Friday Night Happy Hour Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Posted on August 5, 2012
Being that we have been on a bit of a health kick lately, we decided to make dinner at home before heading out for the evening.
I bought everything at SLU Whole Foods and was surprised to find out that they didn’t have ground chicken breast! SO, I chose ground chicken thigh instead…probably could have substituted with turkey too.
What you will need:
- 1 pound of ground chicken breast or thigh
- 1/2 onion (I used a Walla Walla), chopped
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 1 can of sliced water chestnuts, chopped
- 1/2 daikon radish, shredded for garnish
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tbsp ginger, minced
- 2-3 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 2- 3 tsp garlic chili sauce
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 1/2 tbsp honey
- Pepper, to taste
- Salt, to taste
- 10 lettuce leafs (I used butter lettuce)
First, in a skillet on medium high heat, cook chicken, onions, salt and pepper adding the minced garlic and ginger about half way through.
In a microwave safe bowl, combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, chili garlic sauce, pepper, honey, peanut butter. Zap it in the microwave for about 20 seconds and then add the sauce to the chicken in the skillet.
Add green onions and water chestnuts to the skillet and then cook for another couple of minutes on low heat.
To serve, just spoon the chicken into a lettuce leaf and top with a bit of the daikon radish. Very yummy and simple!
