Flavorful Fridays: Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce Wraps

All I can say is that this tastes even better than how delicious these photos look!!!!
...and it is soooo easy to make!

What you need:
1-2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts {organic is the best way to go with chicken!}
1 Head of lettuce
White rice {1/2 cup for each person should be plenty}
Lots and lots of veggies!! We used...
Purple onions
Red, Yellow and Green bell peppers
Green onions

How to Make:
Cut up your chicken and place in frying pan.
Start boiling the water for your rice-if you do the minute rice like we do-and get that cooking {sorry, no pic for those 2 steps}.

While your chicken is cooking away, cut up all of your veggies and place in a separate frying pan, stirring occasionally.
Oh I LOVE how colorful this is!!
Doesn't it just look so healthy!
Once the chicken is cooked, pour in a small amount of Teriyaki sauce.
Just enough to lightly coat the chicken.
Once the chicken has 'soaked' for about 5 min or so in the sauce, add it to the veggie mix.
I cannot even begin to describe to you how yummy this smells!
Sometime during this whole process of cutting up veggies and cooking chicken,
grab a small pot and pour in the rest of your teriyaki sauce {or as much as you would like}.
Just so you know, we used a couple of different kinds of sauce.
We added some sweet and some spicy to get just the right flavor that we were craving that night.
We also added some brown sugar to sweeten it up even more and let me tell you-it was fabulous!
Once everything is done you will want to pull apart your head of lettuce.
Place a small amount of rice in the lettuce 'bowl' then a scoop full of veggies and then a spoon full of teriyaki sauce.
Eat and Enjoy!

I cannot wait to make this again!!!
{thank you to my fabulous SIL for this oh so delicious dinner!}
