.Sesame-Chicken Lettuce Wraps.

Last night, I was craving something a little healthy and a little out-of-the-ordinary. That was when I remembered that my friend, Brandi, sent me this recipe ages ago {thank you lady!}. Something that was a little healthy, and a little out-of-the-ordinary. And something totally delish.
Sesame-Chicken Lettuce Wraps
one. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the sesame oil, and then the ground chicken {or turkey}. Stir often with a fork to keep the meat crumbly, cooking until meat is no longer pink, 2 to 3 minutes.
two. Add mushrooms and water chestnuts. Cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes.
three. In a separate bowl, stir the broth, soy sauce, sugar, and cornstarch until cornstarch dissolves. Add to chicken mixture. Cook until sauce in slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
four. Stir in carrot and green onions. Season with pepper.
five. Carefully peel back the lettuce leaves and wash each separately. You want pieces big enough to be able to fill with the chicken mixture.
six. Scoop a heaping 1/3 cup of filling onto each lettuce leaf. Serve with hot chili sauce lightly sprinkled over top.
