Paleo Chicken Lettuce Wraps, A Healthy, Asian-Inspired Flavor

I’m very excited today, because we are going to start working on a new layout for our website! One that will allow printing from the web and organized body layouts and it will be beautiful!…I hope.

Today’s recipe is SUPER easy to make. It takes a few minutes to throw everything together – which is great if you are in a rush…or have kids….or just don’t really want to spend a lot of time cooking a tasty meal!

Recipe: Paleo Chicken Lettuce Wraps


  • 4 cups Chicken
  • Paleo Adobo Seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 cups diced White Button Mushrooms
  • 2/3 cup Water Chestnuts
  • 4 Garlic cloves
  • ½ cup toasted Almond Slices
  • 4 Green Onions
  • 3 Tbsp Honey
  • 2 Tbsp Water
  • ½ cup Coconut Aminos
  • 3 Tbsp Coconut Vinegar
  • 2 tsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 tsp Mustard Powder
  • 8 dried Arbol Chile Peppers
  • ½ tsp Coarse Sea Salt
  • ¼ tsp White Pepper
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Shredded Carrots


  1. Combine the honey, water, coconut aminos, coconut vinegar, sesame oil, mustard and de-stemmed, minced arbol chiles. Blend until incorporated.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a pan over medium-high (~7) heat. Lightly dust the chicken with adobo seasoning and cook until almost completely cooked through. Drain off the excess grease.
  3. Slice the mushrooms, water chestnuts and diced the green onions (reserving some for garnish). Add the blended sauce, mushrooms, water chestnuts, almond slices, sea salt and white pep­per to the chicken. Cook until the mushrooms and water chestnuts are warm and the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Tear leaves from the lettuce to form bowls. Add some of the chicken mixture to the lettuce and top with a small pile of shredded carrots. Gar­nish with green onions.
