Sweet Teriyaki Chicken Lettuce Wraps

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYou all know I’m a fan of super fast, simple and delicious recipes! Last night, I cooked up another! Jeremy and I were both craving something “Teriyaki”. I decided to make lettuce wraps because I have been craving them since eating at Pei Wei.

I’m surprised at how delicious these were! Jeremy gave them two thumbs up and said he’d give three if he had a third thumb. I was browsing recipes online and all of them had 15+ ingredients for the lettuce wraps, so I decided to go an easier route. Do you blame me?

I was excited about eating the leftovers for lunch today, but when I opened the fridge this morning…they were missing. Oh, Jeremy…

    I am pinning this now! I love teriyaki and need some new ideas. I think I will tweak it and instead of the rice, I would add a little quinoa into the chicken mix. Maybe even add a tiny bit of cashews? Hmmm…so many options with this!
