1 lb ground chicken
1 TBSP coconut oil
½ onion minced
1 cup red or green pepper diced
1 8 oz can water chestnuts drained and minced
For the Sauce
3 TBSP tamari
3 TBSP hoisin sauce organic NO MSG!
1 TBSP sesame oil
1 TBSP rice vinegar
1 TBSP almond butter
1 TBSP honey
2 TSP sweet chili sauce ! Trader Joe’s
½ TSP garlic powder
¼ TSP powdered ginger
Whisk together sauce ingredients until well combined. If you use a firmer almond butter you may need to microwave the mixture for 30-60 seconds in order to melt it and ensure everything is well-mixed.
Heat 2 TBSP coconut oil in a frying pan. Once hot, add ground chicken.
Cook until some pieces are starting to brown. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes or until the onion is becoming translucent.
Add the peppers and water chestnuts and cook about 5 minutes, or until peppers are becoming soft.
Add sauce and simmer on low heat until the chicken and veggies are evenly coated and everything is heated through.
Serve in lettuce leaves, enjoy!
