Slow Cooker Honey Chipotle Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Hey there!

I'm Tina

This recipe for the Slow Cooker Honey Chipotle Chicken Lettuce Wraps is a favorite in our house. The sweet and savory flavor combination of honey, marinara sauce, and chili powder is pure perfection—and when wrapped in lettuce and paired with fresh cilantro and avocado, it can’t be beat. These lettuce wraps are perfect for a quick lunch, dinner, or snack!

And, bonus, the chicken is so simple to make. It’s cooked in a crockpot (or instant pot) and the marinade only requires three ingredients that you likely already have in your kitchen. It’s so easy to whip up a batch at the beginning of the week to use in lettuce wraps easily packed in storage containers for quick meals on the go.

Makes 4 servings


  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 2 heads of Bibb or Boston lettuce (8-10 leaves)
  • 1 T chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 small ripe avocado, pitted and cut into small chunks


Combine marinara sauce, honey, and chili powder in a small bowl. Place chicken breasts in a crock-pot and then pour sauce all over. Cook on low for 4 hours. Once chicken is fully cooked, remove from the crock-pot / slow cooker and place on a plate, shred with a fork and place back inside the crock-pot with the sauce. Divide chicken into four portions and then divide between two lettuce leaves. Top with cilantro and avocado.



  1. I know this recipe calls for you to cook for 4 hours, but do you find that when you put things in the Crock-Pot, things are ready to be eaten in just about 2 hours or less than the amount that you think you need to cook it for? Most of the things that I put in my crock pot are ready in just about 1 hour! Unless it’s a whole lot of food in there.

  2. I’d suggest you use chipotle peppers in your Honey Chipotle Chicken Lettuce Wraps instead of marinara sauce and chili powder. Chipotle peppers are a wonderful dried, smokey jalapeño usually packed in an adobo sauce.
