Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Who doesn’t love lettuce wraps? As soon as Recipe Blogger Mama posted her recipe, I found the courage to make them. My version replaces the white onions with water chestnuts for a good crunch. Also added the Saifun noodles.

1 pound ground chicken
1 head of iceberg lettuce
1 bunch green onions/scallions, chopped
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
1 small can of water chestnuts, diced to minced, if you prefer
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce – so much better than regular and still works like salt.
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon garlic chile pepper sauce
few dashes of hoisin sauce
few dashes of dark sesame oil

Brown meat and scallions over medium heat.Add garlic, water chestnuts, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ´╗┐vinegar and garlic chile pepper sauce. Warm through. Add sesame oil last, cook 2 minutes, then remove from heat.

While chicken is cooking, prepare Saifun noodles according to package. We fried ours in a bit of oil. It helps if you have someone to assist preparing dinner. When noodles are finished, layer on a plate and cover with chicken mixture.

Carefully pull off lettuce leaves. Spoon chicken mixture onto lettuce, fold and devour.
