Thai Lettuce Wraps

"This is one of Rachael Ray's recipes that I got off of the food network website. They're really incredible! Talk about flavor! It's from her 30 minute meals show. However, this took me about 35 minutes to make (with the sesame noodles that she made with them on the same show) probably because I can't chop as fast! They go perfectly with her recipe for 'Cold and Spicy Sesame Noodles'(which can be made un-spicy very easily), which I will also be posting."

  1. I've made these twice, and the family loves them. Lots of flavor! I add some red pepper flakes for a little spice, and also add 4-5 chopped mushrooms and a handful of chopped water chestnuts for a little more texture.
  2. It was pretty good. Next time I will add cashews tho.
  3. Fantastic! Good quality plum sauce is essential. I used quite a bit more fish sauce.
  4. We have made this recipe several times, one time we used a "second rate" plum sauce, it taught us that the quality of ingredients for sure makes a difference in the end product, now we use only the highest quality ingredients and it is stellar every time! All the kids love this recipe too because they get to eat it with their fingers! We use Chuka Soba chow mien noodles instead though.
  5. I have made this recipe many many times, it's one of my go to recipes since I always have all the ingredients on hand. Besides making it with chicken, I've also made it with sliced pork tenderloin, ground pork, shrimp and also just a veggie combo with lots of mushrooms, zucchini and extra peppers... I love it!!!


  1. I used ground chicken in place of chicken tenders.
