Cilantro Lime Dressing:
1 cup packed cilantro
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
¼ cup lime juice
¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
½ tsp sea salt
½ tsp freshly ground pepper
A pinch of minced garlic
2 chicken breasts, cubed and pre-cooked in a pan with extra-virgin olive oil
¾ cup diced red bell pepper
4 green onions, thinly sliced (about ½ cup)
¼ cup cilantro lime dressing (from the dressing ingredients)
6 large Bibb or iceberg lettuce leaves
In a blender or food processor, combine the packed cilantro, extra-virgin olive oil, lime juice, orange juice, sea salt, freshly ground pepper, and minced garlic. Blend until smooth and well combined to make the cilantro lime dressing.
Take the pre-cooked and cubed chicken breasts and set them aside.
In a large bowl, combine the diced red bell pepper and thinly sliced green onions.
Pour ¼ cup of the cilantro lime dressing over the diced red bell pepper and green onions. Toss well to coat the vegetables.
Add the cubed, pre-cooked chicken breasts to the bowl with the dressed vegetables. Mix everything together until the chicken is well coated with the dressing.
Take the large Bibb or iceberg lettuce leaves and wash them thoroughly. Pat them dry with a clean towel.
Spoon the chicken and vegetable mixture onto each lettuce leaf, dividing it evenly among the leaves.
Drizzle additional cilantro lime dressing over the top of each lettuce wrap.
Serve the chicken lettuce wraps immediately, and enjoy!
