Pan Asian Lettuce Wraps & Citizen Chef GIVEAWAY!

pan asian lettuce wraps

I love lettuce wraps. They are so fresh and crunchy, and the options are endless when it comes to choosing what ingredients you want to add in. I am still adjusting to my new full-time work schedule, so it has been important for me to find ways to cut down cooking time when I get home at night after a long day. At the same time, I don’t want to start eating a lot of unhealthy packaged foods to save time.

I love finding new products that fit my cooking style, like Citizen Chef’s line of fresh simmer sauces! Their sauces are 100% natural, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and low-sodium (so hard to find simmer sauces with low-sodium these days!!). Citizen Chef is a healthy foods company based in San Francisco, CA, and are expanding their products to major grocery stores around the country. Their motto is “making fresh and healthy quick and convenient.” The other day I tried their Pan Asian Orange simmer sauce with these chicken lettuce wraps, and they came out delicious! I am totally addicted to this sauce. In fact, I loved it so much, I wanted to share a variety case of Citizen Chef fresh simmer sauces with one of you!

    What a great looking simmer sauce. I love lettuce cups too as does everyone in my family – it’s an often requested dish. Everyone loves the crunch and the combination of textures and flavours and of course, for my fussy uni students – no carbs! xx
