BBQ Lettuce Wraps

Hey everyone! Well I have been missing this blog!! I am happy to say that I have been cooking a lot and it makes me feel a better. We all eat around my parents table ever night and I am grateful for that. Cooking for my sweet dad, brother, kids and hubby makes me feel a little closer to mom. I am excited to try some new recipes too!! Here's a new one that is perfect for us on nights when you want something that isn't too heavy. It is light, low in calories and sooo good!

Ingredients: (this makes 4 wraps, but you adjust the sizing to feed a lot of mouths!)

2-3 chicken breasts, thawed and cubed
romaine lettuce
chopped tomatoes
1 can sweet corn, drained
bbq sauce
salt and pepper
optional: grated cheese

1. Super easy! Ok, heat a skillet to med heat. Season your chicken with salt and pepper. Cook in skillet until all edges are brown, about 5-6 minutes. Next, pour as much bbq sauce and you like over your chicken (I like saucy chicken :). Cook for another couple of minutes until cooked through.
2. While your chicken in cooking, chop your tomatoes and olives, drain your corn, grate your cheese, and wash your lettuce. You want to find lettuce leaves that are a good taco shape and will hold your filling.
3. When your chicken is done it is time to assemble. Hold your lettuce in your hand and fill with chicken, cheese, corn, tomatoes, and olives! Done! These are so good and I just made a batch of blueberry muffins to go along side. You are done!
* If you are going to make muffins make them first and pop them in the oven before you start, because you can make this whole meal while they are cooking. Then everything is done at the same time!


  1. Yum! Sounds so good. I love all your light, healthy meals like this. They are my favorite and so easy too.

  2. I am so moved by your love for your family; it touches my heart and I am so grateful for you. I love that you're cooking for your amazing dad - I know he is so grateful, Brit. :-) Your family is lucky to have YOU.
