Ingredients
Sauce:
  • 3 Tbsp Thai sweet chili sauce
  • 3 Tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 3 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sriracha
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1½ Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp ginger, minced or 1 Tbsp ginger paste
Filling:
  • 1 lb ground chicken breast
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 6 green onions, sliced (green and white parts separated)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp ginger, minced or 1 Tbsp ginger paste
  • 8 oz mushrooms, chopped
  • ½ cup canned water chestnuts, drained and chopped
  • 1 small red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 heads butter lettuce, leaves removed and washed
Instructions
  1. Prepare the sauce by whisking together ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken and cook until browned, breaking up meat to a crumble as it cooks; transfer cooked meat to a plate and return skillet to heat.
  3. Add remaining tablespoon of olive oil to skillet. Once hot, add the white portion of the green onions, garlic, and ginger; cook for 1 minutes, until fragrant. Add the mushrooms and cook until they soften, about 3-4 minutes. Return the chicken to the pan and stir in the water chestnuts, bell pepper, and the sauce. Cook until the liquid is thickened slightly, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Stir in the green portion of the onions. Transfer the mixture to a serving bowl and serve with the lettuce leaves for wrapping.
