MADE WITH

BUTTERHEAD LETTUCE

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine marinade in a bowl and set aside. 
  2. No need to wash the Boston lettuce, as vegetables grown in the Vegehome are not subject to pesticides or bacteria. 
  3. Drizzle olive oil into a saute pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and let it cook until slightly golden.
  4. Add 3/4 cup of chicken broth to the pan and cover with a lid. Cook the chicken for another 7-10 minutes or until it reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Remove chicken from the pan and discard the broth. Place your cooked chicken on a plate or cutting board and use two forks to break up the chicken. 
  6. Add the other tablespoon of oil into the pan and cook your garlic and peppers until translucent. Add your chicken back into the pan, along with the marinade. 
  7. Stir to ensure all of the chicken is well coated with sauce. Divide the mixture among the lettuce leaves and serve!
