Number of Servings: 4


    tsp dark sesame oil
    500 g pkg ground chicken
    1 cups sliced medium shitake mushrooms (lightly packed)
    227 mL can water chestnuts, drained and diced
    cup low sodium chicken broth
    2 tbsp soy sauce
    1 tbsp granulated sugar
    1 tbsp cornstarch
    1 large carrot, coarsely grated
    3 green onions, thinly sliced
    8 large leaves Boston lettuce


1.Heat a large frying pan over medium-high. Add oil, then chicken. Stir often with a fork to keep meat crumbly, cooking until meat is no longer pink, 2 to 3 min. Add mushrooms and water chestnuts. Cook, stirring often, for 2 min.
2.Stir broth with soy, sugar and cornstarch in a medium bowl until cornstarch dissolves. Add to chicken mixture. Cook until sauce is slightly thickened, about 2 min. Remove from heat. Stir in carrot and green onions. Season with pepper. Scoop a heaping 1/3 cup of filling onto each lettuce leaf. Serve with hot chili sauce if desired.

Tip: No lettuce? Roll filling into a whole-wheat tortilla, or serve over rice
