I believe in giving into food cravings – but in a smart way. While I love good take out I also love to make delicious, less salty versions at home! This week I needed chicken lettuce wraps. Crunchy water chestnuts, sweet and salty sauce wrapped up in cold lettuce – nom. It was surprisingly easy and delicious.
Chicken (or turkey) Lettuce Wraps
- 1 lb ground chicken (or turkey if like me you can’t find chicken. A ground bird is a ground bird)
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 can water chestnuts, drained
- 3 cloves of garlic chopped
- 2 t fresh ground ginger
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 1/4 cup Hoisin sauce
- 2 T low sodium soy sauce
- 1 T rice wine vinegar
- Salt to taste
- Butter lettuce!
Brown the meat! Add Hoisin, soy sauce, vinegar, onion, ginger, and garlic! Cook until the onions are translucent, stirring regularly. Once the onions are cooked and liquid begins to thicken into a sauce, add the water chestnuts and green onions! Stir to coat and serve in each lettuce cup!
You can add more hoisin/soy/vinegar if you want more sauce! Yummy
