I wanted to make something lite and healthy for dinner tonight. I decided to make these lettuce wraps. They came out pretty good. Lots of veggies and protein. Serves 4.
1/3 cup sweet & sour sauce
2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. peanut oil
2 green onions, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 celery rib, chopped
1/2 cup red bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts, chopped
2 chicken breasts, cut up in small cubes
1 head of lettuce
2 hours before dinner cut up raw chicken into cubes. Place chicken in a zip lock bag. Add 1/3 cup sweet & sour sauce, 2 Tbsp. soy sauce and 2 Tbsp. rice vinegar to the chicken. Seal bag, mix all the ingredients around. Place chicken marinade in fridge.
When you're ready to make dinner heat a large skillet on your stove top. Add 1 Tbsp. of peanut oil to the skillet. Add chicken and marinade to the hot skillet. Let the chicken and marinade cook for 6 mins. Push all the chicken to one side. In the clear opening on your skillet add all the chopped veggies. After 2 mins stir the veggies and chicken all together. Add 1 more Tbsp. of soy sauce and stir. Heat together for 2 more mins. on the stove top. Make sure your chicken is cooked all the way. Turn the heat off and let the chicken mixture cool for 3-5 mins.
Place chicken in individual lettuce leaves, top with chopped peanuts (if you don't have peanuts you can use chow mien noodles) and roll up. Enjoy!
