Asian-Style Chicken Wraps

Delicious finger food that’s just as healthy as it is fun to eat!!

INGREDIENTS:


For sauce:

  • 1 small Jalapeno chili pepper, rinsed and split lengthwise—remove seeds and white membrane, and mince (about 1 Tbsp); for less spice, use green bell pepper
  • 1 Tbsp garlic, minced (about 2–3 cloves)
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar or honey
  • ½ C water
  • ½ Tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice (or about 2 limes)

For chicken:

  • 1 Tbsp peanut oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp ginger, minced
  • 1 Tbsp garlic, minced (about 2–3 cloves)
  • 12 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into thin strips
  • 1 Tbsp lite soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds (optional)

For wrap:

  • 1 (small) head red leaf lettuce, rinsed, dried, and separated into single leaves large enough to create wrap
  • 8 fresh basil leaves, whole, rinsed and dried
  • 2 C bok choy or Asian cabbage, rinsed and shredded

DIRECTIONS:


  1. To prepare the sauce, add all ingredients to a saucepan, and bring to a boil over high heat. Remove from heat, and let sit in hot saucepan for 3–5 minutes. Chill in refrigerator for about 15 minutes, or until cold.
  2. Prepare the chicken by heating oil in a large wok or sauté pan. Add ginger and garlic, and stir fry briefly until cooked, but not browned, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  3. Add chicken, and continue to stir fry for 5–8 minutes.
  4. Add soy sauce, sesame oil (optional), and sesame seeds (optional), and return to a boil.
  5. Remove from the heat, and cover with lid to hold warm in hot sauté pan.
  6. Assemble each wrap: Place one red lettuce leaf on a plate, then add ½ cup chicken stir-fry, 1 basil leaf, and ¼ cup shredded cabbage and fold together.
  7. Serve two wraps with ¼ cup sauce.
