Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps

These turned out really good, my  husband and I’s only complaint was that they weren’t spicy enough.  Next time I cook them will add more spice to the recipe.  Thanks Yumly for introducing me to the awesome http://www.jocooks.com website!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red curry paste

  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix
  • ¼ cup hoisin sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 5 basil leaves, chopped
  • ½ head iceberg lettuce, cut into half

Instructions

  1. Add olive oil to a large skillet and heat until oil is very hot. Add ground chicken and cook until no longer pink and starts to brown, break it up with a wooden spoon as necessary. Should take about 3 minutes.
