Thai Chicken Lettuce Cups

Thai Chicken Lettuce Cups created by Mama Cee Jay

Fresh, light Thai flavor - from Cooking Light and one of my new favorites. The filling can be done ahead of time and reheated before filling the leaves or served cold. Both are wonderful

    Very nice, fairly easy. I can see where this would be a great app'y. I also subbed half the fish sauce with soy sauce. But I used the salt and sugar as well - had to use commercial bottled lime juice, and needed the sugar to offset the bitterness. Diane

    Excellent party food because it tastes great warm or room temp! I made some substitutions based upon what I had on hand and which herbs were growing in my garden. Next time I will try to be a bit more authentic. However, the one major flavor alteration that I did that I will repeat is replacing some of the fish sauce with soy sauce. Otherwise it would have been too fishy for our taste. I did not add salt or sugar since I used soy sauce. Prepared for Asian Unrated Recipe Tag Game July 2009.
