The possibilities are endless with lettuce wraps. You can make them spicy, savory, a bit salty or plain Jane! In this recipe, you’re going to find explosions of flavor and a little kick in the heat department. This is a super-friendly weight loss recipe.
Cool Chicken Lettuce Wraps
3.5 oz chicken breast, minced
½ inch fresh ginger, minced (or dry, ground ginger)
Minced fresh garlic
Minced green onion
1 tablespoon Olive Oil, divided
1 teaspoon Asian Red Chile Sauce (or your favorite Chili Sauce)
1 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon wheat free Tamari sauce
Over medium heat, add ½ of Olive Oil, garlic, ginger and onion and cook until soft.
Add remaining Olive Oil and minced chicken breast to pan and cook thoroughly.
Add to meat mixture the chili sauce, Chinese 5 Spice, rice wine vinegar and Tamari sauce. Cook 5 minutes, stirring over low heat to reduce liquid.
Remove from heat, spoon into whole lettuce leaves and roll; Bibb lettuce, Boston lettuce or Iceberg are all great choices.
Bragg Liquid Amino can be substituted for Tamari, but it gives the dish an entire different flavor.
For extra crunch, top with bean sprouts.
