I have been drooling over this recipe for weeks. The day I found it, I thought to myself “I’m going to add this to my list of delicious but easy dishes to make for my in-laws.” That is, my ongoing list of recipes to make for my parents-in-law when they stay here. I can’t have them think that I’m starving their son or that haven’t been working improving my cooking skills in the year and few months since I got married. Recipe ideas are welcome. I think this one will be a winner. It’s light and yet while low on calories and carbs, the chicken and lettuce are bursting with flavor.
