Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I was hosting a few friends for dinner and wanted to make something fun and flavorful so I settled on Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps. I am a big fan of this recipe – they’re easy to make and once you buy the staples, like hoisin, rice vinegar, and soy sauce, you’ll have them in the pantry for a million Asian-influenced recipes down the line. I paired these with a slaw and cucumber salad and it was a hit! Best of all, I could make all of the items in advance and simply re-heat the meat once they arrived.IMG_4735Ingredients

    1. Yes! It’s actually super easy (as is everything I do, haha!). I just buy two different bags of coleslaw mix from TJs, and just add veganaise, salt and pepper. I am going to write something soon about this product because I LOVE it. It’s so healthy, low fat and tastes just like mayo – without being bad for you! Just mix a few tablespoons, shake well and add salt/pepper and that’s it! Keeping it in the fridge for 30 mintues+ before you serve is best so it soaks in. 🙂
