I have been making these Thai lettuce wraps with rotisserie chicken for many years. It's one of my go-to healthier meal options for lunches or dinners. It's also a great offering for brunch and if you show up to a pot luck with this? You will be a rock star for your loved ones.
Easy and convenient thai lettuce wraps save the day
I love using rotisserie chicken when I'm trying to take a short cut, save a little money, and have something already done. And with rotisserie chicken, you get cooked food that's already seasoned and costs a lot less than buying boneless breast of chicken and preparing it yourself. These tasty, crunchy little wraps will make it seem like you spent hours in the kitchen. But alas, you didn't - you cooked smarter. If I'm splitting hairs (with myself) you didn't really cook at all actually!
This is a salad served cold. Simply pull all the chicken from the bird and chop into uniform-ish chunks. Chop the celery, onion, pepper and cilantro and add to the chicken bowl. Yes, I know some of you don't like cilantro and probably want to exit this recipe now. However, basil is a wonderful alternative to cilantro and will work just as well for this recipe. I promise. So come back down from the cilantro ledge, and let's get back to making our Thai lettuce wraps!
Why is it we love ordering lettuce wraps so much, but think they're too intimidating to make?
I've made this recipe many times for many occasions, and they always get rave reviews. This is a simple recipe but packs a punch of flavor and crunch! Thai lettuce wraps with rotisserie chicken are an excellent way to impress your guests. They make great leftovers too! Pack a few lettuce leaves and a small container of chicken and you have your lunches for the week. This is also a great picnic option! Very low maintenance and so easy to make. I know it seems intimidating, but look at the ingredient list. All you're really doing is basic chopping and mixing.Print
