Whether you're running out the door and need a healthy meal in a hurry, or just want to take it easy in the kitchen, these light and refreshing lettuce cups are a great solution. (And the recipe is easy to double if you need more servings.) For wrappers, you can opt for crunchy iceberg lettuce or softer butter lettuce. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Sara Mellas.

  • 1/4 inch fresh ginger (peeled)
  • 2 tablespoons tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 4 ounces water chestnuts (canned, drained)
  • 2 scallions
  • 12 ounces Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Strips (can also use Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Fillets or Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Oven Roasted Diced Chicken Breast)
  • 8 leaves iceberg lettuce (or butter lettuce, large; use a few more if leaves are smaller)
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

    Better with cooking chicken in the tamari, rice vinegar, garlic, and ginger mix. We used ginger piwder instead, still came out very good!

    We make this all the time now. Makes a lot of servings, and tastes delicious! We usually use a rotisserie chicken, just because our local market has some really good flavored ones - we’re partial for the lemon peppered and it goes great with the recipe.

    Lettuce cups for the win! I did a few things differently: -Added only a 1/2 tsp. of honey -Added about 1 tsp. of Chinese Five Spices -Added Teriyaki sauce and went heavier on the rice vinegar -Baked the contents before putting it into the lettuce cups (came out very savory) Next time I think I'll add peanuts. Overall, great and super easy recipe. Looking forward to making it again.
