Lettuce wraps are a lighter option for lunch or dinner, and these are filled with a delicious Italian-style topping plus herbs, spices and chicken.




To Serve:


  1. For the topping: Add the artichoke hearts, red onion, diced tomato, lemon juice, olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper to a medium bowl. Toss to combine and set aside.
  2. For the filling: In a separate large bowl, mix the olive oil, rosemary, red pepper flakes, garlic, lemon zest, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Add the chicken and toss to combine and coat the chicken.
  3. Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium heat. When hot, add the chicken to the grill, cook until well marked and golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Chop into small pieces and add the chicken pieces to a serving bowl.
  4. Lay out the bowl of chicken, the topping, the lettuce leaves, cheese, balsamic glaze, pesto and basil on a platter or board and have everyone build their own wraps.
  5. To make a wrap, take one of the butter lettuce leaves and fill with some of the grilled chicken. Add a teaspoon of prepared pesto, then spoon some of the tomato and artichoke topping onto the chicken. Drizzle over the balsamic glaze, sprinkle on the Romano cheese and garnish with fresh basil.
