Just recently, I was chatting with my girlfriend about easy dinners. She said something about how she was making lettuce wraps that week, and I stopped.
Lettuce wraps. Why had I not ever made them?
Better yet – why hadn’t I ever TRIED one!??
(Oh man…. I’m admitting some serious food-ignorance here…)
The “stuffing” of our lettuce wraps was really just a collection of things I had found in the crisper of our fridge. And I was starting to like this recipe. Veggies, chicken, slivered almonds… all tossed in a delicious Honey Teriyaki Stirfry sauce?
- 6-7 large butter lettuce leaves - cleaned and dried
- Boneless skinless chicken breast, chopped
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 pkg of Blue Dragon Honey Teriyaki Stir Fry Sauce
- 1 bottle of Blue Dragon Sweet Chilli Dipping Sauce
- 1 pkg Blue Dragon Rice Noodles
- Chopped Onion
- Chopped Broccoli
- Chopped sweet peppers
- Sliced Almonds
- Grated Carrot
- Heat olive oil in frying pan
- Once hot, cook chicken until no longer pink in center
- At the same time, boil water on the stove
- Cook rice noodles according to directions and then put aside
- Add broccoli, peppers and onions to the frying pan and cook until desired softness
- Add rice noodles and toss with Honey Teriyaki Stir Fry Sauce
- Cook on medium-low until vegetables and noodles are fully coated and warm
- Place spoonful of stuffing on a large butter lettuce leaf
- Sprinkle grated carrot and almonds on top of stuffing
- Wrap up lettuce leaf and serve with Sweet Chilli dipping sauce
Mr. Suburble and I are in agreement that the Sweet Chilli dipping sauce is where it’s at. In fact, he drizzled the entire contents of his wrap with the sauce before he ate it.
The noodles are hearty enough to make these delicious wraps a filling meal.
And I can confidently say, “Oh yeah… I LOVE lettuce wraps!”
Try these for your next summer meal. It’s a light, but delicious, dish!
