Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

This seven-ingredient Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps build immense flavor in about five minutes of prep time. Quick-cooking bean threads, also called cellophane or glass noodles, can substitute for any kind of Asian noodle, especially in Chinese and Korean recipes, and are available at most large supermarkets.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 wraps and 2 lime wedges)

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce (such as Sriracha)
  • 1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 2 none garlic cloves, minced
  • none Dash of sea salt
  • 4 none (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • none Cooking spray
  • 8 none Boston lettuce leaves (about 1 head)
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves (about 10 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts (about 2 ounces)
  • 1 none lime, cut into 8 wedges
  • none Chopped peanuts (optional)

Preparation

Combine first 9 ingredients in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Reserve 2 tablespoons oil mixture. Place remaining oil mixture in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken breast halves; seal and marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour, turning occasionally. Remove chicken from bag, and discard marinade.

Heat a large nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken to pan; grill 12 minutes or until chicken is done, turning once. Let stand 5 minutes before thinly slicing. Divide chicken evenly among lettuce leaves; top each lettuce leaf with 2 tablespoons mint, 1 tablespoon sprouts, and about 1 teaspoon reserved oil mixture. Serve with lime wedges. Garnish with chopped peanuts, if desired.
