We are cruising in February and so I’ve been working extra hard to make healthier eating choices to hopefully shed a few pounds. Eating healthy just makes you feel better too but I’ll be the first to admit, lettuce wraps don’t sound just really exciting to me. You know what though? Sometimes I get tired of living in my little box so I encouraged myself to try it! I didn’t like, I LOVED it!
Normally, for these spicy chicken fajita lettuce wraps, I would have made tortillas for the family. Instead I chose lettuce. Of course, in a our small town of Sweetwater, our store didn’t have the greatest lettuce choice for wraps. I didn’t let that stop me. I just went with what they had. If I had to recommend some to you, I’d suggest bibb or iceberg lettuce.
Produce is so important when eating healthy. Anytime you can incorporate vegetables into your diet, you should do it. Me and my husband decided on some colorful bell peppers and lots of onion! Those things alone can also add a ton of flavor to whatever you’re cooking. I was out of boneless, skinless chicken breast in my freezer, so I went with the tenderloins. When you live 30 miles from the closest store, you learn to stock up! I guess it’s time to make a grocery run!
One of the things my son always tells me, is how hard it is to make chicken breasts & tenderloins, flavorful. I showed him just how easy it was with these! He’s 20, enrolled at Abilene Christian University, and is just really starting to cook more. We added random spices and, in the end, it was packed with flavor!
You could add all kinds of things to your wrap like sour cream, cheese, and salsa but I wanted healthy so I used some avocado and fresh lime juice! AH-MAZING!
So tell me, what spices and fresh ingredients would you add to your chicken fajita wrap?
Please note: I didn’t measure ANYTHING! We just threw it together and viola! If you’re unsure, less is more to start with. You can always add to but you can’t take away when it comes to spices!
- Sanderson Chicken Breast or Tenderloins
- Bell Peppers
- White Onion
- Green Onions
- Soy Sauce
- Cayenne Pepper
- Salt & Pepper
- Lemon Pepper
- Nothing too fancy here. Slice your vegetables and chicken up.
- Stir-fry it all up together with the spices, until chicken is done.
- Serve in lettuce, wrap up, and eat! Tortillas are another option. ;)
