And It’s A Wrap!


We’ve been attempting new recipes inspired by our desire to cut back on carbohydrates and fill up with a lot of protein for dinner. One meal that we enjoyed making was  chicken lettuce leaf wraps with Thai-inspired sauce.


  • 1 Boston lettuce 
  • 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 lb chicken breast seasoned with salt and pepper, thinly cut into small pieces
  • 1 red or green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped unsalted peanuts
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/4 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 tbsp crushed red pepper


1. Heat extra virgin olive oil in large skillet over medium-low heat. Add chicken and cook. When chicken is half-way cooked, add red (or green) bell pepper and chopped peanuts. Cook until chicken has browned.
