Cilantro Chicken Salad in Lettuce Cups

February  1, 2010
Author Notes

This is a great way to use left over chicken and a lighter take on the typical sandwich. Dark meat is okay if you don't have white. The cilantro adds a nice touch and the carrots, cucumber and green onion are refreshing. (use organic ingredients if you can--it makes a huge difference in taste I think...) —coffeefoodwrite
