TIME TO THROW DOWN ANOTHER RECIPE WITH OUR FRIENDS AT THE FIREFIGHTER THROWDOWN! I CAME UP WITH THIS RECIPE WHEN WE WERE IN A PINCH AT THE FIREHOUSE AND NEEDED SOMETHING QUICK AND EASY.....AND HEALTHY. SMALL FIRES THAT REQUIRE JUST A WATER CAN, OR "CAN" FOR SHORT, ARE OFTEN REFERRED TO AS "CAN JOBS" BECAUSE THEY ARE QUICK AND EASY....JUST LIKE THESE WRAPS WHICH IS WHY I CALL THEM "CAN JOB" CHICKEN LETTUCE WRAPS.
"CAN JOB" LETTUCE WRAPS
PACKAGE OF 6 BONELESS, SKINLESS CHICKEN THIGHS, chopped (you can substitute ground chicken or turkey)
1/2 YELLOW ONION, chopped
1 RED BELL PEPPER, seeded and chopped
1 GARLIC CLOVE, chopped
3 CARROTS, peeled and chopped
1/2 PACKAGE SLICED MUSHROOMS, rough chopped
3 SCALLIONS, chopped
2 HEADS OF BOSTON LETTUCE, substitute with romaine if needed
6 TBS. LOW-SODIUM SOY SAUCE
2 TBS. HONEY
2 TBS. HOISIN SAUCE
SRIRACHA TO TASTE
COCONUT OIL, substitute olive oil
Combine soy sauce, honey, hoisin and sriracha in a large bowl. Add the chopped chicken.
In a large skillet heat coconut oil over med-high heat
When the pan is hot add chicken, stirring frequently for 2-3 minutes
Add the vegetables and any remaining marinade, stir frequently
Cook for about 3-4 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. It's good if the veggies still have a little crunch to them for texture.
Place chicken mixture in a leaf of lettuce and garnish with more scallion and sriracha.
