Description

This is a great light summer meal that your family will love. Use the sauce to marinate chicken for the grill, it is delicious! These would also be great made with shrimp.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • ½ cups Soy Sauce
  • ¼ cups Brown Sugar
  • ¼ cups Honey
  • ½ cups Red Wine Vinegar
  • ½ teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Onion Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Ginger
  • 2-½ Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 1 pound Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, Diced Into Bite Size Pieces
  • ½ teaspoons Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
  • ½ cups Onion, Diced
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic, Minced
  • ½ teaspoons Dried Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • ½ whole Lime Juiced, (about 1 1 /2 Tablespoons)
  • 1 whole Red Bell Pepper, Diced
  • 4 sprigs Green Onions, Sliced
  • ½ cups Dry Roasted Peanuts Or Cashews
  • 8 whole Lettuce Leaves
  • FOR GARNISH:
  • Cilantro

Preparation

In a medium saucepan, mix all the glaze ingredients together, except the cornstarch, and bring to a slow boil. Take 1/3 cup of sauce and put in a small bowl. Mix with the cornstarch and whisk together. Add back into the sauce and simmer until it thickens to desired consistency, about 5 minutes. If it gets too thick, you can thin with a little water. Set aside.

Season the diced chicken with pepper. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat and add the sesame oil. Saute the onion and garlic for a few minutes until beginning to soften. Add the chicken and continue cooking until chicken is cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Stir in the red pepper flakes, if using; cook another minute. Pour the glaze into the skillet with the chicken. Add the lime juice, red bell pepper, green onions, peanuts (or cashews).

Spoon about 1/2 cup of the mixture into a lettuce leaf and garnish with fresh cilantro.

Note: Don’t let the red pepper flakes scare you. Start with half the amount if you are not sure. We love the little “bite” that it gave the dish.

Serving size: 2 lettuce wraps per person.

Enjoy!
