We have a lot of recipes on this site.  Some of them we know are obvious reader favorites, and others are sort of hidden gems.  This recipe I felt was one of those hidden ones, which is why I didn’t even notice when somehow it didn’t make it over to our new site when we re-designed.  But apparently a lot of you noticed!  We got tons of facebook comments and emails from panicked readers asking where the recipe was because it was a family favorite.  (I wish I had known that- it might have not gotten axed in the cook book cuts!)  Thanks to some helpful facebook fans, I was able to track down the recipe so I could get it back on the site.  It’s been a long time since I made these, and seriously I forgot how good they were.  No joke- I couldn’t stop eating them!

So today’s post is short and sweet.  I wanted to get this recipe back up and in our index.  I did make some minor changes, mostly to make measuring and prepping easier (and not as time consuming), and also to improve the sauce.  This recipe was originally created for a healthy food month so it’s incredibly lean and filled with good-for-you ingredients (unlike those famed restaurant lettuce wraps which are calorie-packed and fattening).  These are lean chicken and vegetables which get tons of flavors from fresh ingredients like garlic, lemon, ginger, and onion.

The easiest way to eat lettuce wraps is to roll them up sort of like a burrito.  You can dip the roll into the sauce, but since the chicken mixture is crumbly and the sauce is thin I find it easier to just drizzle some on top before rolling it up.

You could serve these as an appetizer, or pair them with some fried rice for a great dinner!
