Cherry Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Cherry Chicken Lettuce Wraps
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root (I skip, but add a bit of ground ginger if you like)
  • 2-3 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped (I cook mine in the crockpot with a little teriyaki sauce)
  • 2/3 c. chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
  • 2 t. honey or 1 T brown sugar
  • 1/3 c. craisins
  • 3/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/3 cup toasted and sliced almonds (optional)
  • 12 leaves of lettuce (I used red leaf because it's healthier, but iceberg is crisp and rolls up better)
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together remaining 1 tablespoon oil, vinegar, teriyaki sauce and honey until mixed together. Add chicken mixture, craisins, mushrooms, carrot, green onion and almonds; toss together.
  2. To Serve: Spoon 1/12 of the chicken/cherry mixture onto the center of each lettuce leaf; roll up leaf around filling and serve.
These are fun to eat and tasty. A light meal. You might want to supplement it with a fruit salad or some rice. These are supposed to resemble PF Chang's lettuce wraps. You can make your own dipping sauce using teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, and garlic powder.

There is no way you were eating that with your hands! your lettuce wasn't even bent! sounds tasty though--minus the lettuce part of course.
