“This is my version of the popular dish with a bit of Thai mixed in and using mostly ingredients that I have around the house. There are lots of things you could add to this... for example celery and red pepper”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preparation:.
  2. Wash the lettuce, dry, and separate the leaves. Set aside.
  3. Cut chicken into small pieces, less than 1/4 inch square.
  4. Mix together the sauce ingredients. I puree them together with a hand blender.
  5. Heat 2 tbsp of sesame oil in a non-stick frying pan on high heat. Add the chicken. When the chicken is about half way done I mix in the sauce. Only add enough to sauce to thoroughly coat the chicken and a little bit more. You don't want the chicken "swimming" in the sauce. Cook until the chicken is cooked through.
  6. In a separate bowl combine water chestnuts, green onions, carrots. Add warm chicken, mix together and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  7. Lay out a lettuce leaf and spoon a heaping teaspoon of the chicken and vegetable/sauce mixture into the middle. The lettuce wraps are designed to be eaten "taco-style," with the lettuce/chicken mixture folded into a package. Continue with the remainder of the chicken and lettuce leaves. Serve.
