Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Chicken Lettuce Wraps are always a popular item on restaurant menus, so I was thrilled when I perfected this scrumptious lighter version to make at home. My recipe has all the punch of the original, but far fewer calories and significantly less fat and sodium thanks to some simple tweaks. I use lean ground chicken and a colorful blend of chopped vegetables — like bell peppers, carrots, and crunchy water chestnuts — to make the filling, and I then season it with classic Asian flavors. This tasty mixture gets wrapped up in lettuce leaves, making it an ideal starch-free meal for people with diabetes.
