Have you ever been to an Asian restaurant and ordered lettuce wraps? Everyone makes them differently, but they’re always so delicious and are filled with some pretty bold flavors: you get saltiness from the soy, a little spiciness from the sriracha, and some crunch from the veggies.
This recipe for lettuce wraps is super simple. You’re basically just sauteing some veggies and chicken and then you’re good to go. Feel free to mix up the ingredients, too and use whatever veggies or meat you have on hand.
- 1 head iceburg lettuce
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup diced onion
- 1 cup diced carrots
- 1 jalapeno, diced
- 1 minced garlic clove
- 1 tbsp peeled and grated ginger
- 3 tbsp sriracha
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1 lb chicken breasts, cooked and chopped into small pieces
- To prepare the wraps, peel away the lettuce from the head in big pieces. Rinse, pat dry, and set aside.
- To make the filling, heat the olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, and jalapeno and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the sriracha, honey, and soy sauce and allow everything to simmer and reduce slightly, about 7-10 minutes. Add the chopped chicken and stir to combine.
- To serve, fill the lettuce cups with the chicken mixture (and then eat it as if you were eating a soft taco!).
