Editor at The Cooking Channel and also a chef and writer, Suzanne Lehrer says it’s near impossible for her not order chicken lettuce wraps if they’re anywhere on a menu. So what’s a chef to do with her favorite dish? Replicate it at home of course! Suzanne created this chicken lettuce wraps recipe that she says just may convince you to throw out your takeout menus and hit the kitchen for a homemade dinner.
A test kitchen favorite at Plated, these wraps are sure to be a hit with everyone! Cool, crunchy Bibb lettuce serves as the perfect pairing for gingery-hot chicken sautéed with sweet and crunchy carrots. Rice noodles stir-fried with sesame oil and red bell peppers, then topped with chopped peanuts and scallions make the perfect side for filling but healthy dinner. Chicken adds lean protein, peanuts offer omega 3 fatty acids, and the vegetables add vitamins A, E and C. The best part? The whole recipe be made in under 30 minutes!
