Grilled Chicken Lettuce Wraps – 2 Ways
Chicken lettuce wraps are on a standard rotation for the meal planning in our house. Not only are they incredibly delicious and low carb, but they are also really easy to make and can be very budget-friendly. While I typically use ground chicken to make lettuce wraps, you can easily use chicken breasts or thighs on sale to save even more and mix up your regular meal planning routine.
Take advantage of the hot sale prices at Safeway on boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cucumbers, orange juice, and soy sauce to make these chicken lettuce wraps for dinner this week.
The 2 Chicken Lettuce Wrap recipes below are for Almond & Herb Chicken Lettuce Wraps with an Orange Dressing that uses fresh herbs like basil and cilantro combined with thinly sliced carrots, cucumbers, and scallions along with sliced toasted almonds for a little extra crunch. You serve with sweet and tangy orange, soy and dijon sauce to mix up the traditional lettuce wrap.
The second recipe is for a Chipotle, Jicama & Mango Chicken Lettuce Wraps that combines fresh mango and jicama with a chipotle mayonnaise sauce. Either flavor you choose will be amazing and your family will want this to be on your regular meal rotation.
