Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps:

  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 2 tablespoons ginger, minced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage and carrot mix
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup plum sauce
  • 1 cup basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • Iceberg lettuce leaves separated


Heat a large skillet. Add oil, then chicken and cook for about 2 minutes. Then add ginger, garlic, peppers, cabbage/carrot mix and green onions. Stir fry for another 2-3 minutes. Add plum sauce and mix well. Then add basil leaves and fish sauce. Toss for 1 more minute.

Place spoonfuls of chicken into a piece of lettuce and fold over like a taco and enjoy.
