About these Chicken Sausage Lettuce Cups

Whats great about these chicken sausage lettuce cups is that they come together in under 20 minutes. Combine a few simple ingredients and you have a healthy, light meal. Perfect as a game day appetizer or quick on-the-go lunch.

For this recipe, I used butter lettuce. Butter lettuce is great because it is easy to pick up and it holds a good amount of the sausage mixture.

When prepping the chicken sausage for this recipe, be sure to slice it into coins. The round pieces of sausage will get browned and slightly crispy when sautéing in the pan. Most chicken sausage is already cooked through so you will just need to brown it in the pan. This recipe makes 2 servings. Please see below for nutritional information.

Storage

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for three to four days. Reheat in the microwave until heated through. Looking for more easy recipes? Try my spinach and artichoke dip or my tzatziki snack board.
