About the Recipe

I love lettuce wraps but usually end up wearing more than I get to eat. I decided to deconstruct the recipe so I could enjoy every last bite without looking like an animal. I often throw in a side of naan or flat bread to sop up the sauce. I know I'm mixing my cultures, but they taste great together!

  • 16 oz. Ground Chicken

  • 8 oz. water chesnuts, chopped
