Easy Lettuce Wraps

5:26 AM

I have only ever tried one recipe for lettuce wraps. It is so delicious that I've never even been tempted to branch out and try a new one. I'm guessing if you make this for dinner tonight, you'll never want to try another recipe for lettuce wraps either. It has the perfect caramelized crunch and is surprisingly fresh and satisfying. 


Ingredients:
4 chicken breasts, diced
2 heads of bib lettuce
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 onions, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons soy suace
1/2 cup cashews, chopped
6 basil leaves, julienned
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup asian crunchy noodles
hot sauce (optional)

Ingredients for sauce:
4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Directions:
Heat your oil in a pan over medium high heat. Add your chicken and cook until golden on all sides (about 5-6 minutes). Remove your chicken from the oil, and set aside. To your oiled pan add your onions and soy sauce. When your onions are brown and tender, add your garlic and cook for an additional minute. In a seperate bowl mix together all of your sauce ingredients and stir until the brown sugar is dissolved. Add the sauce and chicken back to your onions in the pan. Saute everything together until fragrant and warm. Fill your lettuce leaves with the chicken mixture and top with asian crunchy noodles, hot sauce, and fresh basil.



Super simple, super delicious. Just the kind of recipe we love around here. Hope you enjoy it!
