Craving Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Featured Recipe: Chicken Lettuce Wraps
I know it’s time to hit the test kitchen to develop a new recipe when I find myself obsessed with one dish. I have been on a chicken lettuce wraps kick lately. Found on numerous Asian restaurants appetizer menus to share, I’ve been ordering the sweetly-hot and perfectly textured treats for dinner and not sharing even one.
Recently I walked into one of my favorite Chinese restaurants here in Wilmington (NC) and the owner said, “Ahhh, lettuce wraps” as soon as she saw me. That’s when I knew I had to master them at home.
Turns out they are unbelievably easy and remind me so much of the chopped meat skillet meals I was the queen of back in the Desperation Dinners, feed-the-hungry-family-of-four-fast-days. Even though those days are long gone for me, I still sized the portion for four because they make great leftovers if your family is smaller. If you need to feed a larger crowd, it doubles just as easy.
Now that I have my own recipe that I can do in less than 20 minutes, I can move on to the other delicacies at my favorite restaurants. At least until another obsession occurs….
