Chinese Chicken Lettuce Wraps Recipe @pinch

These yummy chicken lettuce wraps are tops in flavor and texture. Ground chicken lightens up the wraps, but thanks to lime juice, soy sauce, diced bell pepper, and other seasonings these are full of flavor. We love the crunchy texture that water chestnuts added to the lettuce wraps. They're easy on the waistline and a tasty snack. Besides being delicious, this is a fun appetizer because you get to use your hands to hold the wraps!
