- Put chicken breasts, red curry paste and salt in food processor. Pulse until ground. It probably looks gross now. Trust me, it will look much better after the next step.
- Spray some olive oil in a frying pan on medium high heat. Add chicken to pan and fry until it is cooked through.
- Add cucumbers and onions. Cook 2-3 minutes. Add cilantro.
- Spoon chicken mixture into lettuce leave. Top with Sirracha (if you dare). Note: It's also good with greek yogurt if the spice is too much for you.

Easy Fast Chicken Lettuce Wraps
This post has been a long time coming. Months ago, Cooking Light did a great issue on different ways of cooking chicken. One of them intrigued me; They talked about grinding skinless, boneless chicken breasts with strong spices or sauces in the food processor to make your own flavored ground chicken. To be honest, I was a little grossed out when I thought about grinding raw chicken, but I can tell you that it was totally worth it. After it was cooked and I had my first sample, this turned into a 'Best Decision Ever' moment. It's my new favorite way of making lettuce wraps.
Red Curry Chicken Lettuce Wraps
3 Chicken Breasts
3-4 Tbsp of Red Curry Paste
1 tsp of salt
3 Small Cucumbers (English or Gourmet Minis), chopped
3 Green Onions, chopped
1-2 Tbsp Cilantro chopped
Butter or Boston Lettuce leaves
