Ingredients:

  1. 1 pound of ground chicken breast or finely diced/minced chicken breast, chosen for its lean and tender texture.
  2. 1/2 red onion, minced to add a subtle sweetness and depth of flavor to the filling.
  3. 2 cloves of garlic, minced, for a fragrant and aromatic touch.
  4. 2 teaspoons of fresh ginger, grated, adding a zesty and invigorating flavor to the filling.
  5. 1 teaspoon of chili pepper flakes, for a hint of heat and spice.
  6. 1 teaspoon of salt, enhancing the overall flavor profile of the filling.
  7. 1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper, adding a subtle kick.
  8. 1 cup of carrots, julienned, providing a crisp and colorful addition to the filling.
  9. 1 small can of diced water chestnuts, for a delightful crunch and texture.
  10. 1/4 cup of green onions, chopped, adding a fresh and vibrant flavor.
  11. 2 tablespoons of cilantro, chopped, for a burst of herbaceous goodness.
  12. 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds, for a nutty and aromatic garnish.
  13. 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, providing a savory and umami-rich flavor.
  14. 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, for a rich and indulgent touch.
  15. 2 teaspoons of lime juice, adding a refreshing citrusy note.
  16. 1 tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter (optional), for a creamy and nutty addition.

Steps:

  1. Begin by preparing your butter lettuce leaves. Separate and wash them thoroughly, then set them aside on a plate to be used as the wraps for your filling.
  2. In a small bowl, prepare the sauce by combining the soy sauce, sesame oil, lime juice, and optional crunchy peanut butter. Stir until well combined, then set the sauce aside for later use.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the ground chicken, minced red onion, minced garlic, grated ginger, chili pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper. Mix everything together until well incorporated.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken mixture to the skillet and cook, stirring continually, for about 6 to 8 minutes, or until the chicken is mostly browned and cooked through.
  5. Add the julienned carrots, chopped green onions, chopped cilantro, diced water chestnuts, and sesame seeds to the skillet with the cooked chicken. Pour in the prepared sauce as well.
  6. Continue to stir-fry the mixture for an additional 3 to 4 minutes, ensuring that everything is well combined and the sauce begins to reduce slightly.
  7. Remove the filling from the heat and set it aside.
  8. To assemble the wraps, spoon a generous portion of the chicken filling onto each lettuce leaf.
  9. Serve the wraps with any remaining sauce on the side for dipping.
