Chicken Fajita Lettuce Wraps

On a hot day you may not want to turn on the oven and that is where a whole cooked chicken from the grocery store comes in very handy and can be found at Loblaws, Food Basics and Costco for $7- 10. There are many options when you have a flavorful rotisserie chicken ready to go (including lunch sandwiches), and fajitas is one of my favorites.

Thinly slice and saute the following in coconut oil (or your choice of oil):

  • 1 sweet onion
  • 1 large bell pepper
  • 1.5 cups of mushrooms

While your veggies are softening in the pan:

  • Tear and rinse large pieces of iceburg lettuce
  • Grate cheese (about 1.5 cups)
  • Cut cherry tomatoes in half
  • Slice avocado
  • Slice cooked chicken
  • Open salsa and sour cream

Once the vegetables are tender, layer all ingredients into a large leaf of clean dry lettuce, top it with salsa and sour cream (or Greek yogurt), roll it up and enjoy. This is tasty and very quick but if you are serving it to friends, you can fancy it up by presenting your toppings in colourful serving dishes. Of course you could also use tortillas for a more hearty meal.
