How to Make Lettuce Wraps:

The ingredients list might look a little bit long and intimidating, but I assure you, a majority of the ingredients are simple sauces and seasonings! The steps are even more simple, and as I mentioned before, takes a grand total of 20 minutes from start to finish.

MY OTHER RECIPES
  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet and cook the onion. Add the mushrooms and cook for another 3 minutes, then the garlic and cook until fragrant.
  2. Add ground chicken and cook until browned, then drain any excess fat.
  3. Season with the pepper, ginger, and all the sauces. Stir until combined, then add the chestnuts and green onions, cooking for another 3-4 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  4. Spoon 3-4 tablespoons of the mixture into the center of a lettuce leaf. Roll into a little wrap, and ENJOY!

If you like, you can serve with shredded carrots, crispy rice noodles, or chopped toasted nuts.
