This healthy dinner is packed full of flavor from spicy jalapeños and a tangy mustard vinaigrette. Even those these cups are bursting with veggies I guarantee your entire family will love them, picky eaters included!
To make this recipe come together in a flash I would recommend using a rotisserie chicken but if you have cooked chicken on hand or have time to poach or roast the chicken that’s fine too. I’m always going to take the easy route 😉
I like to use butter lettuce as the cup base but iceberg or leaf lettuce will work too! A few sprigs of microgreens gives an extra punch of nutrients and they’re too pretty to look at.
I’ve based this recipe on my Grilled Potato Salad which I’m forever obsessed with, turning it into a main meal was just a matter of time! If you check out that recipe you’ll see that there’s bacon in the recipe…hint hint. Bacon would be terrific in the cups as well!
