Slow cooker Asian chicken lettuce cups: The lazy girl’s springtime recipe

I love using my slow cooker. I’ll happily use it all winter and summer long. The best part is the whole “set it and forget it” aspect. For these lettuce wraps, I threw in a few simple Asian ingredients, added in my chicken breast and slow-cooked until perfection. After it was done cooking, I added it to some crispy lettuce wraps and sprinkled it with toasted sesame seeds. If you love your wraps spicy, drizzle them with Sriracha sauce!
