Asian Lettuce Wraps

What you need:

1 Head of lettuce
3-4 fresh chicken breast
4-6 white mushrooms diced
3 cloves of fresh garlic grated
1/4 cup red onion or shallots minced
1/4 cup bean sprouts
3 tbls Hoisin sauce divided (save one tbls for the end)
1 tbls sweet cooking wine
1 tbls sweet chili sauce
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup shaved carrots
1 lime


First, dice up all the chicken very small. I find it works easier if the chicken is partially frozen, but be prepared for your hands to go numb. Just make sure you don't cut your fingers off.

In a frying pan combine, chicken, onions, mushrooms, garlic, soy sauce, cooking wine, hoisin sauce, and sweet chili sauce. Saute until chicken is fully cooked. Once chicken is fully cooked add the remaining 1 tbls hoisin sauce and mix fast and remove from heat.

Serve chicken with lettuce, bean sprouts, green onions, shaved carrots and sweet chili sauce.

I usually add some chicken mixture to my lettuce cup with some bean sprouts, green onions and carrots and a little spoon full of chili sauce. I roll the lettuce and devour the wrap! YUMMY!
