These yummy cups make the ultimate Asian-style appetizer or light lunch!

With their scrumptious flavor and low-carb nutritional profile, Asian lettuce cups are getting a lot of attention lately. These nutritious Asian Ground Chicken Cups are no exception! The oh-so-simple recipe calls for lean ground chicken, clean veggies, and garnishes like bell pepper, and grated ginger. Large lettuce leaves cradle the chicken and veggie mixture and offer a cold, juicy contrast to the warm and chewy meat.

Bean sprouts top the vibrant lettuce cups, adding a delicate crunch to the dish. As a plus, we’ve chosen lower-sodium soy sauce to keep your salt intake in check. These yummy cups make the ultimate Asian-style appetizer to treat your dinner party guests or to enjoy as a light lunch!
