Ingredients:
1 Tablespoon(s) Vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon(s) Plus 1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 Teaspoon(s) Chopped fresh ginger
1 Teaspoon(s) Minced garlic
1 Pound(s) Boneless chicken, diced with
1/2 Cup(s) Finely chopped onion
1/2 Cup(s) DICED WATER CHESTNUTS
1/4 Cup(s) Grated carrot
1/2 Cup(s) Diced ham
1 Tablespoon(s) Soy sauce
1 Tablespoon(s) Hoisin sauce
1/4 Cup(s) Chicken broth mixed
2 Teaspoon(s) Cornstarch
*12 whole iceberg or bibb
lettuce leaves washed &
dried
Directions:
Heat vegetable oil & 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil over high heat in
a wok or large skillet, add ginger & garlic, and stirfry for a few
seconds. Add chicken & stirfry until the chicken turns white on all
sides. Remove from pan, and add onion, water chestnuts, carrot, and
ham. Stirfry for 2 minutes, then return chicken to the pan, tossing
the mixture. Add soy and Hoisin sauces, stirring until combined with
the stirfry mixture. Pour the broth mixture over the stirfry & stir
until thickened. Sprinkle with remaining sesame oil & remove to a
serving platter. Place 1 to 2 tablespoons of chicken in the center of
each lettuce leaf. Tuck in the bottom and sides, gently rolling each
package to encase the filling. Serves 2 per person makes a total of 6
*Fresh veggie wrappers become more pliable for wrapping when left at
room temperature for 30 minutes. Converted by MC_Buster. NOTES : This
quick chicken dish is flavored with Hoisin sauce and wrapped in
lettuce leaves, for a lowfat entree. The chicken can be prepared a day
ahead, and stirfried right before serving. Wash the lettuce leaves the
day before, dry well, and store in the refrigerator. Cool lettuce is a
perfect compliment to the spicy chicken. If you don't have lettuce,
roll this mixture in flour tortillas, or serve it unwrapped over white
rice. Converted by MM_Buster v2.0l.
