Weight Watchers Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps Recipe (2 WW Smart Points)

Recipe for Asian chicken lettuce wraps from Weight Watchers: If I see Asian chicken lettuce wraps on an appetizer menu, I’m pretty much sold. My favorite restaurant to get them is (was!) P.F. Chang’s, where they are simply delicious, but loaded with 600 calories and 19 SmartPoints! (Not very smart, really)

So, I was ecstatic to see that Weight Watchers has a points-friendly (only 2 SmartPoints!) recipe for Asian chicken lettuce wraps as a video on their youtube channel:

Wait, whaaat? The only problem is that the video whizzes by in about 20 seconds, and you’ll probably be left with a puzzled look and a lot of questions. The good news is that we’ve done some research and found the complete recipe on weightwatchers.com. Here it is!

Here’s our WW (Weight Watchers) Asian Chicken Wraps Recipe:
