Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Made up a super-simple recipe for a Friday night dinner that is not only 21 Day Fix-friendly, but also a great choice if you want to enjoy a glass of wine with your dinner!  They recommend spacing out your containers and I only get two yellows, so I didn't want the double whammy of two yellows at a time at the very end of the day.  Not optimal.  These were quick and easy to put together, and plenty filling even without the carbs.



Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients

  • Lettuce leaves 
  • Chopped cooked  chicken
  • Thinly sliced bell peppers
  • Shredded carrots
  • Diced fresh mango
  • Asian Vinaigrette 
    • 2 tbsp orange juice
    • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
    • 1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
    • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
    • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
    • Sriracha to taste

Directions

Heat up the chopped chicken and toss it with 1/2 of the sauce, reserving the rest for serving.  Serve the chicken on the lettuce leaves and top with bell pepper, carrots, and mango.  Drizzle remaining sauce on top.

The great thing about this recipe is it's easy to serve out with the different portion ratios, as my husband and I have very different container counts in some categories and the same in others - for example, we each get one orange and one blue per day, but he gets double the veggies and fruits I do.  So by having everything separate, we were able to portion out what each of us needed to eat.  My serving was 1 Red, 1 Green, .5 Purple, and 1 Orange - to see what the full amount looked like on the plate, check out my Day 5 blog post.
