Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ tbsp canola oil
  • 12 oz Hungry Planet Chicken™
  • 3 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 ⅛ tsp sesame oil
  • ⅓ cup scallion
  • 1 ⅔ tbsp garlic, minced
  • ½ cup yellow bell pepper, chopped

  • 1 ¾ tsp Sambal Olek
  • 2 ¼ tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 ¼ tbsp ginger, grated
  • 1 ½ tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 ⅓ tbsp sweet chili sauce
  • 1 head butter lettuce
  • 1 ½ cups white rice, cooked

Instructions:

  • Step 1.

    Heat 1 ¼ tbsp canola over high heat. Sear 12 oz Hungry Planet Chicken™, stirring every so often (every 1-2 minutes). Add 3 tsp soy sauce when almost finished searing (3-5 minutes), stir, then remove Hungry Planet Chicken™ from the pan.

    Add 1 ⅛ tsp sesame oil in pan and turn heat down to medium high. Add ⅓ cup scallions, 1 ⅔ tbsp garlic, and 1 cup chopped peppers and cook until peppers begin to soften (about 3-4 minutes). When finished cooking, add vegetables to the Hungry Planet Chicken™ and mix to combine. Taste for seasoning. Hold warm.

  • Step 3.

    Combine 1 ¾ tsp Sambal Olek, 2 ¼ tbsp hoisin sauce, 1 ¼ tbsp ginger, 1 ½ tsp sesame oil, 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar, 2 ⅓ tbsp sweet chili sauce and mix well to create the sauce. Serve on the side.

  • Step 4.

    To assemble: hold a cleaned and trimmed individual butter lettuce leaf in hand, scoop about 1 oz of cooked jasmine rice, 2 oz of Hungry Planet Chicken™ and vegetable mixture, and a drizzle of sauce on top, wrap and enjoy immediately.
