Delicious and Nutritious first link up on Thursdays!

Starting today and every Thursday I will have a "Delicious and  Nutritious" link up where you can share any healthy recipe you have made. Anything like main dishes, appetizers, drinks, desserts, sides or any recipe that you have changed to make a little healthier. If you have the nutrition information I would love that to be noted as well. I can't wait to see all of the healthy inspiration!! Here is my new button to add to your post. I couldn't wait so I have posted early!

So I was craving PF Chang's lettuce wraps one day and this is what I came up with! 
 Teriyaki chicken lettuce wraps   
Pin It


I will usually buy my chicken than marinade it in ziplock bags and freeze them till I want to use them
but if you are making it fresh let the chicken marinate for 30 min.

fry it up with cooking spray

Blend it

Than wrap it in lettuce leaves

* if you want a little more filler I sometimes add some brown rice on top of the chicken

The ingredients 
Package of chicken breast tenders 
Teriyaki marinade (2 tbs per 4oz of chicken)
6 lettuce leaves 

Makes 3 servings
