Chicken Lettuce wraps

Chicken Lettuce Wraps 

Ramadan is all about fried food, said no one. We can try and include veggies and proteins into our diet without using too much oil. Iftar is the time when you need to have wholesome snacks. I know it isn’t easy to control the temptations for fried food, so let’s try to keep it moderate, where you have fried food every other day and then increase the days apart to having fried food in two days gap. :)

This lettuce wraps are not only delicious but low carb too. I love how versatile this idea is! You may include any of your favorite protein or veggies. You need not follow my recipe to the T. Have fun and add your favorite ingredients. I have added cashews for that added crunch, you may add your choice of nuts or no nuts at all. 

Let me tell you, this is the easiest snack you can put through for Iftar! So so delicious! Make sure to use fresh Iceberg lettuce for that crispy leaves. 

Before we wrap up.. Let’s make the wraps :P


  • Iceberg Lettuce
  • 250 gms Boneless Chicken, minced
  • 3 Garlic cloves, finely chopped finely
  • 1 small piece Ginger, chopped finely 
  • 1 medium Onion, chopped finely 
  • 1/2 Red Capsicum, thinly sliced
  • 4-5 Mushrooms, chopped
  • Vegetable oil/ Olive oil
  • 8-10 Cashews, chopped
  • Spring Onions, to garnish 

Sauce Mix:

  • 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp White Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 1 tsp Hot Sauce
  • 1 tsp Red Chilli Flakes 
  • 1 tsp Red Chilli paste, optional (for extra spicy)


  1. In a small bowl, mix the sauces under the Sauce mix and set aside.
  2. In a pan, sauté chopped onion in some vegetable oil or olive oil. Once translucent, add finely chopped ginger and garlic. 
  3. Add chopped mushrooms and sauté on high.
  4. Make a well in the middle of the pan and add the minced meat and mix the chicken vigorously so that the chicken doesn’t cook as a clump.
  5. Half way cooked, add the sauce mix and mix well and cook on high flame. 
  6. Next garnish with spring onion, red capsicum and chopped cashews.

  7. Place each washed and dried lettuce leaf on the plate and top each lettuce with the prepared chicken filling and serve.
  8. Wrap it anyhow you like and pop it into your mouth, the crisp of the lettuce and the flavors will burst in your mouth.  

Ps: Be careful when you add salt, as the sauce have salt content more in them.
