Korean Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Korean Chicken Lettuce Wraps

These Korean-inspired chicken lettuce wraps are a quick and healthy lunch or dinner option and packed with flavor! The tender and juicy chicken is marinated overnight in a slightly sweet, tangy, and spicy sauce, quickly seared on the stove and wrapped in a bed of lettuce. I like to top mine with cucumber, chopped cilantro and green onions, and sesame seeds. But it would be great with avocado or other fresh vegetables.

INGREDIENTS

2 ½ Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 ½ Sesame oil
1 Tbsp chili garlic sauce
1-1 ½ Lb. chicken tenders
2 Tsp olive oil
2 Tsp sesame seeds
1 Head butter lettuce
½ Hothouse cucumber thinly sliced
3 Green onions, sliced
Fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
Salt & pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

  1. Season chicken tenders with salt & pepper.
  2. Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, and chili garlic sauce and whisk to combine.
  3. In a bowl, add chicken tenders and cover completely with sauce. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate in the fridge for 1 hour to 1 day. 
  4. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add marinated chicken tenders to skillet, cooking 5 minutes or so on each side, until chicken is fully cooked and browned on each side. Flip for 1 more minute on each side to coat each side in sauce.
  5. Serve chicken with trimmed and washed lettuce leaves.
  6. Top with sesame seeds, cucumbers, cilantro, green onions, and sauce of choice.
