These are yummy, easy, and a cheap meal. I’ve never cooked with ground chicken before, but it’s a nice change from ground beef.  I usually add some peas in the meat mixture for some green, but you don’t have to.

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

2 heads of Boston Lettuce (it’s more rubbery than iceburg lettuce and works better for a wrap/taco shell)

1 lb of ground chicken

1/3 cup of scallions (or yellow onion)

1 t of minced garlic

1 T of ginger

1 T sesame oil

1/4 cup of silvered almonds

3 T soy sauce (or Tamari)

1 T of white rice vinegar

1 t of Dijon mustard

1 T Sriracha sauce (red hot sauce in the asian aisle)

1 T honey

1/4 t of salt

In a skillet heat sesame oil on med to high heat.  Add ground chicken and cook until almost done.  Drain off the excess moisture.

Add onions, ginger, and soy sauce.  Cook until onions are translucent.  Stir in garlic, almonds, vinegar, mustrad, Sriracha, honey, and salt.  Cook for another 5 minutes.

Serve with lettuce leaves as wraps.  Add peas to the meal if you want.  Enjoy!
