Feel like something fresh, crisp and healthy? Try this lettuce wrap recipe for a quick and easy lunch or appetizer.  You can make this in less than 15 minutes.  I threw this together for dinner lastnight and turned out great, will definitely make again only next time I get boneless chicken breast.

Hi Mai! How have you been? I'm sorry that I've been MIA lately. My kids started school and I really have no time to blog and my blogging is obviously suffering. I hope you and your hubby are doing well. This dish is one of my favorite dish! It's so healthy and perfect for me right now as I "should" be dieting... =P
