Chicken Lettuce Wraps

A couple years ago Kara, my Mom and I hosted a recipe party. We each made a dish and printed the corresponding recipes for guests who tried it and liked it. We asked that everyone else do the same. Around 25 ladies came, each with a delicious dish. It was basically a food fest for all. Good times! Anyways, Kara made these Chicken Lettuce Wraps and they were a hit!

At first sight this recipe may seem difficult because of the long list of ingredients. But it comes together quickly and once you buy the odd ball ingredients you’ll have them for future batches of lettuce wraps or other asian dishes. I’ve found that sesame oil, soy sauce and rice vinegar are ingredients I use a lot in other asian recipes.

I liked this recipe because they taste really good, they’re flavorful and they’re healthy. No bread, no pasta…no carbs. On second thought I’m surprised I like them!

Here's what you'll need

In a small bowl combine the ingredients for the stir fry sauce

In another bowl combine all the ingredients for the dipping sauce, set aside for later

Saute the chicken, mushrooms, water chestnuts, garlic and green onion

Add in the stir fry sauce

Serve on Bibb Lettuce with dipping sauce. It makes a great presentation

They taste great too!

    Unfortunately your comment about “No bread, no pasta…no carbs” is quite inaccurate since there are a lot of carbs in all the sugar in this recipe! Still sounds really yummy, though.

    I found your blog through Pinterest, and I pinned this recipe a few weeks back. I just made this last night, and, WOW – this was excellent! Thank you so much for sharing. I used 2 cans of water chestnuts (love the crunch), 8 oz. of mushrooms, a full bundle of green onions, and 3 chicken breasts. It was dinner and 2 lunches worth for my husband and I! I also made it a little healthier by baking the chicken first in the oven (375 for about 25 minutes) – I basted it first with a little mixture of soy sauce and sesame oil. Thought it would be a touch healthier than sauteeing it in oil first. This is hands down one of my favorite recipes. Love your blog, & love this recipe. THANKS!
