Cherry Chicken Kale Wraps

Oh lettuce wraps… how we love you so. Lettuce wraps are so versatile and so tasty, not to mention very healthy! Using different types of lettuce not only provides a variety of nutrients but eliminates a lot carbs that breads and wraps have. This was our first time cooking the lettuce and having warm lettuce wraps. We decided to use kale as it has a very strong flavor plus loaded with nutrients. The kale leaves will be very soft so be careful when you are filling them. These will keep in the fridge for a few days so they are perfect to make ahead for tomorrow’s lunch. They can also be eaten cold. Makes 4 wraps

4 large kale leaves
½ cup chopped chicken, cooked
1 Tbsp cherries, diced
1 Tbsp apples, finely chopped
1 Tbsp onion, diced
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp black pepper

  • Fill a large stockpot half way with water and bring to a boil. Add in whole kale leaves and cook until soft, but still slightly tender. You don’t want them to fall apart while pulling them out.
  • While kale is cooking, combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl and mix together.
  • Gently remove kale leaves from water and fill with ¼ of the chicken mixture.
  • Carefully roll up kale and secure with toothpick if desired. Sprinkle rolled wraps with additional salt and pepper if desired.
