Folks, if you've never had lettuce wraps before, you're missing out!  They're tasty, satisfying, very low calorie, and a great way to use up leftover chicken!  

I'm always experimenting (playing with my food), and I love when something turns out amazing by chance.  I had never combined our Champagne Mustard with soy sauce, until now.  Wow!

I make these on occasion when my hubby travels, because they're quick and easy and oh so delicious, and not something my hubby would usually eat (more for me).

Recently, I made these wraps for myself for lunch and our 21 year old son happened to be home. His comment, "Mom the kitchen smells amazing, what did you make?"  I  said, "You wanna try?"  Guess what?  My biggest foodie critic, my 21 year-old tried them and loved them!  

The Champagne Mustard combined with soy sauce elevated these wraps to the next level.  You need to try these!  "Quick Cooking" is an understatement. This recipe only takes about 5-7 minutes and serves one, two if you share;)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Rotisserie chicken (found in most grocery stores), or cooked chicken
  • 1 green onion, sliced, green tops set aside
  • 1 cup packaged coleslaw mix
  • 1 Tablespoon (Tbsp) Coconut oil (could substitute Olive oil)
  • 1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon (Tbsp) Cherchies® Champagne Mustard (or substitute our Hot Banana Pepper Mustard for the spicier palate)
  • 1 Tablespoon (Tbsp) Soy sauce
  • Leaves of butter lettuce, separated and washed

Preparation

Separate, wash, and arrange butter lettuce leaves on a plate.  Set aside.  Slice green onions, reserving green tops for the garnish at the end.

In a small bowl, mix the Champagne Mustard and soy sauce.   Turn skillet on to medium and add coconut oil.  Add onions, sauteing for two minutes, then add chicken.  After two more minutes, add the cabbage. the Champagne Mustard mix, and the sesame oil, stirring constantly.  You want cabbage to be tender-crisp, not mushy.

Turn off heat and divide mixture into lettuce cups.  Serve with soy sauce (optional).  Garnish with green onion tops (I forgot this step in the picture because I gobbled them up rather quickly). To share or not to share, that is the question;)  Enjoy!
