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!
