Rachel Ray's Thai Lettuce Wraps

From: Megan at In this wonderful life...

Ingredients (serves 4)
* 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
* 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
* Salt and freshly ground black pepper
* 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
* 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
* 1/4 cup honey
* 2 iceberg lettuce heads, cut into quarters and leaves gently removed to make the lettuce cups
* 1/2 cup honey-roasted peanuts, chopped
* Juice of 1 lime
* 1 handful basil, chopped

Place a large skillet over medium-high heat with one turn of the pan of EVOO, about 1 tablespoon. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook in the pan until golden brown on all sides.

Add in the red pepper and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add in the chili sauce and honey and simmer to reduce it and coat the chicken.

To serve, lay the lettuce leaves on a platter, then scoop some of the chicken mixture onto each leaf.

Sprinkle with the chopped peanuts, lime juice and basil.

  1. I made this the other week and thought it was actually pretty good! :) It reminded me a bit of the PF Changs version, although theirs is better, but it brought me back to memories of the states for a while. :)
