I've had these in the old recipe file for a while, just waiting for me to get around to them. So I suggested them the other night and the great BF helped me execute them beautifully! It's really easy and mostly a concept more than a specific recipe- you can change any vegetables out for any others, make your peanut sauce the way you like it, add other things, etc. So let's go!
|Here's your fairly simple arsenal- I always include tortillas with wraps if you want to up your calorie content :)|

|And all of our ingredients ready to assemble, from chicken to veggies, noodles, and sauce.|
Thai Lettuce Wraps
-chicken, cooked and chopped/shredded/etc.
-ramen noodles, without the sauce packet
-Sriracha or other hot sauce
-optional: tortillas to wrap your wrap in! Very handy and tasty if you need to up your calorie or carb count!
Cut/peel the carrots and cucumber very thinly (see picture, I used a vegetable peeler).
Make your peanut sauce (look at the ingredients picture for some ideas, or you can buy some pre-maid sauce).
Cook your ramen noodles, drain.
Layer your chicken, veggies, noodles, and sauce into your lettuce shells and enjoy!!
