Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Hummus - 7 minute dinner!

My apartment is unbearably hot right now. When I arrived home from work yesterday, there was no way in hell that I was going to turn on any appliance that generates heat. But a girl still needs to eat so you know what they say:

"Necessity is the Mother of invention"
                                                        - Plato

Now some of you may have tried lettuce wraps before and they are definitely a heathly option where you can really play around with the filling. You could get really fancy and cook up a Thai  or Greek version, but I was not down for that so I came up with the easiest, laziest recipe for lettuce wraps on the entire Internet! * This may not be true

These were surprisingly delicious! Not that I thought that would taste like tires but really the words "lettuce" and "wraps" don't normally cause your mouth to water. I LOVED how these turned out, crispy and full flavour; best of all they are a no cook, low-carb meal. 

Also, a tip for you, if you are on a second or third date and want to impress your partner with how healthy and genius you are by making these lettuce wraps......
  • First, good for you, you're a boss!
  • Second, don't do it! These are messy, drippy and there is no way you'll look cute eating them. 
So, if you don't want to horrify each other with your ugly eating faces, hold off on this one until the 7th to 10th date dinner.

Okay here's the way you do this thing.....

True talk, you see two responsible wraps on my plate. I actually ate four. Not even mad...
