Yummy Chicken Cabbage or Lettuce Wraps

It was fun to try something new. It is so easy to think we need to wrap our food in tortillas and wraps. It was a fun change to wrap it in cabbage. It is a great way to eat more greens as well. My son ate 6 or 7 of them. I know he would not been as excited to eat the cabbage, if it had been in a salad. You can roll them up, or fold it over and eat it like a taco.


pouring sauce:
1/8 C honey
2 T coconut sugar or honey or sugar
1/2 C warm water
2T soy sauce
2T ketchup
2 T rice vinegar
1T lemon juice
1/2 tsp sesame seeds
1 tsp dry mustard
3 garlic cloves minced
1/2 tsp chili garlic sauce (Gave it an extra bang. You could try hot mustard instead)

Ingredients for stir-fry sauce:

4 T soy sauce
4 T honey
1 tsp. rice vinegar

Ingredients for chicken stir-fry:

1 T virgin olive oil
4 T sesame seeds
1 1/2 to 2lb chicken tenders (cut in small pieces)
1-8 oz can sliced water chestnuts chopped finely
1 leek chopped finely
1 onion chopped fine
6 garlic cloves minced fine
3/4 C brown rice cooked
1/2 unsweetened fine coconut *optional
1 nappa cabbage head or ice berg lettuce washed well.


1. Mix ingredients together for pouring sauce put in the fridge.

2. Mix ingredients together for stir fry sauce.

3. Put a large pot on the stove, pour olive oil in the pan. Pour chicken tenders into the pan with sesame seeds, cook until lightly browned. Then add water chestnuts, onion, leek, brown rice and garlic. Pour on the stir-fry sauce. Stir it all together. Cook it another 5 to 10 min. on med. low.

4. Serve the stir-fry with the cabbage or lettuce leaves. Pour the Pouring sauce in individual small bowls. (So they can pour or dip it individually).

* I really enjoyed the nappa cabbage. It seemed like a combination of a cabbage and lettuce combined. It was a fun and yummy meal.
