Chicken lettuce wraps….

Anytime I grill chicken I always make extra. I prefer diced chicken over ground but you could do either. This is a healthy low carb way to use it up. You can change out what veggies you use. I’ve used red peppers, water chestnuts and carrots before.

You can use jarred peanut sauce or the lettuce wrap sauce. You could also use red chili paste or Sriracha to spice things up.

2 small or one large chicken breast grilled then diced

Jarred peanut sauce or lettuce wrap sauce

Scallions – chopped

Dry roasted peanuts

Choose two of the following vegetables- diced red pepper, cucumber, purple cabbage, shredded carrots or water chestnuts

Some type of hot sauce

Bibb lettuce

Mint, basil or cilantro- optional

Assemble and keep things separate if you are not going to eat them all.

Put diced chicken in a pan and add sauces to coat. Cook only a minute or so and let cool.

Dice up vegetables and smash up peanuts

Pull apart lettuce leaves and place chicken in cup top with vegetables, peanuts, and fresh herb or your choice.
