Peanut Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Peanut Chicken Lettuce Wraps

You’ve just discovered your new summertime go-to recipe: lettuce wraps!
With the umami-rich sautéed mushrooms, tangy fresh lime, salty aminos, creamy peanut butter, spicy hot sauce, and a hint of sweetness from the honey, this flavour combination is just AMAZING.
Your taste buds will all be grateful!

The radicchio makes it low in carbohydrates, high in protein, and full of antioxidants.

This entire dish comes together quite quickly.It will take you five minutes to rinse and dry the lettuce leaves, ten more minutes to cook the chicken mixture, and less than five minutes to make the peanut sauce and stuff the lettuce leaves if you decide to use both lettuce and radicchio—which I heartily suggest!.
You will enjoy an incredibly tasty, speedy, and elegant lunch or dinner in approximately 20 minutes.

I get a need for lighter meals like these lettuce wraps as soon as the bright weather and flowers begin to peek through.
