Chicken Larb Lettuce Wraps

Swap out the lettuce for tortillas for a fusion Taco Tuesday

Here’s a simple recipe for chicken larb. There are many versions of this dish, sometimes using minced pork instead of minced chicken. Larb is known for its lightly spicy, citrusy, sweet and salty flavors. The common ingredients you’ll find are lemongrass, lime, red pepper flakes, and fish sauce. This refreshing dish can be served as a salad wrap over lettuce leaves. Chicken larb is great over rice too.
