Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, finely minced or ground (or substitute finely chopped cooked chicken)
  • 1 head of Romaine or Bibb lettuce, leaves separated and washed
  • 1 cup Diced cucumber
  • 1/3 cup Sliced green onion
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup Chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Pinch black pepper

Directions

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken to pan and sauté until meat is just cooked through but not browned, about 6 minutes.
  2. Remove pan from heat and allow chicken to cool for 15 minutes. Move chicken to a plate and refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the cold chicken and the remaining ingredients and toss to coat evenly. Transfer mixture to a serving dish and refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow flavors to meld. Serve with lettuce leaves.
