So since I have been home from my trip we have been so busy and eating out a lot more than I like. Ugh. On Sunday I took matters into my own hands to fix this situation and planned out 2 weeks worth of dinners. Then on Monday I went and bought all the food I would need to make these meals. I love when I have this all planned and organized. I feel like life runs so much smoother when I know what is going to be for dinner every night. I recommend doing this if you can. Not only will it help you eat healthier but it will also save you money and time.

My first dinner for Monday night was PF Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps. I knew this would impress my husband and that he would love it. (Chinese Food Lover) I was also surprised how easy the recipe was to make. I paired it with a side dish of Healthy Fried Rice (Recipe Found Here) and it tasted amazing. This is definitely  going to be one I will make again.

Originally Found Here

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha, or more, to taste
  • 1 (8-ounce) can whole water chestnuts, drained and diced
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 head butter lettuce

Directions:

  • Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add ground chicken and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the chicken as it cooks; drain excess fat.
  • Stir in garlic, onion, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger and Sriracha until onions have become translucent, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in chestnuts and green onions until tender, about 1-2 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • To serve, spoon several tablespoons of the chicken mixture into the center of a lettuce leaf, taco-style.

Hope you enjoy this recipe :)
