Kid Approved: Teriyaki & Cheese Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Finding low carb options for the kids can sometimes be difficult. This was something I happened to just dump in a pan and cook up. I had chicken, mushrooms, and sauce and had to come up with something.  Looking at the Teriyaki and cheese I thought for sure my children would not want to eat it. But no leftovers later it became a go-to meal in our house.

Usually, I would put it over rice and eat it like that or in a burrito but then when we decided to go low carb I began looking at all the low carb options. Some of our favorite low carb options for this is over cauliflower rice, in a low carb tortilla, or as a lettuce wrap. The lettuce wrap is our favorite which is why that’s the version I used here.

    When we find a meal that has all the essential nutrients that kids need and they approve, what a victory. I could make this with my daughter and I know she would approve it too.

    These look like they are incredible. I love that they are kid approved too because mine can be picky.

    I love teriyaki chicken! I made some recently and my boys also ate it, so we will be making more. This is completely different than what we make, though, so I’ll have to give it a try. I have to say, I have never put cheese on my teriyaki, but cheese is my weakness so I will definitely be trying it next time!

    Oh, wow, this sounds amazing! My kids would totally love this (and eat up every single bite), I bet! Thanks for the great recipe!
