In times like these, it is nice to know you have a quick, easy and healthy recipe (like these Ground Chicken Thai Lettuce Wraps) in your arsenal.
Whether you are trying to eat healthier, or just like to have a dinner or lunch recipe ready for on-the-go, these ground chicken Thai lettuce wraps can fulfill any need.
The ground chicken mixture is combined with a bit of oil and diced carrots. Then, a semi-sweet, soy sauce-based sauce is prepared. All of it is tossed together to form the filling for these ground chicken Thai lettuce wraps.
The Best Part About these Ground Chicken Thai Lettuce Wraps:
One thing I am an absolute stickler on is eating food or drinks at their proper temperature. I am totally that person who reheats her coffee at least 3 times before finishing up a 12-oz. mug.
I also can be found yelling “The food is getting cold!!” if you are not at the dinner table within one minute of it being ready.
My favorite aspect of these ground chicken Thai lettuce wraps… they actually taste good eaten with the filling hot, cold, or anything in-between. I know…. right?!?
Have Fun with Your Toppings!
Feel free to finish these ground chicken Thai lettuce wraps with any toppings you prefer. In this version, I chopped up a few roasted peanuts, green onions, and fresh cabbage.
A few other toppings you can try:
- Cilantro – pairs well with most Thai dishes!
- Cashews – roasted and salted cashews would taste great.
- Water Chestnuts – gives these lettuce wraps an even better crunch.
