Easy Mediterranean Inspired Lettuce Wraps

I've put off posting this because I accidentally formatted the SD card with the photos. But then thought, it's been so long since I posted a recipe... I'll update it next time I make these and take photos.


    8 large iceberg lettuce leaves
    2 Tbsp coconut oil
    1 Tbsp garlic, minced
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    1 large boneless, skinless chicken breast (approx. 575 gr), finely chopped
    1 Tbsp Garam Masala
    1 tsp Cinnamon
    1 Tbsp sumac
    1/4 tsp garlic salt


Rinse and pat dry lettuce leaves. Set aside.
Heat coconut oil in large skillet on med-high heat. Add garlic and onion. Sauté until edges of onion brown.
Reduce heat to medium. Add chicken and spices. Cover. Stir occasionally until chicken fully cooked.
Place 1/8 mix into each lettuce leaf. Roll and serve.

Optional, melt soft goat cheese in microwave and use as a sauce.
