Lettuce is Gluten Free


Usually dining out gluten free means lettuce. I’ll either order a salad or a sandwich off the bun on a bed of lettuce. Because of this, I don’t often make salads at home, unless you consider a green monster a salad :)

But tonight after a long day at work, my super sweet fiancé reminded me just how good lettuce can be, as a wrap! I call it:

Orange you glad I didn’t say tortilla chicken wraps

The key ingredient: Orange Zest

Hello Vitamin C!! The best part about using orange zest in a recipe? You get to eat the slices for dessert!

Parrish followed a Rachael Ray recipe found here. He followed it exactly, except for leaving out the water chestnuts. For the hoison sauce, he used  San-J Asian BBQ Sauce. Yep, it’s gluten free! The result:

Parrish bought a local lettuce that’s grown hydroponically. It is PERFECT for a wrap! It super light and the flavor doesn’t overpower the chicken.

These will definitely be added to a regular rotation!

Thank you guys so much for the feedback on the wedding details! Keep them coming! :)

Okay, this was a quick post, but it’s T-minus 5 minutes until The Office!!
