What is the best lettuce for lettuce wraps?

The best lettuce for wraps is a crispy one, with a crunch in every bite. Normally Boston bib or romaine hearts work best. Basically, you can use the lettuce that you love.

These minced chicken lettuce wraps are so delicious cooked in amazing sauce, which is superbly easy to make. Wrap the chicken filling in any kind of lettuce you like and enjoy this healthy meal as finally, it's the taste and deliciousness that matters and not which kind of lettuce is used.

Can I make the Thai chicken wraps in advance?
You can make the sauce in advance, store it in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Also, you can prepare the chicken filling and refrigerate which will be good for 3 days. You can also freeze it for up to 1 month.

But here the veggies will be soggy so better to leave the veggies out of the chicken when preparing the chicken and store the chopped vegetables separately in a ziplock bag.
How To Serve

Lettuce wraps can be served as appetizers. The easiest way to make them mess-free serving we can pile up lettuce leaves separately, chicken in a bowl, extra topping like peanuts, chopped spring onion, sesame seeds separately.

Notes:

Mined chicken works best for this recipe but you can use chicken breast meat and chop it finely to use in the dish.

The choice of adding spice to the recipe is totally optional. You can add sriracha and red pepper flakes or totally skip them if you don't like much heat.

Use the lettuce that you like. Crispy lettuce works perfectly. If you get a Boston bib or Iceberg or Romaine hearts, they are best for wraps.

You can make the sauce and chicken filling ahead and refrigerate, just keep the vegetables separately in a zip lock and add them before serving.
