Lunchtime either means making a pit stop from work to catch something to eat, or you have a decent lunch hour. Preferably make this the day before since the cook time is around 30 minutes. A lovely chipotle chicken lettuce wrap that will rejuvenate and add a bit of spice to your lunch!
Chipotle Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Heat your preferred oil (olive or coconut) in a frying pan and quickly place the chicken pieces in. Cook the chicken strips until golden.
Using the same frying pan, after the chicken is done. Add more oil and sautée the onion until soft.
Then add in tomatoes, brown sugar, cumin, and chipotle peppers to simmer for 15-20 minutes. Or until the tomato sauce begins to thicken.
Place the chicken back into the frying pan with everything. Cook for 5 minutes.
Take your lettuce, avocado, and remaining cherry tomatoes to start arranging an open lettuce wrap. Once the lettuce is placed on the plate, place the chicken chipotle mixture on the lettuce. Then place the avocado and tomatoes on top. With a spritz of lemon.
