Low Carb Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Advertisements

You’ll love the crunch of the lettuce, the slightly saltiness of the soy sauce and the ever so sweet richness of the hoisin sauce and ginger, in these tasty wraps.  They make a great appetizer or light main course lunch or dinner. I’ve made them skinny by browning the chicken without oil and draining the fat after browning.  To cut the sodium, I used reduced-sodium soy sauce and rinsed the water chestnuts in water to remove most of the sodium.  The rest of the ingredients are mostly the same as a regular recipe.

Each wrap has only 62 calories, 2 grams of fat and 2 Weight Watchers FreeStyle SmartPointsEnjoy 3 of them for dinner at 186 calories, 6 grams of fat and 5 Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints. It’s a real keeper!
