Meal Prep Healthy Chicken Lettuce Wraps
We sometimes grab PF Chang’s or Pei Wei takeout on Friday nights, and we always get lettuce wraps. In fact, it’s usually my entree.
The only problem is I know there’s gluten snuck in them from the sauces they use, so I wanted to have my own go-to gluten free recipe for when we wanted at-home takeout. This one does the job and it’s easy to make too!
I like to add bulk (aka fiber and veggies) to our meals which is why I added carrots to this recipe. I don’t think the PF Chang’s version has carrots, but I the Pei Wei one does.
Either way, you can’t taste the carrots in the recipe. They get super soft when cooked with the sauces. It also makes them much more filling. Exactly why I love adding bulk!
