I love making these lettuce wraps for lunch, especially on busy weekdays when I don’t have much time to spare. They’re also a great option for a quick and easy dinner, and they’re sure to please even the pickiest eaters. Plus, they’re perfect for warm weather days when you don’t feel like eating heavy, hot meals.

To make these Chicken Lettuce Wraps, you’ll need some boneless, skinless chicken breasts, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, and a few other simple ingredients. The peanut sauce is made with peanut butter, hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, and some other tasty spices.

To assemble the lettuce wraps, you simply spoon some of the chicken mixture onto a lettuce leaf, add a dollop of the peanut sauce, and enjoy! It’s that easy. And with all the protein from the chicken and healthy fats from the peanut sauce, you’ll feel full and satisfied without feeling weighed down.
