Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Course Appetizer
Cuisine American
Servings 6 people

Ingredients
  

  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 8 scallions, white and green parts, minced
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2/3 cup water chestnuts, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce or Teriyaki sauce
  • 6 soft lettuce leaves, such as butter or Boston Bib
  • Chopped peanuts, cilantro leaves, and lime wedges for garnish (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Heat the oil in a skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the ground chicken, scallions, and cornstarch and cook, stirring constantly, until the chicken is cooked through, and broken up (but do not brown), about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Add the water chestnuts, soy sauce, ginger, and oyster sauce and cook for 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Cool slightly.
  • If you like spice, add some red pepper flakes or a dash of hot chili oil to the chicken mixture.
  • To serve, generously spoon chicken mixture into the center of each lettuce leaf. Wrap the lettuce around the filling.  Top with cilantro leaves and chopped peanuts, if using, then eat like a taco.
