Easy Cilantro Chicken and Ranch Lettuce Wraps

Easy Chicken Lettuce Wrap Ingredients


Maybe it's the end of summer and the back-to-school schedule that has me hungering for meals with fresh ingredients without a bunch of work. Sometimes, I'll walk the produce section at the grocery store and pick up whatever sounds good at the time, cut it up, throw it together and add a simple vinigarette and that's dinner! - or lunch. Since I had just had salad the night before, I decided to make these easy cilantro chicken lettuce wraps.

Here's what you'll need to make Cilantro Chicken and Ranch Lettuce Wraps (although of course you can customize your ingredients to your personal taste):

  • 1/4 cup fresh cut cilantro 
  • 2 small tomatoes - diced
  • 1 cup shredded cheese, any variety
  • 1/2 green bell pepper - diced

*Optional: Add the juice of 1 lime
*Serves 2: Adjust ingredients to taste

Lettuce wraps are such a great option if you are trying cut carbs or go gluten free. Pretty much, anything you can put in a sandwich, you can put in a wrap. I have romaine lettuce in my wrap recipe, but big butter leaf lettuce is also delicious. What about you, do you love lettuce wraps?
