This recipe is one I go to when I’m looking for something quick, easy, and healthy. Just toss all the ingredients into a skillet, scoop into pieces of lettuce, and eat. But be warned: have a lot of napkins on hand, as this one is messy!
Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps
(Original recipe from Taste and Tell)
¼ cup hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup water
1 lb ground chicken
2 large carrots, peeled and shredded
3 cloves of garlic, minced
4 scallions (whites and greens) chopped
1 large head of Bibb or Butter lettuce, leaves cleaned and separated
In a small bowl, combine the hoisin, soy sauce, and water.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken.
Reduce the heat to medium and add the carrot. Cook for 2 minutes, then add the garlic and the scallion whites and cook an additional minute. Stir in the sauce mixture and continue to cook until the sauce thickens, another 1-2 minutes.
To serve, place some of the mixture in a lettuce leaf and top with some of the scallion greens.
