Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 pound ground chicken or turkey
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced jalapeno (optional)
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 3/4 cup sliced carrots
  • 1/2 cup sliced or diced water chestnuts
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup low sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 1-2 tablespoons sriracha sauce (depending on how spicy you want it)
  • 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 bunch green or red leaf lettuce

Instructions

  • Heat a large saute pan that has a lid over medium heat. Add the oil, ground chicken, onion and garlic and cook until the onions become translucent and the meat is beginning to brown. This will take about 5 minutes.
    Add the red pepper, carrots and water chestnuts and cook for another 3 minutes.
    Stir in the chicken stock, tamari, hoisin sauce, siriacha, peanut butter, and sesame oil until well combined with the other ingredients. Cover and cook for about 10 minutes until the sauce begins to reduce.
    Remove the lid and turn off the heat. Add the peanuts, cilantro and green onions.
    While the filling is cooling, remove the end of the lettuce and pull apart the individual leaves. Set aside.
    Let sit for 10 minutes before scooping into lettuce leaves for serving.
    Add additional peanuts, green onions and chopped cilantro if desired for serving.
