Ingredients

  • one lb ground chicken
  • one tbsp coconut oil or butter
  • four cloves garlic, minced
  • two fresh ginger, grated or minced
  • three spring onions, chopped
  • two tbsp tamari (gluten-free)
  • two tsp honey
  • two tsp sesame oil
  • one tsp crushed chilli flakes (optional)
  • one lime, juiced
  • one head iceberg or Boston lettuce
  • two carrots, julienned
  • one red bell pepper, julienned
  • one cup bean sprouts
  • one handful coriander
  • one fresh lime, quartered

Instructions

1. In a bowl, stir together tamari, honey, sesame oil and lime juice. Set aside.

2. In a pan, heat coconut oil on a medium heat and add the garlic, ginger, and green onion.

3. Cook gently, stirring occasionally for about 2 minutes.

4. Add the ground chicken to the pan and cook until chicken is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.

5. Add the marinade mixture to the pan and allow to cook for another 1-2 minutes until well combined. (For a crispier texture, allow the chicken to cook an additional 3-4 minutes until slightly brown but not burnt.)

6. Once the chicken is cooked, remove the pan from the heat and set aside to serve.

7. To serve, spoon about 1/4 cup of the mixture into a large lettuce leaf and serve with the toppings of your choice. (You can keep the vegetables toppings raw for extra crunch, or gently stir-fry them in a little oil and add them cooked if you prefer.)

8. Serve warm and enjoy!
