Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger minced
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground chicken 500 g
  • 1/4 cup tamari or low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 16 butter lettuce leaves or your favorite lettuce
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1/3 cup scallions also called spring onions, white and green parts, chopped

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet over medium-low heat, sauté garlic and ginger with olive oil for about 3 minutes.
  2. Add chicken and break down into small pieces.
  3. While chicken is cooking, prepare the sauce. In a medium bowl, combine tamari, rice vinegar, cornstarch, and honey. When chicken is almost cooked but still a little bit pink, pour sauce into the pan, bring everything to a boil and keep stirring until the chicken is done. Remove from the heat, cool slightly and stir in cilantro.

  4. Spoon chicken mixture on lettuce leaves (about 2-3 tbsp per leaf), sprinkle with sesame seeds and top with scallions.

Recipe Notes

These wraps can be eaten cold or warm (my favorite is cold!). If you want to eat them cold, assemble the wraps at the last minute, when the chicken mixture has cooled down.
