Chopped Chicken, Black Bean and Mango Lettuce Roll-ups
With the upcoming hot and humid summer days coming fast upon us (or upon us already, depending on where you live), my meal plans are changing to include any foods that don't require a whole lot of cooking, and include some of the herbs coming up in my garden. This chopped lettuce wrap is a perfect quick meal, it's healthy, filling and full of flavor. Cook your chicken breast in advance and use any leftover chicken breast in salads or on sandwiches. See? Versatility.
1 head of romaine, leaves separated and rinsed
2 baked chicken breasts, cooked with salt and pepper and then chopped
1 can of black beans
1 tomato, chopped
1 mango, chopped (I just use frozen mango, it's faster)
1 large handfull of cilantro, minced
2 scallions, minced
Juice from 2 limes
1 tsp honey
Combine the chicken, beans, tomato, mango, cilantro, and scallions together in a bowl. Mix together the lime juice and honey and dress the chopped chicken mixture with it, tossing to coat. Fill the insides of 4 romaine leaves with the chopped mixture and roll the leaves up to form a little burrito. You can mix up your ingredients, I've used chickpeas in place of black beans and apples instead of mango and had great results. Enjoy!
