Bourbon Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I took the recipe for the sauce from a friend of mine's website and modified it slightly. Here is the link to her site. Busy Mom's Cookbook. Thanks Katie!

  • 1lb ground chicken
  • 1/2C minute rice
  • Head of iceberg lettuce
  • 2T EVOO (or veg. oil)
  • 1 garlic cloved - crushed (I used 1tsp of minced garlic in olive oil)
  • 1/2tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/3C brown sugar
  • 2T Chili Sauce (can use ketchup)
  • 1T Cider Vinegar
  • 1/2C apple juice
  • 1/2C soy sauce
  • 1C water
-Cook ground chicken in EVOO.
-While the chicken is cooking mix all the ingredients except the rice.
-Once chicken is fully cooked (should not take long and does not need to be drained) pour in the sauce you made. Bring to a boil.
- Add rice and turn down heat to a simmer. Cover and simmer 10-15 minutes. Until rice is cooked and remaining liquid is boiled off.
- while the rice is cooking peel off large pieces of lettuce to use as "wraps". Rinse in cool water and pat dry between paper towels.
