Lemon Grass Chicken Lettuce Wraps

January 7th, 2011 § 0 comments

I like ‘wrap’ dishes. Tortillas, rice papers, crapes… any kind of wraps.

It’s easy to eat, fun to eat and looks cute, I think.

This is healthy low-calorie lettuce wraps, nice combination of cold crispy lettuce and warm tender chickens.

Lettuce hugs chickens.


— Lemon Grass Chicken Lettuce Wraps (serves 2) —

300g chicken thigh, boned and skinned

Some lettuce leaves

Some coriander stalks

Some olive oil for frying

1 stalk lemon grass, finely chopped

1 clove garlic, peeled and minced

1/2 tablespoon fish sauce

Place the lettuce leaves on a plate, Scoop up a big spoonful of cooked chicken and place it in the middle of a lettuce leaf and garnish with some coriander stalks.
