I love chicken lettuce wraps and I came across a delicious and easy recipe in Cooking Light. I made some tweaks to the recipe, so my version is below. I like to serve this with brown or jasmine rice. Enjoy!
Ingredients:1/2 cup water 3/4 – 1 cup of vertically sliced red onion 1 pound ground chicken breast 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper Chopped water chestnuts (small can) Hoisin sauce (I get the 7 oz jar and use about ½ of it) Live Butter Lettuce (such as Live Gourmet)
1. Rinse whole lettuce leaves and pat dry, being careful not to tear them. Set aside.
2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add first 3 ingredients to pan. Cook 5 minutes or until chicken is done, stirring to crumble. Drain. Return chicken mixture to pan; stir in mint, cilantro, lime juice, red pepper, water chestnuts and hoisin sauce.
3. Spoon chicken mixture onto each lettuce leaf. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.
