Asian Chicken Salad

Asian inspired chicken salad that you can also wrap in fresh lettuce.



  1. In a medium bowl, combine the bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, hoisin sauce, peanut butter, soy sauce, hot-pepper sauce, and sugar substitute. Mix well. Set aside.
  2. Mist a large, non-stick skillet with olive oil spray and set over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes, or until fragrant.
  3. Add the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender and just starting to brown.
  4. Increase the heat to medium-high. Add the chicken, ginger, and salt. Cook, breaking the chicken into small chunks, for 3 to 4 minutes, or until no longer pink.
  5. Add the reserved bamboo shoot mixture. Cook for 2 minutes, or until hot.
  6. Stir in the sesame oil. Remove the pan from the heat.
  7. Spoon the chicken mixture, evenly divided, into the lettuce leaves. Set on a serving dish.
  8. Top with green onion and cucumber. Serve immediately.

Delicious! I just made this the other night and I was wishing I had more left-overs. I'll make this one over and over again!

Delicious!! I wasn't sure two wraps would be enough, but the serving size is very generous and makes two very healthy sized lettuce wraps. I am the only one who will eat this, so I have 3 servings left over for the rest of the week. Yippee!

I made this last night with a few variations to suit my families taste buds. Everyone loved it. I mixed sauteed zucchini in with the chicken mixture rather than the bamboo shoots or water chestnuts. And instead in adding the artificial sweetener, I added honey. I also served mine over rice since I didn't have the bib lettuce on hand. I will certainly make it again and even bring as an appetizer to any functions. WE LOVED IT!!

The three of us loved tasty. I used a locally produced habanero-mango hot sauce that made the artificial sweetener unnecessary. Great light meal, fantastic favors! This will be a regular item from now on.
