BBQ Pulled Chicken Lettuce Wraps


1 pound boneless, skinless, chicken breasts or boneless chicken thighs

1/2 - 3/4 cup BBQ sauce (no HFCS)

1 cup packaged shredded carrots or 2 medium carrots, shredded

2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

2 tbsp fresh lime juice

8 Bibb or romaine lettuce leaves


1. Place the chicken in medium saucepan and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer until chicken is cooked through, 15-20 min.

2. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and let cool slightly. Discard the water in the pan and wipe dry with paper towels. Use two forks to shred the chicken. Return the chicken to the pan and stir in the BBQ sauce. Cook over medium heat until heated through, about 2 minutes.

3. In a small bowl, combine the carrots, cilantro, and lime juice. Serve the chicken and some of the shredded carrot mixture in the lettuce leaves. Add sliced avocado or other toppings of your choice.
