Lettuce Wraps

P.F. Changs really holds a special place in my heart. Ever since the move to Daytona Beach that special place as been empty...empty I tell you! (yeah, no P.F. Changs, they don't know what they are missing).This emptiness needs to be must be filled. So to fill the void I made my own chicken lettuce wraps, similar to the Asian lettuce wraps I've made before, but just way better. If you are skeptical about lettuce wraps that's because you have never had them before, and let me tell you, you need to try it! You may wonder the same thing Bradley did, "who ever thought of lettuce wraps?" And the answer, my dear blog reader, must be P.F. Changs. I believe they have thought of everything delicious and good.

Yes, I'm obsessed. You know that, you have read (possibly read, maybe just skimmed) multiple blog posts on my love for their chocolate cake...dun dun dun (dramatic sound affect)..The GREAT Wall of Chocolate! But since I've already blogged about it I'll spare you and continue on with my Minced Chicken Lettuce Wraps.
Moral of the story is, lettuce wraps are delicious. P.F. Changs is delicious. My lettuce wraps, although not P.F. Changs Lettuce wraps, are still delicious. Therefore, go and try them.

Minced Chicken Lettuce Wraps

1 T vegetable oil
3 T shopped red onion
1/2 T minced garlic
2 T grated ginger root
1 lb of minced chicken
4 T soy sauce
2 T of Chili Garlic Sauce, or a little less if you don't like spicy
1 cup fresh chopped cilantro
-4 green onions
1 head of iceberg lettuce

Saute onion in oil for about 2 minutes. Add garlic and ginger and saute for about a minute. Add meat, soy sauce and chili garlic sauce. While the meat browns chop cilantro and green onions and wash lettuce. Once your meat is cooked add your cilantro and green onions and cook 1-2 minutes more. Serve meat with the lettuce as a wrap.

Note: You can mince your chicken but using your food processor. You want it really fine.


That's Chinese for enjoy! At least I think it's enjoy. Yes, I googled it. Google is amazing! Almost as amazing as P.F. Changs...ok, I'll stop now...
