Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These Lettuce Wraps I love these lettuce wraps with the Bayou Bourbon Glaze but I went to make them this week but didn't have any of the sauce left. I substituted the Tangy Thai Sauce from the Spring Summer catalog and it was absolutely delicious. My whole family loved them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Fast and Flavorful Dish! This meal was super easy to prepare. My kids "think" they don't like mushrooms so I chopped them up teeny-tiny so they looked like the ground chicken (they don't know what they like!!). They inhaled the wraps and my husband and I loved them as well! We drizzled a little extra Bayou Bourbon on our wraps because it is one of our favorite sauce!
