Chicken Lettuce Wraps(click here to print recipe)
1 T. vegetable oil
1 1/2 lbs. ground chicken breast (you can substitute turkey, if you desire)
1/2 small red bell pepper, minced
3-4 green onions, chopped finely (make sure to use the green tops for color)
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 T. lite soy sauce (I like Kikkoman brand)
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. grated, fresh ginger root
2 T. brown sugar
Heat the oil in a nonstick frying pan over medium high heat. Add the ground chicken and stir to break up the lumps and until the chicken loses its pink color, about 10 minutes.
Add the bell pepper, onions, and garlic cloves and stir until they are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
Reduce the heat to medium and add the sauce ingredients. Cook for an additional five minutes or so, or until the mixture is hot and fragrant.
Serve with butter lettuce leaves and bottled hoisin sauce (if desired).
I put the components of this meal on the table and let everyone wrap and roll their own! As my daughter said, these are messy but fun to eat!
