Chicken Lettuce Wraps are soy-free, gluten-free and Whole 30 compliant. This meal comes together in less than 30 minutes. Serve with roasted vegetables or a big Asian salad for an easy and healthy lunch or dinner.

 I’ve had to cut out soy from my diet. I made these wraps using coconut aminos. Coconut aminos is similar to soy sauce but it’s sweeter and not as salty and well, made from coconuts. It’s a great soy alternative and adds a hint of umami to dishes.

Chicken Lettuce Wraps start with ground chicken being browned with onion, garlic and grated ginger. After that, coconut aminos, rice wine vinegar and chopped water chestnuts simmer with the chicken before being served on lettuce. I use butter leaf lettuce in my recipe but you can use romaine leaves or even serve the ground chicken on top of a chopped Asian salad.
