Lettuce Wraps

I have made these lettuce wraps numerous times.. and the few times I did, everyone asked me for the recipe! Can be an appetizer or a full meal depending on how many people you need to feed ;)

Super easy. Super tasty. Super healthy!

3/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 1/2 tsp. rice vinegar
1 Tbsp. liquid honey
2 Tbsp. water
1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 tsp. sesame oil
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 tsp. freshly grated ginger

2 boneless chicken breasts
1/3 cup grated carrot
2 green onions, diagonally sliced
1 cup dry steam-fried noodles (fine, crunchy cooked noodles)
1/2 cup unsalted peanuts, chopped
1 head iceberg lettuce, separated into whole leaves, core removed

In a small saucepan, over medium-low heat, blend sauce ingredients. Set aside to cool. Poach chicken in a small amount of water until no longer pink. Cool. Cut each breast in half horizontally and then dice to about 1/4". In medium bowl, toss chicken, carrots and onion with enough sauce to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes. Add noodles and peanuts, gently toss with more sauce to coat.

To serve: Set out lettuce and chicken mixture. Let guests wrap their own. Serve extra sauce on the side.
