Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, diced into small 1/2
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Soy Sauce (we prefer low sodium)
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh ginger, grated or finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. chile paste or Sriracha
  • 1 tsp. peanut butter
  • 1 tsp. rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. agave
  • Bibb Lettuce, washed and pulled apart for wraps
  • Serve with:
  • Hoisin Sauce
  • chopped peanuts
  • rice noodles
  • thinly sliced carrots
  • thinly sliced radishes
  • sliced scallions
  • More Sriracha

Let's go:

  1. Chop and prepare all ingredients.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, grated fresh ginger, chile paste, rice wine vinegar, agave, and peanut butter.
  3. In a medium skillet, heat 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil. Add in the diced onions, stirring and allowing to become translucent, for about 5 minutes. Add in the peppers
  4. Add in the ground chicken.
  5. Allow to cook, stirring occasionally, so the chicken begins to brown and break up easily. Cook for about 7 minutes.
  6.  Add in the soy sauce mixture, stirring to coat the chicken and vegetables.
  7. Allow to simmer for 5 – 7 minutes, until liquid begins to absorb and caramelize.
  8. Take off the heat and prepare the toppings.
  9. Place chicken on platter with the lettuce wraps, hoisin sauce, and other toppings. Serve with rice noodles if you’d prefer to make this a heartier dish.
