Make

  1. Heat a saute pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add oil. When oil begins to shimmer add onions, bell peppers and snap peas. Saute until onions begin to soften ~3 minutes. Add chicken and saute until cooked through ~5 minutes. Carefully pour out any excess liquid from the pan and return to heat. Add sauce and cook until sauce coats chicken and thickens ~3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice and mint.
  2. Serve lettuce, chicken, peanuts and Thai chilis (if using) in individual bowls so you can assemble at the dinner table. Top each lettuce leaf with a generous spoonful of filling, peanuts and chilis and enjoy!

These are the best lettuce wraps I’ve ever had! So easy to make and even my 3 and 4yr olds ate!

Tasty, but so messy in a lettuce cup! We ended up submitting to the extra calories and using tortillas after the first few bites.

So good! I’d add a pot of rice to really round this out.

This was good, but needed a dipping sauce. Not as tasty as the NY Times Turkey Lettuce wrap

This is good -- very similar to a recipe I make from Damn Delicious. But this one has a bit more veggies and herbs.
