I is for Ice pt.II

If you make too much Ice, you could have an Iceberg. With Iceberg Lettuce, you can have an impromptu dinner party.

The Mrs was on the phone with our good friend Emma and we found out she didn't have dinner plans. I told her I had a head of lettuce and a few ideas, did she want to come over for dinner. She said yes, so while Emma and the Mrs took Zoey for a walk I tried my best to make something good for dinner.
Here's what happened.

Iceberg Lettuce Wraps
  • 1 head of iceberg lettuce
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1/3 cup of canola oil
  • 2T butter
  • 1t chili pepper
  • 1t cumin
  • 1/2t cayenne pepper
  • 1/4t cinnamon
  • 1 1/2t salt
  • 1 1/2t black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 avocados, chopped
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2/3 cup red onion, finely diced
Core the head of lettuce. Carefully separate the leaves, wash, and set on paper towels to dry.

In a large skillet, heat oil and butter on medium high heat. Combine all of the spices in a small bowl and rub the mixture onto the chicken breasts. Brown both sides of the chicken (~4 min. per side) Turn the heat down to medium low, and add in the minced garlic. As the chicken cooks, spoon a little bit of the oil and garlic over the breast every few minutes.
While the chicken is cooking chop your vegetables: avocados, tomatoes, and red onion, and place them in a large bowl.

When the chicken is cooked, let it rest for 2 minutes and then chop it in large chunks. Stir in the chicken into the vegetables.
Spoon the chicken and veggies in your lettuce leaf, and roll it up tightly.And then you eat it!
I hope you injoy!
