Spicy Chicken Lettuce Cups

These are quick and easy to make, and are delicious.

They are also suitable to be heated up at another time.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients
4 lettuce leaves
1 tbsp oil
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
½ tbsp ginger
1 - 2 spring onions, white and green separated, sliced thinly
½ small carrot, julienned
½ red chili, finely chopped
250 g chicken mince
1 tbsp soy sauce
Bit of coriander, fresh to garnish

Method
  • Take out the core of the lettuce, and put the remaining lettuce in a bowl of cold water for about 10 minutes.

  • This will make it easier to separate the leaves in one piece. Separate them and keep about 4 of the best ones and cut them neatly. Cover and put in the fridge till needed.

  • Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan over a medium to high heat. Cook the carrots, chili, garlic, ginger and whites of the spring onions for about half a minute.


  • Add the chicken mince and stir fry for about 5 minutes or until it is cooked through the remaining ingredients.

  • Add the soy sauce with about 1 - 2 tbsp water and cook, stirring often, until most of the water has evaporated.


  • Divide the mixture evenly into the 4 chilled lettuce cups.

  • Put the coriander on the top as decorations, as well as the greens of the spring onions.

  • I served it with my potato bake.
