Easy Lettuce Cups

Chicken sandwiches, chicken salads, chicken wraps. You get sick of the old standards, and that’s when it’s time to put your chicken in a “lettuce cup.”

Inspired by cuisines like Korean barbecue, in which wrapping meats and vegetables in leafy greens is a go-to, these crunchy vessels taste amazing filled with chicken, tabbouleh, peppers, and avocado.

Don’t constrain yourself, though. You can put almost any kind of vegetables and grains in there with your chicken (or even switch up the meat).
