Ingredients


2 tbsp Tamari, gluten free, reduced sodium
2 tsp Honey
2 tsp Sesame oil
1 whole lime(s) Lime juice (fresh)
1 tbsp Coconut oil (or butter)
4 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1 piece, 2-inch Ginger root (grated or minced)
3 stalk(s) Green onion, scallion, ramp (chopped)
454 gm Chicken, ground, lean
1/2 tsp Hot pepper (chili) flakes (optional)
1 medium head Iceberg lettuce (or boston lettuce; for topping)
1 cup Bean sprouts (for topping)
2 medium Carrots (julienned; for topping)
1/4 medium head Red cabbage (julienned; for topping)
1 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (julienned; for topping)
1/2 cup Cilantro (coriander) (a handful; for garnish)
1 fruit Lime (quartered; for garnish)

Instructions


  1. In a bowl, stir together tamari, honey, sesame oil and lime juice. Set aside.
  2. In a pan, heat coconut oil on a medium heat and add the garlic, ginger, and green onion.
  3. Cook gently, stirring occasionally for about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the ground chicken to the pan and cook until chicken is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the marinade mixture to the pan and allow to cook for another 1-2 minutes until well combined. (For a crispier texture, allow the chicken to cook an additional 3-4 minutes until slightly brown but not burnt.)
  6. Once the chicken is cooked, remove the pan from the heat and set aside to serve.
  7. To serve, spoon about 1/4 cup of the mixture into a large lettuce leaf and serve with the toppings of your choice. (You can keep the vegetables toppings raw for extra crunch, or gently stir-fry them in a little oil and add them cooked if you prefer.) Serve warm and enjoy!
