More About This Recipe

  • Wrap me up! Who says you need tortillas to make fabulous wraps? These babies are built on lettuce leaves, creating a slimmed-down but delicious sandwich. I love fun food, and anything that can be eaten by hand is totally fun. When I serve something like this for dinner, my kids get super excited about going fork-free – heck, so do I. And the best thing about my Chicken Lettuce Wraps? They are super yummy. These chicken wraps are a cinch to make. You start with cooked rice – you can make it yourself on the stove or in a rice cooker, use quick-cooking or frozen rice or pick it up from your local Chinese restaurant. A couple tablespoons of warm rice are spread out on a Boston Bibb lettuce leaf. Next comes the raw, shredded carrot, which adds a hint of sweetness (and a bit of added crunch) to the wrap. Top that with some cubed warm chicken – you can use rotisserie chicken, leftovers or even precooked from the grocery store, whatever works for you. Finish it all off with a sprinkle of crumbled bacon and a drizzle of barbecue sauce, and you have a fabulous, flavorful wrap. But I will be the first to warn you: these can be a little messy, so take care in eating them, and keep the napkins at hand.
