These chicken lettuce wraps are a light and fresh recipe that is perfect for lunch or an easy dinner.



For the sauce

  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice (about 6 small oranges)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp soy sauce

For the wraps

  • 2 cups cooked chicken, diced
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup butternut squash, julienned
  • 1 cup mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • Salt & pepper
  • 5 romaine lettuce leaves
  • Spinach leaves (optional)


  1. In a medium sauce pan, heat the sauce ingredients at medium heat until boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir continually until sauce has thickened (about 5-10 minutes). Remove from heat.
  2. In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil and cook the mushrooms and butternut squash until tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the chicken and veggies to the sauce and stir together.
  4. Prep the lettuce by washing the leaves and cutting off the thin, tougher part of the leaf (closest to the stem).
  5. In the center of the lettuce, spoon out about 1/3 cup of the mixture. Top with spinach, and roll up. Hold the wrap together with toothpicks.
  6. Enjoy your wraps with a warm or cold filling.
