Peanut Chicken Lettuce Wraps

  • 1 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbs. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 lb. ground chicken or turkey
  • 8oz. cremini mushrooms, diced
  • 1 C shredded carrots,
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbs. freshly grated ginger
  • 1/4 C hoisin sauce
  • 2 tsp. chili garlic sauce
  • 1 tsp. fish sauce
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 head butter lettuce

  • 3 Tbs. creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Tbs. reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs. freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. chili garlic sauce, or more, to taste
  • 1 tsp. freshly grated ginger

To make the peanut sauce, whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, chili garlic sauce and ginger in a small bowl. Whisk in 2-3 tablespoons water until desired consistency is reached; set aside.

Heat vegetable oil and sesame oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add ground chicken, mushrooms, carrot and shallot. Cook until browned, about 5-7 minutes, making sure to crumble the chicken as it cooks; drain excess fat.

Stir in garlic and ginger until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Stir in hoisin sauce, chili garlic sauce and fish sauce until heated through, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat; stir in cilantro.

To serve, spoon several tablespoons of the chicken mixture into the center of a lettuce leaf, taco-style, drizzled with peanut sauce.
