Raspberry Chicken Lettuce Wraps
photo by anniesnomsblog
- Ready In:
- In a medium-size bowl, whisk together raspberry preserves, oil, vinegar, Dijon mustard and salt and pepper.
- Add scallions and raspberries to vinaigrette. Add diced chicken and toss to combine with vinaigrette.
- Arrange lettuce on individual plates. Spoon chicken mixture over lettuce just before serving.
These are perfect as a full meal as well as appetizers. We just make more of them! I use Simply Fruit raspberry preserves to cut back on sugar and I like the taste better. If I don't have Simply Fruit on hand, I just smash more raspberries and that works perfectly. I love the freshness of it. I sometimes make sweet potato dollars as a side and some steamed broccoli or grilled asparagus with this and it's a great meal. I don't change this recipe in any other way. Like I said, it is perfect. BTW- it IS a wrap, not a salad, but I guess you could turn it into a salad, but it really does just knock your socks off as a different sort of lettuce wrap than the usual.
I thought these turned out great. They are much different that I was expecting, but it turned out to be a nice light tasty summer meal. I was a little confused. All the reviews had it as a salad, but the recipe title had it as lettuce wraps, so I went with the lettuce wraps. We added a little white rice to each wrap, and I think next time I may add some slivered almonds. I really liked the dressing.
A very nice quick salad. I ended up forgoing the chicken so I could make a vegetarian side salad and halved the recipe to make a better serving for two people--it was still absolutely perfect. I loved the taste that the dijon and white wine vinegar add to it. A lovely spring/summer salad that is definitely worth a try!
Beautiful salad that is to the table in 15 minutes; I loved the raspberry dijon vinaigrette - I did use raspberry vinegar in place of white wine vinegar. I used frozen berries, then added the warm chicken to the mixture, it worked perfectly. Truly divine! I served over mixed greens. Made for PAC Spring 2008.
