Chicken Lettuce Wraps

A restaurant in my area inspired me to create these Chicken Lettuce Wraps. I always use to order these when we went there to eat because I assumed the wraps were Low in Carbs. Little did I know that the main ingredient in the sauce was hoisin sauce that is full of sugar!

This lead me to try to make a mock version of this great dish with a mock hoisin sauce that is Low Carb. I am not really one for making many Asian inspired meals, but I have to admit that I love these wraps. I also love that this dish is a mix of chicken, pine nuts, and tofu.

These are great for lunch or dinner. Your family will love these!
