Sweet-and-Sour Chicken Lettuce Wraps


Makes: 4 servings

Time: 20 Minutes

These make lovely finger foods. Go with the smaller, inner bibb lettuce leaves.


1/2 cup fresh orange juice (from 1 large navel orange)

6 tablespoons white wine vinegar

1/4 cup honey

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh garlic (from about 6 cloves)

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

12 ounces hot shredded boneless, skinless rotisserie chicken breast (about 2 cups)

8 large Bibb lettuce leaves (about 2 oz.)

3/4 cup julienne-cut daikon radish (about 4 oz.)

3/4 cup julienne-cut English cucumber (about 4 oz.)

1/4 cup unsalted dry-roasted peanuts, chopped

4 lime wedges


Step 1

Combine orange juice, vinegar, honey, garlic, crushed red pepper, and salt in a small saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until slightly thickened and reduced to about 1/2 cup, about 4 minutes. Combine chicken and 1/4 cup of the orange juice mixture in a medium bowl; toss to coat.

Step 2

Divide chicken mixture among lettuce leaves. Top evenly with radish, cucumber, and peanuts. Drizzle with remaining 1/4 cup orange juice mixture and serve with lime wedges.
