wrapping lettuce is just fine with me, I can do without the bun. Good for you!!

    1. I know the feeling, Suzanne. I am not completing the 30 days, but I am still following the Whole30 rules with little naughty stuff during weekends. I still control what I eat on weekends, though. No overeating! Yay! I did not miss the bun when I had this one – I am more of a patty giril. 😀 Thanks, Suzanne. x

  4. I have heard about the whole 30 program but doesn’t know much in detail.So, do you eliminate carbs?
    Anyways,my mouth is watering looking at the picture perfect lettuce wrapped juicy chicken patties with pickled jalapenos and tahini harissa sauce..

    1. Not completely, I still have carbs from potatoes. 😀 No rice, though and all grains. Thanks for the lovely comment and for following my blog. 🙂
