Spicy Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Curried Yogurt Dressing


These spicy chicken lettuce wraps prove that low carb-meals don't have to be bland or boring. I topped the wraps with a condiment that is full of flavor as well. 

I actually made this curried yogurt dressing because a Kitchen Simmer follower asked me to work on a curried non-mayo spread that can be put on sandwiches and wraps.  This dressing/spread uses plain yogurt instead of mayo so it's guilt-free enough to add an extra dollop or two. 

I spiced it up with curry powder and red chili powder. Then I added some sweetness with fresh mango.  If you don't have fresh mango, you can always substitute some spicy-sweet mango chutney like Major Grey's Mango chutney. 

The dressing also makes a great dip for veggies and tortilla chips.  I am a big fan of yogurt and I always use either Greek Yogurt or full fat plain yogurt when I make any of my recipes.  These days,  I actually no longer even buy sour cream.  When I make Mexican food at's all about yogurt in our house.
