Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil or butter
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 fresh ginger roots grated or minced
  • 3 spring onions chopped
  • 2 tbsp tamari gluten-free
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp sesame oil optional
  • 1 tsp crushed chilli flakes optional
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce or Boston lettuce
  • 2 carrots julienned
  • 1 red bell pepper julienned
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1 handful handful coriander
  • 1 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!
