Hump Dayyyy! Y’all – CrossFit Games week is here!! I’m pretty excited about it. I watched a little bit of the teens and masters go yesterday and today. 60 + year olds deadlifting heavy weight and climbing ropes is pretty cool. And inspiring. You should check it out. 

But I want to see this trail run and this deadlift ladder they made the individuals do today. That’s pretty cool, indeed. Is it weird that I would kinda like waking up at 3:30, jumping on an airplane and just a little bit later, doing an uphill trail run? I say that now. I’m sure it was hell on earth. But that’s what makes the CF Games so great, right? Apparently they told them to watch out for mountain lions. Now that I wouldn’t like, but I bet it would make me run faster. 

Here’s the recipe I talked about a little over a week ago. It goes great with that pico, which I linked in the actual recipe. If you love summer, limes, grilling, and Mexico, check it out. 

 

Fiesta Lime Grilled Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Makes 4 servings

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

Total Time: 25-30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium chicken breasts – thawed and ready to throw on the grill.

  • 2 limes – sliced. You will need about 3/4 lime per chicken. Save the last quarter for squeezing on wraps at the end. 

  • 4 romaine lettuce leaves

  • pico de gallo – use the recipe I told you about last week. 

  • garlic powder – to taste.

  • cauliflower rice – optional

Instructions:

  • Slice limes. Use 3/4 of lime per chicken. Use the last quarter for squeezing lime juice on wraps at the end.  

  • Throw chicken on grill, on low heat, under covered grill, until done. Make sure your chicken is cooked. It took us about 15 min for chicken to cook all the way.

  • While chicken is grilling, add slices of lime to chicken. This will allow the lime juice to seep into the chicken as it’s cooking, making your chicken taste all limey and good and stuff.

  • Once chicken is halfway done (try about 10 minutes in, flip chicken on grill. This is kinda annoying because you have to remove the limes before you flip the chicken, and then reposition the limes back on the chicken. It’s worth it though. 

  • After chicken is cooked, remove from grill. Smell it, drool over it, and then chop it up. 

  • Wash romaine lettuce leaves. Make sure they are flat and open. Add chicken. 

  • Then, add your pico. 

  • Add cauli rice, if ya want. 

  • Last, squeeze remainder of limes on wraps. 

Notes: This recipe goes great with the pico I told you about last week. The cauli rice is optional, but it helps make this recipe tasty and filling.
