Chicken Teriyaki Lettuce Wraps

Standard

I have to admit that this recipe was done as a desperate attempt to utilize all my bits and pieces of romaine before they went bad! lol… I had chicken breasts, onions and only 3 bell peppers… I had to think of something- I wanted to do fajitas but I didn’t have tortilla! lol So…of course, what do we do?…WE IMPROVISE! And how did it come out? Well… see for yourself!
