lettuce wrap recipe!

You asked - I deliver! Here is the recipe Guy & I used for the lettuce wraps. They are oh so good!

Ingredients

2/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/3 cup fish sauce (we used a bit less)
1 tablespoon of sugar (we used a heaping tablespoon)
2 teaspoons garlic-chili sauce

3/4 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 pounds ground chicken
1 cup thinly sliced green onions (we did 1/2 cup and the other 1/2 red onion)
Thinly sliced red pepper - up to you on portion
Peanuts - add a nice crunch!

One head of Iceburg or Boston lettuce

Preparation

Whisk first four ingredients in medium bowl to blend; reserve sauce
Bring broth to simmer in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken. Simmer until cooked through, breaking up meat with spoon - about 8 minutes. Add onions & peppers. Stir until vegetables are tender and most of liquid has evaporated, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in sauce and add peanuts. Season with salt and pepper.

Enjoy!
