This recipe for the Slow Cooker Honey Chipotle Chicken Lettuce Wraps is a favorite in our house. The sweet and savory flavor combination of honey, marinara sauce, and chili powder is pure perfection—and when wrapped in lettuce and paired with fresh cilantro and avocado, it can’t be beat. These lettuce wraps are perfect for a quick lunch, dinner, or snack!
And, bonus, the chicken is so simple to make. It’s cooked in a crockpot (or instant pot) and the marinade only requires three ingredients that you likely already have in your kitchen. It’s so easy to whip up a batch at the beginning of the week to use in lettuce wraps easily packed in storage containers for quick meals on the go.
Makes 4 servings
- 1/2 cup marinara sauce
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
- 2 heads of Bibb or Boston lettuce (8-10 leaves)
- 1 T chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 small ripe avocado, pitted and cut into small chunks
Combine marinara sauce, honey, and chili powder in a small bowl. Place chicken breasts in a crock-pot and then pour sauce all over. Cook on low for 4 hours. Once chicken is fully cooked, remove from the crock-pot / slow cooker and place on a plate, shred with a fork and place back inside the crock-pot with the sauce. Divide chicken into four portions and then divide between two lettuce leaves. Top with cilantro and avocado.
