These homemade lettuce wraps tend to be a favorite. They are also a healthy alternative to most lettuce wraps. Unlike most wraps that tend to be high in calories and fat due to the excess oil and fatty beef - these wraps are leaner, healthier, and taste great!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast (about 1 pound), cut into 1/2-inch pieces (or substitute chicken for 12 oz extra-lean ground beef)
  • 1 - 8 ounce can sliced water chestnuts, rinsed and chopped
  • ¾ cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup purchased Hoisin sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup diced carrots
  • 12 large leaf lettuce leaves
