Cherry Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I came across this tasty asian meal while looking up the weekly deals at vons.com. I made it for dinner last night and mmm….it was amazing. Found ourselves a keeper!


Ingredients
1 tablespoon canola oil

1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root
1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into bite size pieces
1 tablespoon water (this originally was oil, but unnecessary)
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1 tablespoon honey
1 pound dark sweet cherries, pitted and halved
1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1/3 cup toasted and sliced almonds
12 leaves of lettuce
Directions
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add ginger and chicken and saute until cooked through, about 7 to 10 minutes. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together water, vinegar, teriyaki sauce and honey until mixed together. Add chicken mixture, cherries, carrot, green onion and almonds; toss together.
To Serve: Spoon 1/12 of the chicken/cherry mixture onto the center of each lettuce leaf; roll up leaf around filling and serve.
Enjoy! We did 🙂
