Teriyaki Chicken Lettuce Wraps are packed full of vegetables and low in points!
They’re only 1 point each for blue and purple, 2 points each for green.
I added broccoli, carrots and red pepper but you can add whatever vegetables you prefer.
Butterhead lettuce works best because it’s easy to fold up. Unfortunately my grocery store was out of it so I went with green leaf lettuce. It works good too.
The teriyaki sauce is an easy homemade recipe. I also used it for this Instant Pot Teriyaki Chicken recipe.
It’s a combination of soy sauce, water, garlic, ginger and brown sugar. I thickened it up with cornstarch.
This is a perfect recipe for those crazy weeknights when you don’t have a lot of time to cook. It’s ready in just 30 minutes!
I live in a condo that has a tiny kitchen with very little counter space. Needless to say I’ve had to improvise where I take pictures.
Besides the kitchen being tiny it doesn’t have windows. I set up my food on a table next to a window to take pictures.
Having a cat and dog it can be kind of tricky. The food is very accessible to them when I’m taking pictures.
More often than not pictures like this tend to happen:
That girl is very sneaky and tends to appear out of nowhere. 🙂
It’s good to have helpers in the kitchen….I can’t imagine cooking without them!
