Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients

  • 5 lbs. chicken, boneless skinless, diced
  • 1 cup sweet onion, finely diced
  • 1 small can sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ginger

Instructions

Sauté the chicken in 2 tablespoons of canola oil. Once the chicken is fully cooked add the onions and water chestnuts. Stir and cook the onions until they begin to soften. Add the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, water, garlic and ginger.

Stir the ingredients together over low to medium heat. Serve the chicken in butterhead lettuce as a wrap.

Notes

Sides:  There are many sides that go great with this recipe, but this meal is deliciously paired with rice (white or brown) and vegetables.   In fact, I’m loving some of the new quinoa rice blends that are available.  It’s another great option to add to the plate!

Cooking!  This recipe is great in a skillet on the stove top or in an electric skillet, either way it’s total yum.

ENJOY – it’s worth the bite!
