Doesn’t that mango and avocado look so heavenly?! I use bibb lettuce for my lettuce wraps, but you can get creative and use any base lettuce you like!

Ingredients

Scale

Caribbean Pulled Chicken:

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless and skinless chicken
  • 1/2 cup diced canned tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon all spice
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut sugar

Mango Salsa:

  • 3 mangos, diced
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Juice of 1/2 lime

Everything Else:

  • Head of butter lettuce or lettuce leaves of choice
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Any other add-ins you’d like

Instructions

  1. Place all of the pulled chicken ingredients into the insert of your slow cooker. Mix to combine flavors, then put on high for 3 hours.
  2. While it’s cooking, prepare the mango salsa: In a bowl toss together all ingredients and set aside in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  3. When the chicken is done, shred with two forks and mix into the sauce. Let sit for 10 minutes, covered.
  4. Assemble lettuce wraps, top with mango salsa and other desired toppings, like avocado and tomato, and serve.

Notes

The juice from the chicken is delicious but makes the lettuce wraps a tad messy if you don’t slightly strain when assembling.

  1. What is a serving size? 1 or 2 lettuce wraps? Plan on making this week and want to be able to correctly figure out my macros! 🙂

  3. This made great soft tacos. The leftover liquid will make a nice base for lunchtime soup later. Layered the tacos with black beans & cauliflower rice. The chicken was amazingly tender. Great recipe!

  4. I made this exactly as written, except I left the cilantro out of the chicken. This was so good! Bold flavors that melded really well. We ended up eating the leftovers on corn tortillas which gave the meal the feel of a really good food truck. I’m usually meh on cilantro, but it was great in the mango salsa, I’m glad I left it in.
