Chicken Lettuce Wraps have practically become synonymous with one of the major Asian restaurant chains across the US. There are however many variations of the recipe, and in no time at all you can be serving them as either an entrée or appetizer. They are obviously a healthier choice than a high carb alternative. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you all of the health benefits of lettuce, but I will mention my favorite and that’s the sleep inducing and calming qualities. For those of you that work all the time it’s nice to have some natural help to turn your minds off at the end of the day.
Also note that this is one of those dishes that I personally love to add some extra kick to by throwing in a few extra peppers now and again. The lettuce kind of shields you from the heat for a second or two and then boom, it hits you.
