Chicken Lettuce Wraps Recipe

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Prep Time 15 minutes Cook Time 5 minutes

by Anne Coleman

What you'll need

  • 1 teriyaki-flavored rotisserie chicken
  • 1/4 cup red pepper, diced small
  • 1/4 cup water chestnuts, diced small
  • 1/4 cup bamboo shoots, diced small
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic - minced
  • 8-12 lettuce leaves, depending on size

Helpful Tip:

Tender bamboo shoots can be found canned in the Asian aisle of your grocery store.

Soft, round-leafed lettuce like butter or bib works best, but iceberg will also do.

How to make it

  1. Remove meat only from rotisserie chicken and dice small. This should give you about 2 cups of diced chicken.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken and remaining ingredients.
  3. Cook until heated through - about 5 minutes.
  4. Serve with lettuce leaves for wrapping.
