Vietnamese Chicken and Lettuce Wraps

Vietnamese Chicken and Lettuce Wraps

The combination of the fresh vegetables and grilled chicken is so perfect for a hot summer dinner.  I marinated chicken in teriyaki sauce and grilled it.  The recipe is more about assembling than anything.  Grate some carrots, chop some cucumber into baton pieces, soak some rice noodles in water and drain, chop some green onions, and pick some fresh mint and cilantro leaves and put them in a dish. Take butter lettuce leaves and wash them for the “tortilla” to bring all these vibrant ingredients together.  The sauce is green onion, fish sauce, lime juice, sugar, garlic, Thai bird chilie and warm water to round out the sauce.  Place all these ingredients in the butter lettuce and you have a wonderful and healthy meal.  You can use beef or shrimp instead of chicken or omit the meat and make it vegetarian.  Click here for the recipe….
