Healthy Chicken Lettuce Wraps
In large frying pan, saute 1 pound (2 lbs if you have a large family) of ground chicken breast, 3 chopped green onions, 1 can of diced water chesnuts, a clove of fresh crushed garlic, and some fresh ginger. You may also add chopped zucchini or mushrooms at this point.
Cook until chicken is no longer pink.
Add 3 tbs of soy sauce or coconut aminos, 1 tsp raw honey, and a splash of rice wine vinegar or white vinegar. Saute for 3-5 minutes.
Add 1/4-1/2 cup of Hoisin Sauce to taste (found in the Asian section of your grocery store). Saute for 3-5 more minutes.
Spoon chicken mixture into separated lettuce leaves. Roll and enjoy!
