Lettuce wraps are a popular appetizer or small entree at many Asian-style restaurants. They typically feature a chopped chicken dish that you can spoon into a piece of lettuce, which functions as a wrapper. While lettuce wraps seem like a good nutritional choice, they should not be considered a low-calorie food.
