Hey POPsters!!!

Wanted to share with you a super yummy recipe I made the other day that was uber clean and ultra delish!!! I made chicken lettuce wraps and ended up using not so much chicken because I volumized the “stuffing” with onions and celery! Was so good! Give it a shot! Here’s my recipe:

DIRECTIONS:

1. Bake or boil your chicken breasts then chop them into itty bitty pieces.

2. Then put some virgin coconut oil in a big wok or pan, get it super hot, and throw in your chopped onion (mmmm will smell so good) and chopped celery!

3. Next place the chopped chicken in. Season with some fish sauce, stevia, and black pepper to taste. If you don’t like these ingredients, no worries, you can season however you desire.

4. Then wash your iceberg lettuce, chop in half. Make sure to chop the correct way…you will want to slice that nubbin on the bottom of the head in half. If you don’t chop thru that, you’re lettuce cups won’t be the right kind of cup.

5. Serve by putting the “stuffing” inside a leaf, wrap it up, and eat!!!! You don’t even need sauce.

Enjoy! Tweet or instagram me pics if you do this!

  1. I just made this without the iceberg lettuce because I ran out of it. Still extremely delicious with some brown rice. Just wondering what much calories is this? o.o

  2. Just ate this and it’s delicious! Definitely making it again for my boyfriend!

    Can you do more videos for the cheap eats series? I remember you talking about doing a whole series and this is the only one I have seen :(

  4. Thinking of trying this for supper, can I use peanut oil instead of coconut oil? I’m trying to use what I have in the house for the time being..?Any one know

  5. I wanted to thank you for this great read!! I definitely loved every bit
    of it. I have got you bookmarked to check out
    new stuff you post…

  6. This looks amazing!!! I was wondering does anybody know the nutritional information for this? I know its super healthy but I’m recording what I intake every day in comparison to what I expend.
    And also what is a substitute I could use for the fish sauce?

  7. I love cheep eats becuase it shows people you can eat clean and healthy on a budget! this is great for students and part time workers:) I might try this out with some tuna or salmon:) thanks! xo

  9. This sounds delicious! Will try it out tonight, except I’m not a huge fan of celery, so I will be it for red bell peppers .)

  15. happy birthday cassey!! <3

  16. Where in the world do you find chicken breast at 1.99$\lbs??? In canada it’s AT LEAST 8$\lbs

  17. Happy birthday Cassey!! Hope it’s been great :)

  18. Mayra Miranda says:

    I’ve done something similar but with ground turkey instead. You can also add tomato, bell peppers, & other veggies to give it a different (but still yummy) taste! :)

  19. These look TOTES AMAZE must try soon!

  20. Looks Delish! … I only wish produce and chicken was that cheap in DC!

  21. i’m gonna give it a try tomorrow! looks delicious.

  22. those looks yummy! i’ll use fish instead of chicken, since i’m pescetarian :)

  23. These look great!! I was trying to think of something new for lunches. :)
    P.S. I haven’t been able to find the Fitness Journal in the online store. Are you not going to do those anymore?
    Thanks for all you do!!
    ~A~

  24. These look delicious. I have made lettuce wraps before, but I have not used the fish sauce. I am going to give it a try. Thanks.

  25. Katie Leigh says:

    Those look pretty good! I’m def going to have to make those!! :))

  26. Thanks Cassey! That looks delicious. I’ll def. be trying that.

  27. I think the chicken looks yum without the lettuce! Definitely trying this tonight. Thanks Casey! <3

  28. Some folks on FB page asked about making this vegan, or meatless. You could use tofu or edamame in place of the chicken, or even a mixture of tofu and mushrooms, to have that nice chewy bite.
    And to up the nutrition, throw in all the other veggies you have in the fridge, especially if you have some dark leafy greens.
    I think lettuce wraps are a great idea – yum!

  29. Ivori Rose says:

    These lettuce wraps do not look appetizing.
    I think a lot of people are confused on how to eat clean, because there are different levels of Clean Eating; just like how there are different levels of Vegans, Vegetarians, Fruitarians, Pescetarians, ETC. For example, I know Vegetarians that will accuse fellow Vegetarians of not being a true Vegetarian, because they are not buying organic, or not buying from a Farmer’s Market, or did not grow the fruits and vegetables themselves. There are a lot of extremities in the world !

  30. I love lettuce wraps!! My fave filling is tuna love it! Will try this recipe soon!!!

  31. teilzeitDAU says:

    oh wow, chicken breast for 1.99/lb? jeeeeez! you guys live in clean food heaven! :)

    chicken breast costs around 20$/lb (yes, 20!) over here… #welcome-to-the-downside-of-living-in-a-high-income-country :)

  32. YYYUUUUUUMMMMMMMM! CANT WAIT TO GET HOME AND TRY!

  33. Margaret Hoar says:

    Looks so Yumm-o!

  34. Hey Cassey,

    I do love this kind of healthy recipe. I’m used to do it with an even easier way:
    - take your iceberg lettuce and do the same
    - fill it with some ham or shrimp (in slice or in pieces)
    - add some cottage cheese (yummy)
    - wrap and eat.
    That is soooo refreshing for summer! I almost it some everydays!!!
    xx
