These wraps make a great light dinner after a hot summer’s day. Put the chicken in the Sun Oven, and maybe some rice to complete your meal, during the day and you’ll be able to prepare a tasty dinner, without heating up the kitchen, after the sun has set. Any left over solar cooked chicken meat will work in this recipe, but Chicken with Two Lemons is the one that I prepare most often.

Lettuce Wraps with Sun


2 cloves garlic, finely minced

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

3 tablespoons soy sauce

2 teaspoons sugar

1 teaspoons sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 cup shredded solar cooked chicken meat

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

12 Bibb or iceberg lettuce leaves, rinsed, drained, and dried

Prepared peanut sauce for serving


In a large bowl, mix together the garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes. Add the chicken, cilantro, and mint; toss to combine. Let marinate for 5 minutes. Spoon about 2 1/2 tablespoons of the chicken mixture in to the center of each lettuce leaf. Serve with peanut sauce.
