Luciís Soothing Lettuce Wraps
2 breasts of chicken, boneless and skinless, sliced into fajita strips
1 Portobello mushroom cap, stem removed and diced finely (1/4" dice)
1/2 onion, finely diced
3 green onion tops, sliced
1/2 cup diced water chestnuts
1/2 cup bean sprouts
1 clove elephant garlic, minced (or 1/4 tsp. minced regular garlic)
Soy sauce (find the lowest carb one, duh :) )
A head of iceberg, or some romaine hearts
1 cup 0-carb chicken broth
1 tsp. HOT Chinese mustard
2 tsp. regular yellow mustard
red pepper flakes
1 packet Equal
Sprinkle the chicken with just a tad of salt; Heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil,
1 tsp. sesame oil, and a sprinkle of chili oil in a big skillet.
Sear the chicken in the hot oil, then turn down heat and cook until done;
set aside to cool, then dice.
In the same oil, sauté the onions until tender. Add the mushrooms and a little water, then cook until they are soft. Add the garlic and green onion tops, stirring constantly so that the garlic doesn't burn. Throw in the water chestnuts and the sprouts, mix well, and add 2 Tbsp. soy and a little more chili oil. Add back in the diced chicken, and Voila! There's your filling. Adjust the seasonings to your taste.
Nuke the chicken broth till piping hot, then whisk in the mustards, Equal, red pepper, and chili oil. Add enough soy sauce to make it taste the way you like.
Using a lettuce leaf, fill it with filling and top with a spoon or two
of sauce. YUM!!!! Heaven! Hope you all enjoy!
