Asian Lettuce Wraps
Recipe adapted by Our Best Bites
1 lb ground chicken*
1/2 C thinly sliced green onions

4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger


1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and diced 
1/3 C roughly chopped cilantro

1 lemon juiced (about 3-4 Tbs juice)

1 Tbs coconut aminos
4 Tbs honey


1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp pepper


1-2 heads romaine lettuce
*To prepare your own ground chicken, cut boneless skinless chicken breasts into large chunks and pulse in a food processor until ground.
Instructions:

In a medium bowl, combine the ground chicken, green onions, garlic, and ginger. Cover and refrigerate until dinner time or allow to stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.
When ready to cook, heat about 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken mixture until it’s browning and crumbly.
While the chicken is cooking, combine the lemon, coconut aminos, honey, salt and pepper. Set aside.
Place the remaining ingredients in a large bowl. When the chicken is done cooking, add it to the vegetable mixture. Drizzle with the sauce and toss to combine. Serve immediately in leaves of lettuce. Makes 4 servings.
Yield: about 5 C chicken mixture.  Makes 14-16 lettuce wraps.
