Appetizers, Entree

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

IMG_1209.JPGThese lettuce wraps are a great appetizer or even main course! This dish is great for kids men and even women that are health conscious. They are fun to eat and look beautiful on a plate. I made these for dinner one night and had some leftover chicken so I bought the cutest little romaine lettuces, They are called “little gems” I am sure you can find them in a 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 as an entrée in a larger romaine lettuce.

1 teaspoon on siracha

1 teaspoon  paprika

2 Tablespoons worchestire sauce

  2. While cooking use a fork or a potato masher to separate the chicken while cooking.
  3. Cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes covered.
