Honey-Lime Chicken Cauliflower Rice Lettuce Wraps

0 from 0 ratings

I’m all for paleo-friendly tortillas like the one I used in my avocado cauliflower quesadilla recipe, but sometimes I’m also in the mood for lots and lots of greens. These honey lime chicken lettuce wraps are a hit even with my kids who happen to be a little picky with vegetables, so if you’re having trouble getting your little ones to eat their greens, be sure to give this one a try.
