Jamaican Jerk Chicken Lettuce Cups

People probably get sick of me saying “this is delicious” or something similar about these recipes I share. Well…it’s because I don’t share recipes that aren’t delicious!

This one, definitely my new favorite. If you like dynamic flavor…spice {but not spicy hot}…and lime…you’ll LOVE this!

Easy to make too!

INGREDIENTS:

for the chicken

  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp Jamaican jerk seasoning
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1 small lime
  • 1 medium bell pepper, chopped

for the lime mayo

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • course sea salt, to taste

for tacos

  • 1 head butter lettuce

DIRECTIONS:

Melt the coconut oil in a pan over medium heat. Add jerk seasoning & sauté for a minute to release the flavors.

Add the shredded chicken & cook 2-3 minutes to warm through. Crush and add thyme & adjust seasoning to your preference.

Turn off heat. Juice the lime and stir in lime juice. Finely dice bell pepper and combine with seasoned chicken.

For the lime mayo: combine minced garlic, juice of the lime & zest in small bowl.

Spoon some of the prepared chicken into the butter lettuce leaves. Top with diced bell pepper & lime mayo. Roll up and enjoy!
