Sally's Recipe Of The Week: Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Serves 2 to 3
Sponsored by: The Cleveland Clinic
Here is what you will need:
1 pound ground chicken
1 to 2 TBS olive oil
2 carrots peeled and shredded
1 yellow or red bell pepper, diced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
1 onion, diced
3 to 4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 TBS grated fresh ginger
1 TBS Sriracha (optional)
2 TBS soy sauce
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 TBS rice wine vinegar
Salt and pepper
Wash the lettuce very well and let it dry, then put in fridge to keep cold for serving.
Prep your food!
Heat oil in a fairly large pan. Add onions and chicken and season with salt and pepper.
When the chicken starts to brown, add in peppers.
Add in the hoisin, soy, rice wine vinegar, Sriracha, garlic and ginger.
When chicken is completely cooked, taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
Serve with shredded lettuce and some extra hot sauce if desired. You can also serve with scallions, I just did not have any. Another good ingredient is sliced water chestnuts, just toss them in when you add the garlic.
