Thai chicken lettuce wraps…YUM!

The women’s Bible study group at my church  had a potluck today and after much consideration, I went with the Thai chicken lettuce wraps.  It’s quick and easy, tastes really good and is healthy and nutritious.  I used a recipe from one of the foodies on foodbuzz, Kathy from Vegas. (sorry your link’s not working). 

  • 3 boneless chicken breasts (grounded)
  • 2 tbsp minced onion
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • small can of diced water chestnuts
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp finely minced lemongrass
  • black pepper
  • 2 tbsp oil

I used  Bibb lettuce, grated carrot,  basil and cilantro for garnish. 

The only ingredients I left out of Kathy’s recipe is the fish sauce, and I used regular onion instead of green onions.

  • Heat oil in pan and add the ginger and garlic, sauté for 1 minute
  • Stir in the chicken and cook until done
  • Stir in all of the remaining ingredients and saute an additional 2 minutes (except the lettuce, carrot, basil, and cilantro)
  • Let the chicken cool off a bit, then serve a tablespoon or two of chicken on each lettuce leaf.  Garnish it with the grated carrot, basil, and cilantro.  Roll it like a taco AND….VERY IMPORTANT, serve with Thai sweet chili sauce. That sauce could become my new addiction :)
