Asian Chicken Lettuce Rolls

Our Asian Chicken Lettuce wraps showcase a new blend, General Tso’s Secret. This blend is savory and garlicky and a little bit funky, and full of umami so it can complement a wide range of foods. We decided to pair it with Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps in order to experience the way General Tso's Secret plays with chicken, as well as with the crisp textures of water chestnuts and cucumbers. If you're not into either of those vegetables you can switch up those two ingredients! Carrots, bell peppers, daikon radish… all of these are equally delicious vegetables that would serve the same purpose. The ultimate goal is to get a tasty lettuce wrap that's savory and a bit spicy, with deeply resonant chicken and a terrific and flavorful crunch.
