Chicken in Spiced Romaine Lettuce Sauce

I like to use lettuce in cooked dishes sometimes. I have added lettuce to soups in the past, and a stir fry or two. Don’t get me wrong, I love salads, but I just wasn’t in the mood for a salad today. I had a big head of Romaine lettuce and some chicken and used them together in this dish. I added some parsley and spices to brighten up the dish. It came out really good. I served it over brown rice, but it could be served over pasta, potatoes or just on its own. I used boneless thighs, but you also make this dish with bone-in chicken. Just allow more time to cook.

Chicken with Spiced Romaine Lettuce Sauce


1 medium onion, sliced

6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs


salt and pepper

6-8 cups shredded Romaine lettuce

1 c. chicken stock

1 t. cumin

1/2 t. cinnamon

fresh chopped parsley

hot pepper sauce

Heat oil in a large skillet and cook onion until golden. Meanwhile combine about 1/2 cup of flour in a plastic bag and season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken pieces and shake to coat. Add chicken to the skillet and brown chicken pieces on both sides. Cover and let the chicken cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes longer. Add lettuce and stir in along with the chicken stock, cumin, cinnamon, parsley and hot sauce. Cover and allow to cook for 5 -10 more minutes or until chicken in cooked through and sauce has thickened. Serve alone or over pasta or rice. Serves 2-3.
