Description

BBQ Chicken Lettuce Wraps are a fun and delicious healthy meal option. Picture this: tender butter lettuce cups filled with succulent bbq chicken and topped with a vibrant, fresh corn salsa. Each bite is an explosion of flavor! Perfect for a weeknight meal, lunch option or a quick meal to get on the table in under 30 minutes.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skin-less chicken breast or tenders – cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 cup bbq sauce
  • 2 ears fresh corn
  • 10 oz roma or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 bulb butter lettuce

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized sauté pan over medium heat. Add the chicken in and season with the seasoned salt. Sauté the chicken for about 5 minutes on both sides until perfectly seared and cooked through. Add in the bbq sauce and toss to coat. Reduce the heat to low for a couple minutes then turn off the heat.
  2. While the chicken cooks, prepare the corn salsa. Cut the kernels off the fresh corn cobs and add to a bowl with the halved tomatoes and chopped cilantro. Toss to combine and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Gently pull the butter lettuce leaves apart from the bulb. Serve and assemble by using the lettuce as a wrap like a tortilla and add in a spoonful of bbq chicken and top with the fresh corn salsa.

Notes

  • If you don’t have time to make the bbq chicken from scratch, you can use a rotisserie chicken that has been lightly shredded! Toss to coat with the bbq sauce and warm through.
  • Use your favorite kind of bbq sauce – my personal favorite is Sweet Baby Rays!
  • The fresh corn salsa can be made a day in advance.
  • Store the leftovers separate from each other.
