These Chicken Lettuce Wraps make the perfect lunch-time treat, thoughtfully crafted for post-bariatric surgery individuals seeking a delicious and convenient lunch option that doesn't compromise on taste or nutrition.


Here's what you'll need:
  • 3 tbsp. hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp. tamari sauce
  • 2 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. sriracha sauce
  • 1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. freshly grated ginger
  • 450g ground chicken
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 large lettuce (leaves separated), for serving
  • 185g cooked white rice, for serving


Here's how to make it:

Place the hoisin sauce, tamari, rice wine vinegar, sriracha sauce, and sesame oil in a small bowl, whisk together and set aside.

In a large skillet, over a medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Add the onions and cook for 5 minutes until soft, then stir through the garlic and ginger and cook for a further minute, until fragrant. Now add the ground chicken and cook the meat until it becomes opaque and is mostly cooked through, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon.

Pour the sauce over the chicken and cook for a further 1-2 minutes, allowing the sauce to reduce slightly and ensuring the chicken is cooked through. Turn off the heat and add in the green onions, and season with salt and pepper.

Spoon the cooked white rice and chicken mixture into the center of the lettuce leaves. Serve immediately.
