Pesto Chicken Lettuce Wraps

This is a great healthy lunch idea. If packing this away to eat later just place these in between two wet paper towels so the lettuce does not wilt. I love serving this with a bowl of tomato soup, they go very well together.

4 Iceberg or Boston lettuce leaves
24 ounces Chopped Cooked Chicken
2/3 cup Walnuts
1/2 cup Avocado Oil
1 Lemon (juiced)
2 cups Kale Leaves
1 cup Basil Leaves
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt

Place the walnuts, avocado oil, lemon juice, kale, basil, salt and pepper in a food processor and pulse until smooth and creamy.
Mix with the chopped chicken in a bowl and divide into 4 portions.
Place 1 portion inside a lettuce leaf, fold the sides over and roll into a wrap; repeat for remaining ingredients.
