These 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 pound dark meat ground chicken
1 yellow onion diced
1 red pepper diced
1 cup diced mushrooms (any mushroom works!)
half a large eggplant dice
half a cup carrots (I used shredded but you can used diced)
