Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I told you I was in need of something healthy after a 3 week vacation! I made these lettuce wraps for dinner last night and it was just the ticket. They are filling enough for a meal, but light enough that you don't feel like you need to go run a mile after. My husband (who doesn't ever constitute a salad as a meal) even requests this meal every once in a while. Its also another one of those meals that doesn't require an oven in this horrid Texas heat- so it's a winner in my book!

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

4 chicken breasts (cut into very small pieces) or 2 lbs *ground chicken
1 1/2 cups bean sprouts
2 cups cole slaw mix
1 cup cilantro, chopped
5 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon garlic (minced)
2-3 tablespoons ginger (minced - to your taste)
4-5 green onions (chopped)
salt and pepper to taste

Dipping Sauce:
4 Tablespoons soy sauce
4 Tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
3 teaspoons honey
2 Tablespoons water
ginger to your taste

Cook chicken in a large skillet with garlic and ginger. Add all other ingredients and cook until vegetables have softened a bit - but don't let them get too soggy. Remove from heat and put filling in large sliced of lettuce. Dip in sauce, or drizzle it on top.

Tomorrow's healthy meal "Garlic Lime Chicken with Mango Salsa" YUM! See you tomorrow :)

*Ground chicken has the similar consistency to ground beef- which frankly I think tastes like rubber 90 percent of the time, so I chose to go with small diced chicken instead! Do whatever you like!
