Oh hey, these things are easy like Sunday morning. You just whip yerself up a batch of tzatziki sauce. Red onion, avocado, the chicken, and tzatziki sauce go in the butter lettuce for the swaddling. Swaddled food is good food. The tzatziki sauce? Drink it.

These lettuce wraps come together quickly! Like one episode of Jeopardy quickly. Which means they’re probably the best TV dinner food item ever, follow my logic? But heck, you can also make the wraps on the weekend, because let’s face it: weekends are for playing – ain’t nobody got time to put together a meal that takes longer than an episode of American Pickers.

Let’s win this game called life.
