This is one of those recipes I’ve been keeping from y’all! It’s weird because usually I share my favorite ones right away! Since BMW and I work from home we typically make our lunch everyday. Usually something pretty quick but delicious and satisfying nonetheless! At least, when I look forward to lunch then I’m not as tempted to grab something quick or order takeout. Although that certainly does happen. If you’re trying to eat lean or looking for a quick weeknight dinner, then this is it! Less than 30 minutes, maybe even less than that!
Smoky Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps
1lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 head butter lettuce
1 small avocado
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon chopped green onions
1 small lime
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 teaspoon ground smoky chipotle
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- Cube avocado and mix with cilantro, green onion and juice of lime. Set aside.
- Dice chicken thighs into bite sized pieces. Toss with minced garlic and ginger, spices and salt and pepper.
- Melt coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Put chicken into pan and cover with coconut oil. Sizzle over medium heat until chicken is cooked through, about 8 minutes.
- Divide chicken into butter lettuce leaves and top with avocado. Serve with additional lime wedges and hot sauce if you want some extra heat. I personally love to add Taco Deli’s Doña sauce on these!
