Lettuce Wraps are becoming a bit of an obsession in this family. We order them at restaurants, phone in take-out orders for them, and even make them at home. But, when I’ve got 15 minutes to come up with an easy, delicious meal, I head for the freezer – and tried and true faves. So, I’ve combined the best of both worlds in this recipe: the easiest Lettuce Wraps recipe you’ll ever make!
Lettuce Wraps Recipe: Three Ingredient Deliciousness
Here’s what you’ll need for your super easy, super delish lettuce wraps. Each recipe serves two adults.
- 1 head of Iceberg Lettuce
- 1 Tablespoon of vegetable oil
- 1 box of Ling Ling Yakitori Chicken Fried Rice
Lettuce Wraps Recipe Directions
These are super simple. Each box of Ling Ling Yakitori Chicken Fried Rice offers two full servings so, if you have a family of three, you may want to grab two boxes if using as an entree.
Keep the Yakitori Chicken Fried Rice in the freezer until ready to use. About 15 minutes before you’re ready to serve, cut both packages open. Add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil to skillet (make sure it has a lid that fits) and add both packages to skillet on medium high.
Stir occasionally, but you want to keep that lid on to not only thaw the white meat chicken, but to keep the rice tender.
While you’re waiting for the Yakitori Chicken Fried Rice to cook, remove the outer leaves from your Iceberg lettuce and wash, drain, and trim edges. I like to pitch the first two or three leaves because they’re not sturdy enough for the fried rice. Just saying.
Once all of the rice has fried to perfection, grab those lettuce leaves and spoon in a generous helping. I found that three larger leaves was perfect for The Kid and me for dinner.
Three Reasons Why I Chose Ling Ling
The choice to use Ling Ling Yakitori Chicken Fried Rice to make my lettuce wraps was obvious as soon as I saw the Nutrition Facts on the side of its box. First, Ling Ling Frozen Entrees are all natural. Secondly, it’s always available at my local Walmart right in the Frozen section’s Entrees area. Thirdly, the price is outstanding!
And thirdly, right now, head to the official Ling Ling website, and you can score a coupon for $2 off any Ling Ling Fried Rice, Noodles, or Dumplings.
In a nutshell, Ling Ling has five unique Fried Rice dishes (just in case chicken isn’t your bag), each based on authentic Asian inspired recipes from Japan, China, Korea and Thailand.
- Yakitori Chicken
- Yakiniku Beef
- Thai-Style Chicken
- Chinese-Style Vegetable
- Bibimbap Beef
You can bet I’ll be trying all of them. No kidding. The company uses an “Infusion Cooking Method”. Translation? Each noodle or rice grain is infused with Ling Ling signature sauces.
- Two Noodle varieties: Chicken Yakisoba, Drunken Noodles with Chicken
- Two Dumpling varieties: Chicken Dumplings in Chili Sauce and Pork Dumplings in Chili Sauce
Yeah. All natural, too. So, on those days that I want to stay in my yoga pants or sweats and not head to a restaurant, Ling Ling entrees are a great alternative. I found that the Yakitori Chicken Fried Rice tastes so similar to the fried rice we get at our local Chinese food restaurant that it’s really hard to tell the difference.
