Curried Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Apples

These chicken lettuce wraps are a breeze to throw together.  They’re a quick, easy and healthy twist to the often consumed chicken salad sandwich, but without mayo and with the addition of curry and turmeric and a sweet and crisp apple.  Serves 4

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 cup (250 mL) diced cooked chicken breast
  • 1/4 stalk celery, diced
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) apple, skin on, diced
  • Small handful cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) low-fat yogurt
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) curry powder
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Pinch each salt and pepper
  • 4 big leaves red or Boston lettuce (Be sure the lettuce you choose as your wrap is sturdy enough to hold in the chicken)

Mixing Instructions

In a medium bowl, combine diced chicken, celery, apple and cilantro.

In a separate small bowl, stir together yogurt, curry powder and lemon juice. Add to chicken mixture and fold together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Lay washed lettuce leaves on a clean workspace. Place one-quarter of the chicken mixture on each leaf. Tuck in the sides of lettuce and roll up from the end. Cut rolls in half and secure leaves with a toothpick.
