Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I have loved Lettuce Wraps since I was a kid and would order them at P.F. Changs with my dad. Since then I have expanded my horizons – in Dallas my favorite Lettuce Wrap is at Shinsei. My favorite Lettuce Wrap that I have ever had is at Taste on Melrose in Los Angeles – which they refer to as a Thai Chicken Cup.

I have played with recipes to make these at home. I think Lettuce Wraps are the perfect weeknight meal because they are so quick and easy to make. They are high protein/low carb while still being flavorful, filling and satisfying. Please see my recipe below and comment if you have any other great Lettuce Wrap recipe ideas.
