Lettuce Wraps

10 Apr

Back on my food experimenting spree. It’s giving me something to do to fill my free time and helps me add some healthy variety to my diet.

You need:
6 lettuce leaves washed and dried
1 TB sesame oil
2tsp ginger
1 tsp minced garlic
1 red pepper sliced
1 can water chestnuts, drained and sliced
1.5 cups broccoli slaw
1/2 cup orange slices chopped
2TB slivered almonds

3 TB low sodium soy sauce
1 TB rice wine vinegar
1 packet stevia
1/4 tsp black pepper

1/2 pound cooked and chopped chicken

Mix all the sauce ingredients and set aside
Heat the sesame oil in a skillet. Add ginger, garlic, red pepper, water chestnuts, and broccoli slaw. Cook for about 5 minutes or until veggies are slightly tender.
Add sauce mixture and chicken and cook about 10 minutes.
Turn off flame and add chopped oranges and almonds
Spoon the mixture evenly onto the lettuce wraps

Again. Another hit. I love what the oranges add to it. It’s perfect. I had my coworker taste it to confirm and she Said “it’s REALLY good!”
