Asian Chicken Wrap

I'm on a roll here people!!!  For a few weeks now I've been in a bloggy/cooking rut!

Sometimes the more tired you feel the less productive you are and then the worse you feel.  I'm giving our fridge and our plates a little DETOX and you're going to love what I have in store for you!

I started with a Soy Free Pineapple Kale Smoothie recipe.

Asian Chicken Wraps
from SELF

  • 2 tsp OLIVE or COCONUT oil  *NEVER use canola oil*
  • 8 oz white mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 lb lean ground chicken
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 cup green onions, sliced
  • 1 (8 oz) can sliced water chestnuts, drained and chopped
  •  **Or supplement with a FRESH option**
  • 8 large lettuce leaves
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 3/4 tsp lower-sodium soy sauce  *Preferably Non-GMO*
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • crushed red pepper flakes, to taste

 When I make these tonight I'll use a darker leafy green (romaine or Kale)

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Place mushrooms in a large bowl, set aside.
Add chicken, garlic and ginger to skillet and cook for 6-7 minutes or until chicken is brown, breaking the meat up as it cooks. Combine the chicken mixture with the bowl of mushrooms; add green onions and water chestnuts; toss together. Combine sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, lower-sodium soy sauce, honey and crushed red pepper flakes in a small bowl; whisk to mix well. Divide chicken mixture evenly between each lettuce leaf and top with sesame oil mixture. Optional: Garnish with fun, bright extras, like the red peppers and scallions seen above.

  3. Hi Mary, Sounds like a great recipe, I definitely agree with not using Canola oil - I wouldn't touch the stuff even it it is organic. Have a wonderful healthy day!

  4. Hi Mary, this sounds delicious and easy. Thank you for sharing this at the HomeAcre Hop; I hope you'll join us again this Thursday.
