    • 2-3 heads Boston lettuce
    • 1 tbsp (15 mL) Vegetable oil
    • 1 Package Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® Extra Lean Ground Chicken
    • 2 Cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 tbsp (15 mL) Fresh grated ginger
    • 1 cup (250 mL) Chopped shitake mushrooms
    • ½ cup (125 mL) Chopped water chestnuts
    • 1 tbsp (15 ml) Hoisin
    • 2 tbsp (30 mL) Soy sauce
    • 1 tsp (5 mL) Chili garlic sauce
    • 2 tbsp (30 mL) Rice vinegar
    • ½ tsp (2 mL) Sugar
    • 3 Green onions, thinly sliced
    • 1 Carrot, cut into matchsticks
    • ½ Red pepper, cut into matchsticks
    • Chopped cashews or peanuts

  • Directions

    WASH lettuce in cold water, gently pulling leaves apart. Gently spin dry in a salad spinner and sort through leaves reserving any larger leaves for another use and the small ones for filling. Refrigerate until ready to use. HEAT oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add chicken and cook, breaking meat apart with the back of a wooden spoon, until nicely browned. Add garlic, ginger and mushrooms. Cook 2-3 minutes. Stir in water chestnuts, hoisin, soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, rice vinegar and sugar. Cook until all moisture has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely. ARRANGE lettuce leaves on a serving platter. Divide chicken mixture between lettuce leaves and top with green onion, carrot, red pepper, nuts and crispy fried shallots.
