Adobo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

chicken lettuce wraps

These were nice and easy to make for a summer dinner. Bibb lettuce leaves are the perfect cups! I originally wanted to make these with some ground turkey, but I didn’t know I was out. So I threw some stuff on a chicken, and viola! Yumminess.

This probably made about 8 lettuce wraps.

Ingredients:

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 a lemon
  • 2tbs Adobo seasoning (I used one from World Spice Merchant)
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 Bibb lettuce leaves

Things you need:

  • Broiling pan
  • I love my citrus squeezer for jobs like this! It keeps those silly little seeds out of the rest of your meal.

Procedure:

  1. Preheat the oven to “broil.”
  2. Put the chicken on the broiling pan.
  3. Squeeze 1/4 of the lemon over the chicken.
  4. add the adobo seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  5. Put it on the top rack and broil 10-12 minutes, or until it’s fully cooked.
  6. Take the chicken out and let it rest on a cutting board for a few minutes.
  7. Dice it up, throw it in the lettuce, and serve!

You can make these like little tacos by adding onions, cheese and other taco fixings!

    These were amazing. The adobo hit the spice spot just right, and the crunch of the lettuce was perfect. A++
