Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Chicken to me is like a chameleon. It takes to flavors like a horse to water (did you Grandparents say this? Mine did. All the time). Making it perfect for any cuisine out there. It’s also something that my entire family can agree on. No hard selling the one bite rule when chicken is on the menu. Clearly I didn’t invent chicken lettuce wraps but I did come up with a quick an easy 15 minute version that you’re going to love.
I developed this recipe as part of my contribution to Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products Countdown to a Better You program! Summer is nipping at our heels and I’m on the good and good for you bandwagon. Did you know that Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products are a smart way to eat right when looking for easy and wholesome homemade meal options? Not to mention, Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Strips are free from allergens like soy and wheat.
For these chicken lettuce wraps, I used Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken breast strips. The wraps are full of bite sized pieces of good for you chicken and veggies, wrapped around a piece of ice cold crunch iceberg lettuce. If you like a little spice in your life feel free to add a pinch of red pepper chili flakes to the sauce to heat things up!
