Is anyone skilled at eating lettuce wraps? Because I am not. I have sauce running down my mouth and arms, chicken is falling out. It’s not a good look. Leah on the other hand, had no problem at all. She tore off a piece of lettuce, picked up a piece of chicken and shoved it in her mouth. My toddler was cleaner than I was after eating these. These are not a messy food, I’m just a messy eater in general. With everything, doesn’t matter. Probably doesn’t help that I like lots of sauces.

I LOVE these chicken lettuce wraps! They are really easy, quick and a healthy meal to throw together on a busy weekend night. It’s literally just browning some chicken, adding sauce, then filling up a large lettuce leaf. Toddler approved too, win!
