AsianChicken2

Ingredients:
2 tsp canola or olive oil
8 oz white mushrooms, chopped
1 lb lean ground chicken
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup green onions, sliced
1 (8 oz) can sliced water chestnuts, drained and chopped
8 large lettuce leaves
2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 1/2 tsp lower sodium soy sauce
1 tsp honey
Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste

Directions:
Heat canola oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Place mushrooms in a large bowl, set aside.

Add chicken, garlic and ginger to skillet and cook for 6-7 minutes or until chicken is brown, breaking the meat up as it cooks. Combine the chicken mixture with the bowl of mushrooms; add green onions and water chestnuts; toss together. Combine sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, lower-sodium soy sauce, honey and crushed red pepper flakes in a small bowl; whisk to mix well. Divide chicken mixture evenly between each lettuce leaf and top with sesame oil mixture. Optional: Garnish with fun, bright extras, like the red peppers and scallions seen above.

My wrap started to get messy, so I just turned this into an Asian inspired salad!
