By now you probably know that I eat organicgirl greens every single day. Yes, even when I travel I look for organicgirl greens to pack for lunches, add to smoothies and enjoy for a snack. Did you know that butter lettuce and white cheddar dressing makes the best snack for on the go? I pour some of the dressing right into the butter lettuce container, dip and enjoy. It’s so good! If you haven’t tried it, you must. I guarantee that you will be hooked.

I also love using the butter lettuce leaves for these Asian Chicken Meatball Lettuce Wraps. The lettuce is fresh, crunchy and the perfect complement to the saucy chicken meatballs and mango slaw. This recipe comes together in less than 30 minutes. You can even prep the mango slaw in advance to save time. Cook the meatballs and layer them over a bed of mango slaw set on top of crunchy butter lettuce. Fresh wholesome ingredients create a tasty meal packed with nutrients and flavor.

Ingredients 

For the Mango Slaw

  • 1 ripe mango,, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups thinly shredded purple cabbage
  • ½ cup packed cilantro,, roughly chopped
  • 2 green onions,, whites and tender green parts thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce, (like sriracha)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

For the Meatball Glaze

  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce, (like sriracha)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

For the Meatballs

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 3 tablespoons panko bread crumbs, (you can omit, but the balls might be a little more difficult to roll)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 2 green onions,, whites and tender green parts thinly sliced

To Assemble

Instructions

  • To make the slaw, combine the mango, cabbage, cilantro and green onions together in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, honey, chili garlic sauce and salt. Pour the dressing over the slaw and stir until well combined. Cover and refrigerate to let marinate until ready to serve.
  • To prep the meatball glaze, in a medium bowl whisk all of the ingredients for the glaze together and set aside.
  • To prep the meatballs, in a large mixing bowl combine all of the ingredients for the meatballs and gently mix with clean hands until well combined. Using about a tablespoon of the meat mixture each, roll into mini meatballs.
  • Heat about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium/high heat. Cook the meatballs until they are browned on all sides and are cooked through. Turn the heat down to medium/low heat and add the glaze to the pan. Toss to coat the meatballs. Continue heating and tossing until the glaze has thickened and is clinging to the meatballs.
  • Serve the meatballs with the butter lettuce and mango slaw. Garnish with sesame seeds, fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of lime if desired. Enjoy!

  1. I NEVER comment on blogs, but saw this recipe on Pinterest and tried it. Have made it twice now and both times determined it is AMAZING! I don’t like spicy foods so I used Sweet chili sauce instead of sriracha and cut the amount called for in recipe in half. It was perfect! Otherwise, I followed recipe exactly as written. Even my picky eating son liked the chicken meatballs by themselves. The chicken meatballs are crazy tender and delicious. We added some plain white rice to the wraps at my daughters request and when we ran out of meatballs (4 of us ate them all) she ate the leftover slaw with the extra sauce and rice-yum!

  2. Hi, Could I use Sugar free Maple Syrup in place of the honey 🍯  I have made tgupis before and it is the Bomb 💣
