My own version. And no it doesn’t taste like PF Changs. No one can touch that. They turned out pretty good and I have to say I patted myself on the back and ate 3 servings of this stuff.
A friend of mine told me he was going to eat at Ichiban tonight so that inspired me to make this. My dad sends me all of these recipes and I periodically go through them and widdle out the ones I’m not interested in. That coupled with the fact that I haven’t blogged in a while led me to Chicken Lettuce Wraps. Plus, I’m really bored and am partaking in a Lord of the Rings marathon. Right now, we’re to the part where Aragon is trying to find another way for the women and children to go deeper into Helm’s Deep.
I did use the basis of this recipe from allrecipes.com but I didn’t have several of the ingredients so this one is mostly all me.
Chicken Lettuce Wraps
- 1 lb chicken breast, cubed small
- 1 large onion, diced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil (I used hot chile olive oil for more flavor)
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 cup lightly salted peanuts, roughly chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 pinch ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1/2 tablespoon chives
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat and cook chicken thoroughly. Once cooked, set aside in a bowl. Using the same pan, saute onions until tender; add soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger and red pepper to onions and stir. Add cooked chicken, sesame oil, peanuts and chives and stir once more. Serve with lettuce wraps.
