You’ll never order take-out again once you taste these Spicy Asian Lettuce Cups. Using precooked Rotisserie chicken, these cups are easy to throw together. They offer zesty flavor and crunch and are packed with nutrition. Using lettuce as a wrap for the meat mixture not only adds additional vitamins and minerals, it’s also a great low carb option. Along with lettuce, you could also use other leafy greens like collard greens as cups in place of breads and wraps. For carving the Rotisserie chicken the 6-3/4" Petite Carver and Turning Fork worked beautifully. They’re just the right size for cutting smaller meats. Rotisserie chicken makes these come together in a snap for dinner and will give you enough for lunch the next day.
