Thai Chicken (and Shrimp!) Lettuce Wraps

Inspired by the appetizer that my husband and I order nearly every time we go to California Pizza Kitchen.

Ingredients:

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 4 oz shrimp
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • Fresh Lime juice from 1 lime
  • 1 1/2 T brown sugar
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 T rice wine vinegar
  • 1 small sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 pink lady apple, finely chopped
  • 1 small cucumber, finely chopped
  • Approx 6 leaves of iceberg lettuce
  • bean sprout as topping/garnish

Preparation:

  1. Chop the chicken in to very small pieces.  If desired, cut shrimp as well.
  2. Mix soy sauce, ginger, lime juice, brown sugar, oil, and vinegar in a large mixing bowl. Add chicken (and shrimp) and let marinate for at least 10 minutes
  3. In a large pan, saute onions with a bit of olive oil, adding chicken when the onions first start to sweat
  4. If cooking shrimp separately, saute in butter for 5-10 minutes
  5. When chicken is cooked about halfway through, add cucumber and apple and continue cooking until chicken is no longer pink
  6. Scoop into lettuce, add bean sprouts, and roll like a tortilla. Enjoy!
