Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Peanut-Miso Sauce

Randy Mayor; Mary Catherine Muir
Yield 6 servings (serving size: 2 wraps and 2 tablespoons sauce)
These are similar to summer rolls, but we used lettuce leaves in place of rice paper wrappers.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons yellow miso (soybean paste)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 12 romaine lettuce leaves
  • 2 cups (2-inch) julienne-cut carrot
  • 2 cups (2-inch) julienne-cut peeled jicama

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl; stir well with a whisk. Set aside.

  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 4 minutes on each side or until done. Cut the chicken into 1/8-inch-thick slices.

  3. Cut off the raised portion of the main vein of each lettuce leaf. Divide chicken evenly among lettuce leaves; top with carrot, jicama, cucumber, bean sprouts, and cabbage, dividing evenly. Roll up, and secure with a pick. Serve with sauce.
