by brenda on September 29, 2011

Quick! Hurry! Before the summer veggies go away for many long months, make these Italian Chicken Lettuce Wraps that I made up, and serve them with this yummy Cucumber Tomato Salad! Hurry, I tell you! 🙂 🙂
This was one of my favorite recipes that I created over the summer for our weekly Meal Plans. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Italian Chicken Lettuce Wraps


2 lbs ground chicken

2 small onions, chopped fine

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 medium yellow squash, diced

1 bell pepper, diced

1 small bunch basil, chopped

salt & pepper

1 recipe Honey Italian Dressing

1 head romaine lettuce



Cook the ground chicken with the onions, garlic, squash, pepper and basil. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the mixture and toss.

Wash the lettuce and rip into big leaves, set aside on paper towels to dry. Serve the meat mixture on large lettuce leaves with Honey Italian Dressing drizzled on top.


Honey Italian Dressing


1/4 c red wine vinegar

1/2 c extra virgin olive oil

2 TB lemon juice

2 TB honey


Whisk everything together and drizzle on salad or lettuce wraps.
