(Healthy) Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients

6 cloves garlic, chopped
1 bunch scallions, chopped
FOR VEGGIES
1 package purple cabbage
fresh basil
Hoison
Sriracha
OTHER
Boston lettuce leaves; washed and patted dry – be sure not to rip them

Preparation

1
Procedure – for chicken and veggies
2
Marinate the chicken, scallions and garlic in Hoison and soy (I often do this a day in advance, but if you don’t have that much time, up to an hour before is fine)
3
Marinate carrots, cabbage, water chestnuts, ½ the basil and pepper in Hoison and soy
4
Sauté chicken mixture until chicken is cooked through; drain any excess liquid
5
Add veggie mixture to chicken and sauté; do not overcook veggies – warm them, but keep them crunchy
6
Add remaining basil (goal here is for uncooked basil to add bright green color to dish)
7
Arrange lettuce leaves around a serving platter; serve with a bowl of chicken and veggies in the center; serve with sauce on the side and crushed peanuts
8
Procedure – for sauce
9
Combine Hoison, soy and srirach to create a thick sauce; add soy and sriracha to your liking

About

Note - The hoison and peanuts add the most calories to the dish, so use in moderation as a topping.
