Thai chicken lettuce wraps

10 Jan

I’ve had this on my list for so long, and finally got around to making it tonight! Man I’m glad I did! These were light, delicious, just enough spicy, and pretty easy, to boot. This is the first time I’ve ever bought Thai peanut sauce, but I would recommend this brand. I was very pleased with the results. This one was a 2 person recipe, because my kids are not in to it. You could easily double the recipe to serve 4.

Ingredients:

– 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
– salt and pepper to taste
– 1/4 cup very thin sliced onion
– 1/4 cup very thin sliced red bell pepper
– 1/4 cup sliced water chestnuts, cut into quarters
– 1 tsp minced ginger
– 1 tbsp minced garlic
– 1/3 cup Thai peanut sauce (San-J brand recommended)
– 1 head Bibb lettuce

Directions:

1. Dice chicken into little pieces. I used frozen, thin sliced filets (Tyson select size) and left them slightly frozen to make them easier to cut. Cut into pieces about 1/4- 1/2 in square. Salt and pepper chicken.

2. Spray a medium sized skillet with non stick spray, and add chicken, onion, and peppers. Sautéed until chicken shows no more pink.

3. Add garlic, ginger, and water chestnuts, and continue cooking mixture until liquid cooks off.

4. Once liquid is cooked off chicken mixture, mix in sauce and cook on low just another minute or two, to heat sauce through.

5. Separate, rinse, and dry the leaves of your Bibb lettuce. Snap off long stems if needed, but be careful not to tear leafy part.

6. Divide chicken mixture into two equal parts, and serve with lettuce leaves for wrapping.
