Can I Use Iceberg Lettuce Instead?

Our recipe calls for Romaine or Butter lettuce, since they retain the perfect texture and have a delicious taste as well, which complements the dish wonderfully.

If you don’t have either of these, you could stick to using iceberg lettuce instead. It is another great kind you could use that has a great taste, and wraps up your filling easily too. 

Are Instant Pot Lettuce Wraps Healthy?

Lettuce wraps are generally considered healthy, and are often suggested for those following a low carb or keto diet.

When made right, they don’t just satisfy your taste buds, but also give you a good amount of fiber and other nutrients- perfect if you’re not a veggie person. 

This lettuce wrap in particular, is also rich in protein (thanks to the ground chicken) and contains chestnuts, which packs in folic acid, vitamin C and vitamin B.

All these nutrients will help with everything from boosting the immune system and improving digestive health to giving the body a good dose of antioxidants and reducing the risk of heart disease.

Can I Use Another Meat?

If you don’t have ground chicken or are just looking for other options, you can definitely tweak things around a bit in the recipe.

Ground beef can be another excellent stuffing option, and if you’re a vegetarian, you can try using soya granules or some chopped veggies too.
