A Keto Sandwich Loaded With Flavor Without The Carbs
Are you missing classic club sandwiches while following a low-carb or keto diet? Then, get ready to meet your new favorite—the keto club sandwich!
This low-carb version of the classic favorite packs in all the flavors and textures we know and love without the carbs. A club sandwich is an all-time favorite - tender chicken, crispy bacon or deli meat, cheese, tomato, lettuce, and lots of mayo.
All of these ingredients are keto-approved. And as usual, the only problem is the bread. A standard slice of white bread contains at least 13 grams of carbs. Double that for a sandwich, and you have 26g of carbs before you even start adding the fillings.
Large lettuce leaves are the solution! It is already one of the main ingredients, and each leaf has less than 0.3g of net carbs. Pack the leaves with juicy roasted chicken, sliced turkey, Edam cheese, fresh tomato, and tangy mayo for an utterly satisfying meal that will keep you full until your next one.
The sandwich comes together in about 10 minutes, and you can make a large batch and store them in the fridge for up to 3 days. Let's get cooking!
Ingredients You'll Need
This keto chicken club sandwich only needs five key ingredients to make. They are easily substitutable, so use your favorite fillings. You will need the following ingredients:
- Lettuce - Any lettuce with large leaves will work for this recipe. We used savoy lettuce, but iceberg lettuce, green leaf lettuce, butter lettuce, and romaine lettuce will work.
- Chicken - Skinless and boneless roasted chicken breasts.
- Sliced turkey - Substitute for other sliced deli meats or crispy bacon.
- Cheese - We used Edam cheese, but you can substitute it for your favorite cheese. Sharp cheddar, Colby jack, and swiss are all great choices.
- Mayonnaise - Standard full-fat mayonnaise or my spicy habanero mayonnaise.
- Tomato - Thinly sliced tomato to complete the classic club combo.
Making Your Keto Club Sandwich
- Prep the lettuce leaves. Remove the core from your lettuce and peel off 6 large leaves discarding any damaged or wilted ones.
- Build the sandwich. Place two of the leaves together and spread over 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise.
- Start adding the fillings. Place one cheese slice, two pieces of sliced turkey, and the roast chicken breast on the lettuce—season with salt and pepper.
- Add more fillings. Place the next two lettuce leaves on top and spread over the remaining tablespoon of mayonnaise. Top with another slice of cheese, sliced turkey, and sliced tomato—season with salt and pepper.
- Finish the sandwich. Top with the remaining lettuce leaves and slice the keto club sandwich in half, placing a toothpick through each piece to hold it together.
- In the fridge: Leftover club sandwiches can be refrigerated for up to 3 days. Keep them in an airtight container to stop the lettuce leaves from wilting and becoming soggy. You can also store all ingredients separately and build the sandwich when ready.
