All hail the lettuce wrap. Aren’t they just the best vehicle to gobble up all the things? Yesterday I shared my Italian Marinated Chicken. Make that. Make that right now. It is so good.

The Easy Homemade Italian Dressing I use as the marinade is incredibly simple to put together. Just toss the ingredients in a jar and shake.

I like to cut my chicken breasts horizontally so they’re not so thick. This means they’ll grill faster and that every bite will have even more marinade. Those are good things, friend.

Let’s take a moment and just let the awesomeness of these wraps sink in, shall we?

    • Slice your chicken breasts horizontally to create 4 chicken cutlets. (This makes them thin so they'll cook fast and will fit better in lettuce wraps.)
    • Place your chicken cutlets in a gallon ziploc back with the 1/2 cup dressing. Remove excess air from bag and seal the bag closed. Let chicken marinade for 30 minutes and up to 12 hours.
    • Remove each chicken breast from the bag and place on a hot grill over medium heat. Grill 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until done. (Juices should run clear.)
    • Pull your lettuce apart to make cups (wraps). One iceburg lettuce leaf works great for each wrap. When I use romaine I use two leaves per wrap.
    • Fill each wrap with one marinated chicken cutlet, tomato, onion, avocado, and anything else that sounds good to you.
    • Drizzle a little extra Easy Homemade Italian Dressing on top. (Obviously do not use any of the marinade remaining in the ziploc bag our chicken was in. I'm betting you knew that though.)

      any idea how this would work packed for a to go lunch? Should I separate all the ingredients and construct when I am about to eat? Would love your thoughts!

      1. Christina says:

        You could definitely go either way. If you pack it separately your lettuce will maintain more of it’s crispiness though!
