Meal Prep Thai Chicken Lettuce Cups (Whole30 Paleo)

Meal Prep Thai Chicken Lettuce Cups (Whole30 Paleo) – Asian inspired ground chicken lettuce cups make the best meal prep lunch!  Tons of protein, flavor, and crunch in this nutritious meal.  Whole30/Paleo approved!

I’m so excited to share this week’s Meal Prep recipe!  If you’re like me and crave Asian and Thai inspired flavors, you’re going to love this one!  These Thai Chicken Lettuce Cups really hit the spot for a healthy lunch that is full of great flavor.

Lately lettuce wraps/cups are my favorite way to prep ahead lunch.  It’s so easy to customize with some flavor-boosted protein, crunchy veggies, and maybe a little sauce or other toppings.  These Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps are one of my all time favorites!

To bulk up the meat mixture for this recipe, I combined ground chicken and finely chopped mushrooms.  The mushrooms blend nicely with the meat, bring added nutrition, and easily absorb the Thai inspired flavors of the sauce.  The sauce used to season the meat/mushroom mixture couldn’t be easier with only three ingredients!

Pro Tips for Meal Prep Thai Chicken Lettuce Cups
