Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

LUNCH

Creamy, flavorful, yet not a carb or ounce of dairy in sight! We are SO into these lettuce wraps around here as a delicious lunch- the lettuce gives a nice crisp contrast to the creamy chicken. These also couldn’t be easier to make- put all your ingredients in one place, and that’s really it.

I highly recommend only making as many wraps as you plan on eating, and saving the rest of the filling to use later. It tastes even better the next day, and works really well to make a plain salad more exciting, or on its own as a snack.

If you’re feeling really adventurous, you can even layer it over some nachos, and top with shredded cheese and hot sauce for nachos with an Asian-inspired spin!
