Here is a super fun and simple recipe that comes together in just 15 minutes that is absolutely delicious — 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? The simple and easy-to-make peanut drizzle that goes RIGHT on top! This flavor booster makes all the difference in making this 15-minute dinner taste impressive!
