Lettuce Wraps

The ingredients on this have varied for me, depending on what I have at home, but they have never done me wrong. This recipe is for about 2 people.

1lb ground chicken breast
1/2 medium onion, minced
1-2 carrots, shredded
1/2 cabbage, shredded
salt & pepper, a dash of each
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 inch gnob fresh ginger, peeled & minced (I don't add hardly that much)
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
2 1/2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Tablespoon peanut butter
1/2 Tablespoon honey (I use Splenda)
1 Tablespoons + 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce (or more if you like it hotter)
dash of fresh pepper
3 green onions, chopped
1/2-8oz can sliced water chestnuts, drained & chopped (Paul isn't a fan)
1/4 cup peanuts (I've never added them)

1 head lettuce, cut into 2 halves

Sauté the onions and chicken. Add the veggies and cook until tender. Add the remaining ingredients and serve on lettuce leaves.
