I'm posting this one for Dawn, who obviously got it from her sister Keri. No matter where it came from, you should try it...it's delicious!

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wrap

1st make the pouring sauce:

1/2 cup warm water
1/4 sugar
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Ketchup
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
2 Tbsp Rice Vinegar - or you can use Red Wine Vinegar
1/8 Tsp Sesame Oil

1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
1 Tsp Hot water
2 Tbsp Minced Garlic

In a bowl let the 1/2 cup water dissolve the sugar. Mix in the soy sauce, ketchup, lemon juice, vinegar and sesame oil. Keep in fridge. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl mix the mustard, water and garlic. This you will add to you sauce when you are ready to serve - add to taste.

1 Lb Ground Chicken
Chopped Onion to taste
2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
1 Tbsp Soy Sauce - I used Lite
1/4 cup hoisin sauce - I couldn't find this and used a bottled stir fry sauce
2 Tsp Ground Ginger - I found this in my produce section with the minced garlice
1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar - I used Red Wine Vinegar
2 Tsp Asian Chili Pepper Sauce - I found this is my "asian" food aisle
1 Can - 8oz Water Chestnute - Choppe
1 bunch green onions - chopped - I chopped them together with the green onion
2 Tsp Sesame Oil

Brown Chicken in a large skillet over medium heat, breaking it up as it cooks. When it's about half way done, add onion, garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, vinegar, and chili sauce. Cook until meat is crumbled and brown. Add the chestnuts and green onion ( I mixed these together and chopped them really good and then added). Cook about 2 minutes, then add the Sesame Oil and mix well.

Serve with Iceburg lettuce cups and I also added some canned Rice Noodles as we made our wraps. Yum! Use sauce to taste and ENJOY!

Go ahead...play with your food!

Guys....the depth of flavors in this dish...layer after layer are hard to believe for a simple little appetizer. I highly recommend this dish , and the rice noodles were a lovely touch...gave it just enough of a crunch.

I'm head over heels for this one! Clap
Go ahead...play with your food!
