Curried Chicken and Apple Lettuce Wraps

This wrap is a play on the regular and sometimes boring chicken salad sandwich, but without mayo and with the addition of sweet and crunchy apple and the spice of curry and turmeric.

Ingredients

1 cup (250 mL) diced cooked chicken breast
1/4 stalk celery, diced
1/4 cup (50 mL) apple, skin on, diced
Small handful cilantro, finely chopped
1/4 cup (50 mL) low-fat yogurt
1 tsp (5 mL) curry powder
Juice of one lemon
Pinch each salt and pepper
4 big leaves red or Boston lettuce (Be sure the lettuce you choose as your wrap is sturdy enough to hold in the chicken).

Directions

In a medium bowl, combine diced chicken, celery, apple and cilantro.

In a separate small bowl, stir together yogurt, curry powder and lemon juice. Add to chicken mixture and fold together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Lay washed lettuce leaves on a clean workspace. Place one-quarter of the chicken mixture on each leaf. Tuck in the sides of lettuce and roll up from the end. Cut rolls in half and secure leaves with a toothpick.

Serves four.
