These Spicy Chicken Lettuce Cups are filled with green beans and potatoes for a great healthy weeknight meal ready in 30 minutes!

hello everyone this is lauren evil spatula! I’m so excited to share these Spicy Chicken, Green Bean and Potato Lettuce Cups with you today! This healthy dinner is packed with flavors from spicy jalapenos to tangy mustard vinaigrette. Even though these cups are packed full of veggies, I guarantee your whole family will love them, picky eaters included!

For this recipe, you’ll start by boiling or roasting some chicken breasts, which you then either cut into bite-sized pieces or simply shred. For an easier no-fuss method, you can also choose to use a store-bought rotisserie chicken!

Spicy Chicken Lettuce Cups filled with chicken, green beans, potatoes, jalapeno slices, onions and topped with small vegetables

Then you basically add the rest of the veggies to the hot skillet with a little olive oil to crisp up the potatoes and give the green beans, scallions, and jalapeños a nice char. Since we sliced ​​the potatoes very thin, they cook very quickly. This helps the meal get to your table in under 30 minutes!

I like to use butter lettuce for the base of the cups, but cabbage or leaf lettuce would work too! A few sprigs of microgreens provide extra nutrition, but they’re not necessary to make these cups tasty.

I based this recipe on my Baked Potato Salad I am forever obsessed and it was only a matter of time before it became a main meal! If you look at that recipe, you’ll see that it has bacon in it…hint hint. Bacon is great in a mug too!
