This dish is a great appetizer or even main course for your meal! Chicken Lettuce Wraps are great for; kids, men, and even women that are health conscious. They are fun to eat and look beautiful on a plate. This dish can be used as a healthy alternative to many unhealthy dinners. I made these for dinner one night and had some leftover chicken so I bought the cutest little romaine lettuces. They’re called “little gems”. I’m sure you can find them at any specialty fruit store. I just filled up the leftover chicken in these mini lettuce cups as shown in the picture below. You can also serve them for dinner or as an entrée in a larger romaine lettuce.
1 pound dark meat ground chicken
1 yellow onion diced
1 red pepper diced
1 cup diced mushrooms (any mushroom works!)
