And, speaking of lettuce wraps, about a month ago I found a new all time favorite lettuce wrap recipe. It has become my new favorite meal to bring to new moms; if you are expecting a baby and I am signed up to bring you meals, expect this one. We love it around here! Plus, it's great to have another recipe we can use when doing the cleanse. It is a little more work than the crockpot, but totally worth it.
Chicken Lettuce Wraps
1/4 cup of Sweet Chili Sauce (in the Asian section at my stores)
1/4 cup of Honey
1/4 cup Almonds (I chop mine)
Chicken (I use 4 breasts)
Red Bell Pepper
Lettuce (traditionally iceberg is used, but we like romaine)
Cook the chicken (I usually stir fry mine in coconut oil) and brown rice (I usually fry mine in coconut oil until it lets off a "nutty" smell, then boil in chicken broth- tastes awesome!). Stir fry veggies and combine w/ chicken once cooked. Season with salt/pepper. You can add whatever other veggies you like too (I get creative- squash, sweet potatoes, zucchini...). Add chili sauce and honey to cooked chicken/veggies. Enjoy your wraps- stack rice, veggies/chicken in salad leaf and top w/ fresh basil and almonds (we'll add soy sauce too sometimes).
Oh and a hint on the announcement- Kate and Heather, you two should know :) because it was Kate's idea and Heather's hubby is hard at work for me. And, no, unfortunately we are not expecting a little brother or sister for Harper yet, at least that we know of anyway ;). Sorry to disappoint, but I had to tell at least that much- the phone has been ringing off the wall :)
