Chicken and Vermicelli Noodle Lettuce Cups


Not quite your average taco night and totally different flavour combinations but hey we can all change things up a little why not Asian inspired. By swapping a flour tortilla or corn taco to a lettuce cup you have an more nutritious meal. My kids loved this and the bubs had the chicken filling and noodles in a bowl so it was easier for him to eat.

Alright so its not tacos but still tastes amazing!
