Which Lettuce Is Best For Wraps?

Any green leafy lettuce can be used for lettuce wraps. However, the most popular lettuce for wraps is Boston bib lettuce, also known as butter lettuce or romaine hearts. I think butter lettuce is the best for lettuce wrap because of its silky texture.

Add the chicken thighs and cook it for 8 minutes, periodically stirring, until the chicken is browned.
