Curried Chicken and Apple Lettuce Wraps

This wrap is a play on the regular and sometimes boring chicken salad sandwich, but without mayo and with the addition of sweet and crunchy apple and the spice of curry and turmeric

1 cup (250 mL) diced cooked chicken breast

1/4 stalk celery, diced

1/4 cup (50 mL) apple, skin on, diced

Small handful cilantro, finely chopped

1/4 cup (50 mL) low-fat yogurt

1 tsp (5 mL) curry powder

Juice of one lemon

Pinch each salt and pepper

4 big leaves red or Boston lettuce (Be sure the lettuce you choose as your wrap is sturdy enough to hold in the chicken).

1.  In a medium bowl, combine diced chicken, celery, apple and cilantro.

2.  In a separate small bowl, stir together yogurt, curry powder and lemon juice. Add to chicken mixture and fold together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

3.  Lay washed lettuce leaves on a clean workspace. Place one-quarter of the chicken mixture on each leaf. Tuck in the sides of lettuce and roll up from the end. Cut rolls in half and secure leaves with a toothpick.

Serves four.
