Slow Cooker Sunday – Crockpot Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

It’s Slow Cooker Sunday! I’ve been sharing a weekly crockpot recipe with you for a couple of months. Today I’m sharing Crockpot Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps. I’ve heard people rave about Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps for a few years now.  I had NEVER tried them.  Wrapping meat up in a piece of lettuce didn’t sound very appetizing to me.  I’d rather just have my Asian chicken over rice.   I love a good teriyaki chicken, so I thought I’d be a big girl and try lettuce wraps.slow cooker Sunday - todays creative blog

THEY WERE GOOD! And someone asked me the next day if I had lost weight.  So I am thinking it must have been the lettuce wraps.  Right?

I started to follow Stephanie’s Crockpot Asian Chicken Lettuce wrap recipe. She’s the crock pot queen.  But I just  had to mess with it a little and add a few other things.  I was out of white wine and almost ran up and down the street to ask my neighbors for a 1/4 cup white wine, but it was before noon and I didn’t want to tarnish my reputation by them possibly thinking I was desperate and hittin the bottle.  I quickly skyped Stephanie……  I love that about the internet! I love that I have so many “blogging friends” I talk to daily.  As I was saying…….I skyped her quickly and she suggested apple juice instead, so that’s what I used.  It worked.

My family gobbled these up and asked for more.  I think my son had 4 of these. Will I make them again?  Yea…….probably.  This chicken would also be really good over rice.

 

 

Crockpot Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Crockpot Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts - cut into really small pieces. (most recipes call for ground chicken or turkey)
  • 2 cloves garlic - chopped really small
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup white wine or apple juice - I used apple juice because I didn't have wine
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger (you can also use what you have in your spice cabinet)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar (same as rice vinegar)
  • 1 head Romaine lettuce,washed. Trim lettuce leaves to the size you want to use
  • Peanuts for garnish
  • Dipping Sauce
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon red chile paste

Instructions

  1. Cut your chicken into very small pieces and place inside your crockpot.
  2. Combine all other ingredients into your crock and stir.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or low for 4-6 hours.
  4. Prep your lettuce leaves by washing, patting dry and trimming. I used Romaine, but butter lettuce would also work. Place your chicken directly onto the lettuce.
  5. Dipping Sauce
  6. Combine all ingredients together before your chicken is done. I like to let mine sit a bit before serving.
  7. Drizzle a small amount onto your chicken filled lettuce, garnish with peanuts, wrap it together and enjoy!
