Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground chicken (could use ground turkey, but I have not)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil for frying
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced or grated
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated
  • ½ onion, small dice
  • ¼ cup Hoison sauce
  • ¼ cup soy sauce (I use reduced salt)

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • salt to taste
  • 1 head butter lettuce or bibb lettuce
  • 3 green onions
Instructions
  1. Add oil and ground chicken to a large skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until half done then add onions. Cook through, crumbling chicken. Turn heat to low.
