Recipe – Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Sautéed ground chicken thighs, shiitake mushrooms and water chestnuts seasoned with Asian spices are served in a crispy cold lettuce leaf with a spicy hoisin dipping sauce. I can’t think of a more playful appetizer to celebrate the Year of The Dragon!

Oh and one more thing I want to mention, if you want to turn this into a main dish, make some steamed rice and serve each wrap with rice and chicken, it’s very good! Enjoy!!
