Easy Rotisserie Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Peanut Sauce

Some nights, you just don’t want to think much about dinner. You’re tired and don’t want to cook, but want to grab something healthy. This recipe takes little time to prepare and, thanks to the reliable and simple store-bought rotisserie chicken, you can have it on a plate in record time!

Here, I used radicchio in place of traditional lettuce cups. Radicchio is not only beautiful, but I love the taste of it! It’s got a little bit of a bitter flavor to it, but so delicious. But the best part? I find that radicchio is much more sturdy than butter lettuce or iceberg, which tears very easily. You can most certainly opt to use another lettuce as your vehicle here, but I encourage you to try radicchio!

I simply filled the lettuce cups with the shredded, cooked chicken and some freshly cut veggies. The best part of these Easy Rotisserie Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Peanut Sauce?

    This recipe definitely delivers on flavor & ease. It only took a few minutes to pull everything together. BUT make sure you’re ready for raw radicchio, because wow it was bitter. And I usually like bitter things! I would probably use romaine or something next time (to keep the crunch/sturdiness but lose some of the bitterness).

    Will leaving the sriracha out drastically change the sauce?

      No! it definitely adds some flavor though– if you omit the sriracha, consider adding in some minced garlic for a little extra oomph.

      Hi Charlene! I’m sorry this will not print for you. Just checked on my end and it worked so I would restart your web browser or computer then try again to see if that is the fix.

      The second time I made this my radicchio was not cooperating to make into wraps so I tore it up, mixed it with some more greens, and used the sauce as dressing. Still so good!!
