How to Store
Chicken Lettuce Wraps taste best when eaten fresh but there’s nothing wrong with eating leftovers the next day. You can wrap the lettuce around the filling like a burrito and then wrap the lettuce in butter paper or plastic wrap, this will help in preparing a serving. Put the wrap in the fridge and eat it the next day without the hassle of assembling it again.
Another trick you can use is to store the chicken, veggies, and sauces separately in airtight containers, preventing anything from soaking up any juices and becoming soggy. Store the containers in the fridge and consume them within 10 days. You can use the sauce mixture with other dishes too.
