BBQ Chinese Lettuce Wraps

Share it Please
This recipe is so easy to make, very affordable, and it tastes great.  If you are a vegetarian, just substitute the chicken for some tofu.  It would work great in this dish by Rachael Ray.


2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 1/2 pounds thin-cut chicken breasts, chopped
2 tablespoons vegetable oil 
Coarse salt and coarse black pepper
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 1-inch piece of ginger root, finely chopped or grated 
Zest of 1 orange
1 red bell pepper, diced small
2 cups bean sprouts
1/2 cup chives, chopped
4 tablespoons hoisin sauce (Chinese barbecue sauce)
1/2 large head iceberg lettuce, core removed, head quartered

First, chop the head of lettuce into quarters and separate pieces.

Pre-heat a large skillet or wok to high.

Add the oil to the hot pan. Add the chicken to the pan and sear the meat by stir frying for a minute or two. Add the mushrooms and cook for another minute or two. Add the salt and pepper to season, then add the garlic and ginger. Cook for a minute more. Zest the orange into the pan, then add the bell pepper bits.
  Next, add the chives and bean sprouts. Cook for another minute, continuing to stir fry the mixture. Add the hoisin sauce and toss to coat the mixture evenly.

Once everything is mixed nicely, remove from heat.  Serve BBQ chicken mixture on top of lettuce.

Yay for healthy cooking!
