How To Make Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Summer is here and you need something to satisfy your hunger without making you feel like you are melting. Chicken Lettuce wraps are the best way to satisfy your hunger and make use of any vegetables that you have in your fridge or in your garden. The fillings that we suggest for the wrap are ground chicken, carrots, zucchini and rice.

The mixture of these fillings will ensure that your wrap tastes like heaven and has a perfect texture. Once you have made the wrap, it is time to fry it with a bunch of garlic, ginger, green onion and a bit of soy sauce. There you have it, a perfect wrap. Need something to drink? Don’t fret, you can have the wrap with lime dressing by juicing 5-6 limes and adding soy sauce, sesame oil, and a little bit of brown sugar. Let’s say you have had the wrap and you are out of certain ingredients, or you want to mess with the ingredients to come up with something new, the lettuce wrap allows you to use a different combination of ingredients and still taste amazing. You can go for ground chicken, ground pork or turkey and you can add or change vegetables to your liking.

 

While making the lettuce Wrap, you will need to consider certain things. Not all lettuce is the same and you have to find the perfect lettuce. You will need something that is crunchy and you will also need something that is sturdy, so it does not break apart when you are trying to eat it or adding the ingredients. We recommend using butter lettuce or romaine lettuce. Butter lettuce is our first recommendation. It has big, rounded leaves which are not also sturdy but can also be bent without breaking apart.
