Cajun Chicken Lettuce Wrap


The lettuce wrap is a fantastic idea.  Not only is it healthy but easy and fun to prepare.  I made my lettuce wrap with grilled cajun chicken, topped with sliced carrot and crushed almonds.


1 chicken thigh fillet

½ tsp Cajun spice (add 1 teaspoon for an extra kick)

1 carrot

2 large lettuce pieces

small handful of almonds

Salt and Peeper for seasoning



Preheat fan force oven to 200°C.

Add the Cajun, salt and pepper to the chicken thigh.  Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.  Once chicken is ready slice chicken.

Meanwhile use a peeler to make long thin carrot strips.  Layer the pieces of lettuce on a plate.

Add the sliced chicken, carrot and almonds on top of the lettuce and enjoy.
