Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

One of the things I miss most since moving out to the country are my favorite Chinese and Thai take-out restaurants. Finding an Asian restaurant in this part of rural Georgia has proved challenging. To hold me over until our next trip into the city, I have begun making some of my favorite dishes at home like these Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps. I have even made my own homemade fortune cookies which are surprisingly simple to make.

I love this recipe for it’s simplicity. I typically uses ground chicken in this recipe, but you could easily substitute some diced chicken breast. Just use whatever you have on hand. As a healthier alternative to white rice, I prefer to use brown rice. If you are a low carb diet, like I happen to be at the moment, just omit the rice completely.
