Lettuce raps (and other talents)

  • pan spray
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Sambal, or more, to taste
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced 
  • 1/2 carrot, thinly sliced into matchsticks 
  • 1 head butter lettuce
  • Heat pan over medium high heat. Spray with non-stick pan spray. Add ground chicken and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the chicken as it cooks; drain excess fat.
  • Stir in garlic, onion, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger and Sambal until onions have become translucent, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in bell pepper and carrots to warm.
  • To serve, spoon the chicken mixture into the center of a lettuce leaf. Eat!
