- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 ripe mangos, peeled and diced
- 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- Juice of 2 limes
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 8 large lettuce leaves, for wrapping
- Start by marinating the chicken. In a bowl, combine the olive oil, lime juice, minced garlic, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
- Add the chicken breasts to the marinade and coat them thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld.
- Preheat your grill or stovetop grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the marinated chicken for about 6-8 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove from heat and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it into strips.
- Now, assemble your lettuce wraps. Take a lettuce leaf, add a few slices of grilled chicken, diced mango, red bell pepper strips, and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro.
- Drizzle a little extra lime juice over the top for an added burst of flavor.
- Wrap up the ingredients in the lettuce leaf, securing it with a toothpick if needed.
- Repeat the process for the remaining lettuce leaves.
- Serve your Chili Lime Mango Chicken Lettuce Wraps with a side of extra lime wedges and enjoy!
