These Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps are an easy, quick lunch or dinner- PLUS they are healthy low carb, and full of protein! All of the ingredients used in this recipe are things you can pick up at your local grocery store or even Amazon for a more convenient shopping experience.
In this recipe I use Bragg’s Liquid Aminos as well as coconut aminos as a substitute for soy sauce because they contain amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. I also prefer using aminos because of the less salty taste. When cooking these chicken wraps, you can also choose to add more veggies for a more filling lettuce wrap, my favorites are mushrooms and zucchini. Adding more low carb veggies and using soy sauce replacements are great for someone who is keto-friendly or just wants to eat a lower carb meal.
