Thai Chicken Lettuce Cups

Thai Chicken Lettuce Cups is a tasty, easy, and super simple recipe to make especially if you are looking for something lower in carbs.

Getting healthier, fitter, and energetic before my upcoming birthday. I usually never stick to my New Year Resolutions, most people I think do not but I wanted to change my sleeping habits, and I actually did.

Just to mention a few changes, going in bed way before midnight, turning off everything and getting up with the roaster, around 5 am, stop eating before 6 pm, etc.

That is all part of changing my lifestyle. If your body is screaming for a change most definitely it should not be ignored.

So, back to this delicious recipe. This would make an amazing addition to your Superbowl menu. If your man starts to fuss “oh I do not wanna eat lettuce” just put the chicken in between the buns and I am sure he will love it (please, clear your naughty thoughts).

The flavor is spicy, bit sour from the lime, and a fantastic balance between each and every bite of this Thai Chicken.

I wish you could smell my kitchen now. Who needs an air freshener when we can cook a homemade meal because nothing smells better in my opinion?!

  • Splash of water about 1/8 cup or 1 fl oz
  • 1 lettuce head leaves washed and separated
  • Cilantro or Thai basil less than a handful

Instructions

  2. Cook until the chicken is almost golden on the outside.
  3. Add rest of the oil and put diced shallots, minced garlic, and chilies; stir fry for the next few minutes just to make them softer.

Notes

Like any seasoning, you should add to your taste and preferences. If you find it too salty you can certainly add a bit of water to adjust, but please when you mix together soy sauce, fish sauce, red curry paste pour a little bit at the time over the chicken and taste each time. That way you will truly reach what you like.
