Chicken Around the World


After yesterdays superb Chicken Enchilada results, I thought, why not take chicken around the world.

I will be posting recipes from, Asia, India, Hungary, Spain and last but not least, from Russia with love!

Today I will start with Asia

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Serving Size: 2-3 lettuce wraps , 4 PointsPlus

4 chicken breasts, diced into small pieces
1 red pepper, diced
1/4 red onion, diced
1 head of iceberg lettuce
Chopped scallions, cilantro, and bean sprouts for garnish
1 tbsp canola oil

For stir fry sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp Splenda sugar blend
4 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/8 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp Asian chili sauce
1/8 cup water


In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the stir fry sauce together and whisk together well. Set aside 1/2 of the recipe to use as sauce with the chicken lettuce wraps.

Heat the olive oil in a large non stick pan or wok. Add the diced chicken, onions, peppers, and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the remaining stir fry sauce and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes until sauce begins to thicken slightly and chicken is cooked through.

Serve in individual sections of lettuce, with fresh cilantro, bean sprouts, and scallions.

They seriously taste better then they look

      Thanks L. They were very good. My co-worker at WW suggested wrapping it in a piece of warm lavosh, sort of like a burrito
