Jerk Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Jerk Chicken Lettuce Wraps are spicy, delicious and super healthy. You can start with my homemade jerk sauce or cut time by using a premade sauce like Walkerswood Jerk Seasoning. Perfect for an appetizer or light lunch or dinner and ready in 20 minutes. 

A Household Divided

 

Kenneth and I fought it out in the kitchen today. We took over @aspiretv’s IGTV for the #BattleoftheBytes and competed for the best appetizer. This house was divided as I hit him with a one-two-punch with my Jerk Chicken Lettuce Wraps. Imagine ground chicken smothered in a jerk honey glaze and topped with mango salsa and cilantro crema. This power punch appetizer hit all the palette points with spicy, sweet, tart, crunchy and creamy.

Kenneth attempted to fight back with his Oxtail Quesadillas and I’m not gonna lie, that combo of boursin cheese and oaxaca cheese against the oxtails drenched creole red gravy made for a formidable opponent but I do believe that I one the crown.  I just need to hear them tell me I’m Da Champ!
