    4 tsp. Coconut Oil

    1/2 c. Red Bell Pepper, thinly sliced
    1/2 c. Carrots, sliced into matchsticks
    1/2 c. Water Chestnuts, chopped
    4 tsp. Garlic, minced
    1 lb. Ground Chicken Breast (99% lean)

Experiment with different lettuces; we enjoy Romaine the most.


In a small bowl, combine fish sauce, brown sugar, soy sauce, and black pepper. Stir to dissolve sugar and set aside.

Heat large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add carrots and sautee 1 minute. Add onions, bell pepper, garlic, and water chestnuts; sautee 1 minute. Remove from pan. Add remaining 2 tsp. oil to pan, swirl to coat. Add chicken, stirring to crumble. When chicken is browned, add Serrano pepper cooking an additional minute, then add the vegetable mixture back to pan and cook 1 minute.

Add sauce to chicken and vegetables. Cook 1 minute until all ingredients are well combined. Remove from heat and stir in basil and 1 Tbsp. lime juice.

Serve in lettuce leaves with lime wedges on the side.
