CHICKEN LETTUCE WRAPS MEAL PREP


I love lettuce wraps, especially in the summer when I’m craving something lighter. So far we’ve done fajita lettuce wraps, chicken caesar lettuce wraps, and chicken lettuce wraps. We’ve especially been eating a lot of chicken lettuce wraps after I came up with my copycat version of P.F. Chang’s lettuce wraps.

When you store these, you should store the lettuce and filling separately. That way you can remove your lettuce leaves and reheat just the filling. I photographed the lettuce wraps already assembled because otherwise they don’t really look quite as nice when it’s just a pile of filling and a separate pile of leaves.

It also gave me an excuse to eat quite a few when I was done with my photos. This is a lunch I definitely look forward to!
