Chicken and Vegetable Lettuce BundlesWith the weather getting warmer I've been craving lighter meals with lots of crispy and refreshing vegetables.  Being short on time, I used some leftover roast chicken to make these delicious Chicken and Vegetable Lettuce Bundles.

Chicken and Vegetable Lettuce BundlesThis meal is easy and quick to put together. I like to serve it cold, and use leftover chicken straight from the refrigerator but you can warm up the chicken if you prefer it that way. Shred the amount of chicken you need.

Wash and slice your vegetables. I used carrots, cucumber, sweet red bell pepper and green onions. I like to use my mandolin to slice up the vegetables quickly. Add some fresh cilantro (you can leave it out if you don't like it) and some chopped peanuts. 

Pile all the vegetables up in little bundles on a large plate. Your guests can make their own bundles and choose the veggies they prefer. I like to serve these Chicken and Vegetable Lettuce Bundles with Hoisin sauce, but it's also delicious with the peanut butter dressing from this Asian Salad recipe.
