Indian Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Sometimes I want an easy lunch with a bit of a bite. These lettuce wraps are great because I add a little siracha directly to my portion and the kids get the normal spiced version. Even better, these have my kids reaching for the lettuce and fighting over who gets the largest leaf.
1lb ground chicken
1T olive oil
1 small chopped onion
2 garlic cloves minced
1/2 jar of store bought Tikka Masala Sauce
1/2 t ground ginger
1 T soy sauce
1 can water chestnuts chopped
1 head of romaine lettuce
Heat oil in pan over medium high heat, add meat and brown. After meat is cooked, remove from pan and set aside. In the same pan, add the onion, garlic, ginger, and water chestnuts. Cook for 4 minutes then add the meat. Mix the ingredients together and add the Tikka Masala and soy sauce. Cook several minutes until the mixture thickens. Serve warm on fresh lettuce leaf wraps.
This recipe is fun because you can add toppings as well. We have used peanuts, cole slaw mix, and carrots at various times.
