A freezer staple of ground chicken with a few Asian ingredients come together in these flavor-packed Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps… a quick dinner in just 20 minutes!
These lettuce wraps are a lower carb meal option and so simple to prepare. The most difficult part of this recipe is the prep work – measuring out the ingredients, chopping and slicing (it takes me about 10 minutes). Easy peasy!
These make a great meal any night of the week and they’re also budget-friendly (a lot less expensive than takeout!).
Do I Have To Use Butter Lettuce in this Recipe?
I prefer to use butter lettuce (also called Boston or Bibb lettuce) because the shape of the lettuce leaves makes it easy to spoon the chicken mixture into, but you can also use the following types of lettuce:
- Red leaf
- Green leaf
Can I Use Ground Turkey Instead of Ground Chicken?
Absolutely! This recipe is just as delicious using ground turkey.
The ground chicken mixture also reheats well for leftovers (if you’re lucky enough to have leftovers!). Enjoy!Print
