Chicken Lettuce Wraps are favorite in our house and a meal that is requested often! They are light and quick and bursting with flavor. And they are really versatile. Using rotisserie chicken is super quick, but you can also use ground chicken or turkey, or cube and sauté chicken breasts. Then garnish it with fresh vegetables. I chose carrots and cabbage; bell pepper, radish, and cucumber are fantastic choices too!

    This was excellent! Only drawback was that our lettuce leaves kept falling apart so it was difficult to eat, but the taste made up for that!

    We loved these! The recipe only made enough for 3.

    Added lots of extra veggies and wrapped the lettuce and stir-fry in soft flour tortillas as it was not quiet enough as written.

    I made this last night for dinner and I loved it however, I felt like it needed a tad bit of spice. Any suggestions? I’m not a fan of Sriracha. My husband is Hispanic and loves spice.

      I’d increase the chili garlic sauce. Or, try hot pepper oil. You can find it in the ethic section. A very little goes a long way!

    I made this yesterday and my whole family loved it. We went meatless and added extra veggies. The peanut sauce was soo yummy! We will definitely make this one again.

    Fantastic recipe! Definitely doing this one again! Also mixed some of the chili garlic sauce with a tad bit of soy sauce and used a little drizzled on each wrap as well.

    If I can’t find Boston Lettuce, is pretty much any lettuce leave a good alternative?
