  • 8 little gem lettuce leaves
  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 3cm fresh ginger, peeled and sliced very finely

  5. Put the chicken mixture back in the pan and continue to cook at medium heat until the sauce is reduced and the mixture becomes dry.
  6. Lay out a lettuce leaf and spoon the cooked mixture into the middle and fold into a wrap, and eat immediately.
