Low-cal Lettuce Wraps

If you've read any of my recipes you've probably figured out that I like to experiment in the kitchen quite a bit (my poor hubby). This is another one of my successful "projects". I LOVE the Lettuce Wraps at P.F. Chang's China Bistro but they don't like me. I decided I wanted to figure out how to make a low-cal version that was 1. Easy and 2. Yummy. I think I scored at hit.

4 Small Raw Chicken Breasts diced
1/2 Bottle of SIMPLY enjoy brand Sweet Onion Fig Grille Sauce
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce (Low Sodium works well)
1 Teaspoon Chili Garlic Sauce (or to taste)
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Bundle Green Onions sliced (white & green parts)
8 Iceberg lettuce leaves
  1. Dice Chicken Breasts into small pieces or grind using meat grinder (or just pulverize it in a food processor if you don't care how small the pieces are)
  2. Add Grille Sauce, Soy Sauce and Chili Garlic Sauce to the diced Chicken Breasts. This mixture can be refrigerated for a few hours or even overnight if you want -- but you don't have to wait.
  3. Heat Olive Oil in a medium sized skillet or a wok until it begins to ripple and smoke a little.
  4. Add Chicken mixture to pan and cook until done. Add Green Onions at the end and allow to wilt slightly.
  5. Serve with cold Iceberg lettuce leaves.
