Oriental Chicken Lettuce Boats

One of my favorite restaurants in the cities is Big Bowl.  My sister and I typically get the chicken lettuce wraps for quick little appetizer.  I whipped these up for my mom and sister this weekend with my own copycat recipe! Fully approved and enjoyed by all! 🙂 FYI just a tad messy and eating it with a fork looks stupid.


(3 servings)

2 Chicken Breasts

1 Green Pepper

1/3 cup shredded Carrot

1 can sliced water chestnuts

3 chopped chives

1 Bundle Romaine Lettuce

3 servings Rice Noodles


1/2 Tbs grated ginger

1 Tbs Soy Sauce

2 Tbs Teriyaki Sauce

1 Tbs sesame oil

2 Tbs Honey Ginger Balsamic

1/2 Tbs Rice Vinegar

Crushed Honey Sesame Cashews (Trader Joes find)

  1. Chop chicken into small pieces and pan fry. (Olive oil and sesame oil combo, twice as much regular olive oil to sesame oil)
  2. Once chicken is cooked add sliced peppers, onion, carrots and water chestnuts.  Saute for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Prepare the rice noodles according to package.  I bought mine from Trader Joes in the refrigerated section- just boil for two minutes.
  4. Add noodles to chicken stir fry mixture.
  5. In a separate bowl mix all the ingredients for the dressing, add to chicken stir fry mixture in a bowl and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
  6. Wash lettuce and fill the lettuce boats with refrigerated mixture.  Top with chopped honey sesame cashews! Enjoy!
