How To Make Tasty Chicken Lettuce Wraps

These delicious wraps can be served as an appetizer or an entire meal. The cool, crisp lettuce perfectly complements the warm, flavor-bursting contents. There are many varieties of lettuce wraps, and you can make any wrap into a lettuce wrap by substituting Boston Bibb lettuce or iceberg lettuce for a tortilla or bread. These are a great way to cater to a guest or family member who is gluten-intolerant. Asian-inspired lettuce wraps are easy to make and pack a lot of flavor into every bite. You can sauté ground beef, chicken, or even tofu, with spices and sauce to create a substantial filling for your wraps. Add flavors like garlic, ginger, soy sauce, red pepper flakes and hoisin sauce to evoke the Asian-inspired taste. You can add a little spice with chili oil or chili sauce if desired. In this video, Chef Mark gives an online cooking lesson on how to make tasty chicken lettuce wraps. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
