Let’s Make These Lettuce Wraps!

try these healthy wraps the next time you're craving Asian flavors!

Start by prepping the sesame seeds. To do this, toast them in a dry pan over low to medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly just until golden and fragrant. Do not walk away as they can burn very easily. Once toasted, set them aside. Then, make the dressing by whisking together the dressing ingredients in a medium bowl, 

Next, cook the chicken and veggies. Start by adding one tablespoon of canola oil to a large sauté pan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot (simmering but not smoking) add the chicken strips. Cook until the chicken is golden on all sides and cooked through. Remove the chicken and set it aside. Add to the skillet the remaining oil, carrots, red pepper strips, and ginger. Cook this mixture until the veggies are only slightly tender and still on the crisp side. During the last 30 seconds add the minced garlic and cook just until fragrant. Return chicken to the skillet with the veggies and add the dressing. Toss everything together until it’s evenly combined. Then, all that’s left to do it wrap it up! To assemble the lettuce wraps, lay down the lettuce leaf, add the chicken and veggies and top each wrap with sliced green onions.
