Recipe: Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Nutritionist Joy Bauer shares many a good recipe.
The last one I tried has become a favorite, filling, low-Point lunch.
When her lighter version of Chicken Lettuce Wraps danced across my Twitter feed last week, I knew I had to try it. They're a favorite of mine - and my husband's - at PF Chang's.
I gave it a whirl last night and they were wonderful. For Weight Watchers, it's 8 Points+ per serving, and each serving is generous and more than enough to fill you up. Prep and cooking time was pretty quick, too.
I had mine in Boston Lettuce leaves, my husband opted for white rice. Brown rice would be a great option, too.
My only suggestion is since I was cooking for just the two of us, I would halve the recipe. It left a lot of leftovers, which is great. Unless you're like me and the meal was so delicious it took a lot of willpower not to grab the leftover container and a fork and go to town.
I didn't, but I thought about it...
Anyway, give it a whirl, good stuff! You can check out Joy's Twitter feed here.
