Chicken Lettuce Cups (from Good Housekeeping)
3 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
2 tsp grated peeled fresh ginger
1 tsp honey
2 tsp Asian sesame oil
1 1/4 lbs chicken tenders, cut in chunks
1 cup frozen shelled edamame
2 medium stalks celery, chopped
12 large boston lettuce leaves
1. In a cup combine soy sauce, ginger, and honey. Set aside.
2. In a non-stick skillet, heat sesame oil on medium 1 minute. Add chicken chunks and cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Add edamame to chicken in skillet; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in celery; cook 2 minutes longer. Add soy sauce mixture; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, stirring occasionally to coat chicken with sauce. Makes about 3 1/2 cups.
4. Arrange lettuce leaves on 4 plates. Divide chicken mixture among the lettuce leaves, using a generous 1/4 cup per leaf. Fold leaves over chicken mixture and enjoy!

  1. What are breakfast sundaes? Sounds intriguing! I'm totally going to use your lettuce cups recipe, subbing tofu for the chicken. I clicked over here from MPM, I'm not a crazy stalker stranger ;).
