Easy Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Honey Lemon Chicken Lettuce Wraps are my new obsession! These little guys are so full of flavor, sweet from the natural honey, with a gorgeous lemon aroma from the freshly squeezed lemon juice and lemon zest. Served over white or brown rice on top of butter lettuce leaves taco-style, these can be passed as a delicious appetizer or light and protein-packed snack.

Also, these delicious Chicken Lettuce Wraps have a very refreshing taste. They will easily brighten a dinner table and also can be made in advance and assembled in minutes right before serving. Make a large plate and serve them for dinner, as it will take you only 30 minutes to make these!

Why You’ll Love These Honey Lemon Chicken Lettuce Wraps:

  • Bursting with flavor and coated in the most delicious, sweet honey lemon sauce
  • Also, they are incredibly easy to make in no more than 30 minutes. 
  • In addition, the wraps can be made in advance and assembled right before serving
  • Packed with protein and fiber if you opt for brown rice
  • Can be enjoyed as a snack, appetizer or light dinner
  • Gluten-Free and refreshing, definitely a crowd-pleaser
  • Can be served warm or cold

How to make Chicken Lettuce Wraps?

  • Cook the rice: Cook the rice according to package instruction. Also, you can use white or brown rice based on your preference. 
  • Saute the chicken: In a skillet over medium-high heat, add some olive oil and saute the poultry for about 5 minutes until golden brown. 
  • Make the lemon glaze: Combine the glaze ingredients into a saucepan over medium heat, and whisk together. Whisk together till the sauce simmer and thickens, for about 4-5 minutes. 
  • Serve: Assemble this delicious appetizer by topping a lettuce leaf with cooked rice, chicken and lemon glaze. 

Recipe Tips:

  • I always say this, but a good meat centered meal starts with quality meat, so use organic chicken breasts
  • Cornstarch is a key ingredient in here, do not try to replace it with flour, the results will not be the same
  • Using fresh ginger and garlic will add amazing flavor and taste to the sauce
  • The fresh lemon zest will add a punch of flavor so definitely add some
  • You can use white or brown rice
  • Using fresh, crips butter lettuce leaves will add a nice crunch

Tools/Ingredients I used to make the Honey Lemon Chicken Lettuce Wraps Recipe:

  • Soy Sauce – I like using lite say sauce in my recipes, as it has less sodium and its easier from me to control the saltiness of the dish, I always buy a large bottle like this one and keep it in my pantry
  • Sesame Seeds – these little guys are perfect in Asian recipes, also sprinkled on salads and fish, a jar will last you a long time
  • Cornstarch – I prefer using cornstarch instead of flour to thicken sauces, and this organic brand is my favorite
