    Chef Jean's Note:

    Here is a traditional Chinese lettuce wrap recipe made simple. It's best to use a food processor, but if you don't have one roughly chop ingredients by hand. Time does not include cooking the chicken.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    wraps

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Peel carrot, trim red pepper (remove the seeds and white pith parts), drain bamboo. Cut all into inch long pieces.
    2. 2
      Pulse carrot, pepper, bamboo, and peanuts in food processor until they are about small dice size(more like the texture of ground meat, not a paste). Remove to a seperate bowl.
    3. 3
      Pulse the ramen(save the seasoning for use later in recipe), cooked chicken, ginger and nutmeg until they are a similar size to the veggies(if it's not perfect don't worry, just don't way over or way under process). Remove this to the bowl with the veggies and stir well.
    4. 4
      Heat the oil in a large pan. Add the veggie/ramen mixture to the pan and cook for 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      In a small dish mix together the water, soy sauce, half the chicken flavored seaoning from the ramen and corn starch. Stir into the pan and continue to cook for about 5 more minutes or until the mixture has thickened. Season to taste with black pepper(I didn't need any more salt, but you might).
    6. 6
      Wash the lettuce leaves and trim off the very crispy bottom part. Serve the hot mixture in a large bowl and the lettuce on a plate. Each person can make there own wraps by spooning about 3tbls of the mixture into the lettuce leaf and rolling it like a burrito.

      Nice! I liked the flavors of this recipe. Because I did not have wraps on hand I chose to put mine in a pita pocket. Looking forward to making this recipe again.
