Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps


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 Asian fish sauce
6 soft lettuce leaves, such as butter or Boston Bib
Chopped peanuts, cilantro leaves, and lime wedges for garnish (optional)


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 or fish sauce and cook for 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Cool slightly.

If you like heat, 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.  Serve with lime wedges and garnish with cilantro leaves and chopped peanuts, if desired. Makes 6 servings.

    Would love to know nutritional content on your recipes so they can be converted to WW points. Is there a chance to see that in the upcoming year? Love all the recipes you post.

  • If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
