Just came up with this while trying to find a way to make chicken wraps that were flavorful enough to add some variety to the Atkins diet.

Directions

  1. Cut chicken breasts into thin strips. Add butter to skillet and melt over medium to high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook 1 minute to get the flavors flowing into the butter. Add chicken, hoisin sauce and cook until chicken is white on the outside but still pink on the inside (approximately 5 minutes). Add the chinese five spice, black pepper and soy sauce and cook another 5 minutes on medium to high heat, reduce temperature and simmer covered 5-10 minutes so the chicken becomes tender.
  2. Fold into lettuce wraps!
  3. This is very filling, low carb and low calorie. Enjoy!

This was fabulous! I needed something quick, and I didn't have water chestnuts or mushrooms to use, although they would be a wonderful addition to this. I was craving lettuce wraps, and after my 5th, I am SO full, but it made my pregnant belly happy! :) Thanks for posting this!
