A low carb chicken bacon ranch wrap that can be made in 5 minutes. A great option for busy weeknights when you have no time to cook a big meal.
My husband and I were talking about our biggest temptations for going off plan the other day. His top #1 missed food was pizza. He loves it so much and although we do low carb tortilla pizzas a lot, he wants the real deal. Like all the time, he wants it.
As I was thinking of the food that I miss most, I realized that there isn’t one single food that I just really crave. Convenience is what I miss most about our old life. The ability to whip through a drive through and order a number one without having to do a special order with no bun. Or ordering whatever sounded good from takeout.
Because after a busy day, sometimes I just want the easiest way to feed my family. And while you can certainly eat low carb (THM S) at a fast food chain, I’ve been working on healthy and ultra simple meals that you can make at home.
Eating at home saves money for one thing. It also allows you to be totally in control of the ingredients that you use and what you put into your body. And finally we live in a small suburb outside of a major city. Although there are plenty of restaurant options not too far from us, there isn’t really anything that is ultra convenient. So if I have a quick meal, it is actually easier for me to cook something rather than go grab food at a restaurant.
So I started trying to come up with a list of meals with minimal ingredients that I either typically have on hand or that are easy to grab in a last minute grocery trip. And then, the meal needs to be super quick to make. Like 15 minutes or less from start to fork on the plate.
The goal is suppers that are literally quicker to make at home than it would be to get in your car and grab a bag of fast food. And these low carb chicken bacon ranch wraps fit all of the criteria for my no time to cook dinner list.

Low Carb Chicken Bacon Ranch Wrap – A 5 Minute Meal
When I first starting Trim Healthy Mama, I tried to cook every complicated meal out there. Hours of my life were spent in the kitchen, my counters were cluttered with ingredients that I had never heard of the week before and some meals were a big flop after spending a lot of time cooking.
And you know what that is frustrating and unsustainable. So what did I do? I quit after a week or two.
I like to think that I am not a quitter but my first approach at THM was so complicated and hard that I couldn’t make it a part of my lifestyle. It was simply a diet that I started and then stopped.
So to prevent that, I needed some healthy meals that I could make with little effort. Or better yet that my husband could make! I love when he helps out with dinner prep.
Making this low carb chicken bacon ranch wrap is so tasty and a very quick meal.
What You Need for Rotisserie Chicken Wrap – THM S
To make this low carb wrap, you need a couple of things that are usually a staple at my house.
- Rotisserie Chicken or Shredded chicken (I keep bags of frozen rotisserie chicken or cooked/shredded chicken in my freezer for easy meals)
- Shredded Cheese
- Bacon (To keep this a simple meal, I use the microwavable kind)
- Ranch Dressing (this is my fave)
- Low Carb Tortillas
- Romaine Lettuce
Assembling the Simple Chicken Rollups
To make the wraps, start by pulling the chicken off the bone if it is a rotisserie. Alternatively you could also use canned chicken that has been drained.
Next place one low carb tortilla on a plate. Fill with the desired amount of chicken, cheese, cooked bacon, romaine and ranch dressing.
Roll the tortilla up like an enchilada and cut it at an angle down the middle.
Serve it with pork rinds and extra ranch for dipping!
