Jerk Chicken Lettuce Wraps

These fully loaded lettuce wraps bring the taste of the tropics to your home. Jerk seasoning, which is easily found in the spice aisle at your grocery store, is a combination of sweet and savory herbs and spices. Boneless skinless chicken breasts are coated in the spice blend and slow cooked in a broth of ginger beer, vinegar, and soy sauce. The chicken is then tucked into tender bibb lettuce leaves with cabbage slaw, pineapple, mango, cilantro, and peanuts. The reserved cooking liquid subs as a tasty dipping sauce as well!
