Chinese Chicken Lettuce Wraps


MMMM! I had a girls night last night and surprised the girls by making dinner for them since they were working a bit later than me... We had planned on ordering pizza but are all on a health kick so I thought this would be a better alternative. I found this yummy recipe by Cosmopolitan by Googling, "Girls night recipes". Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!!! 
1 packet stir-fry seasoning powder
1/4 c. water
2 T soy sauce
2 T fresh lime juice
1 t. sugar
1 T canola oil
1 lb. ground chicken breast
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/4 c. water chestnuts, diced
2 T scallions, thinly sliced
Pinch red chili-pepper flakes
1 head of romaine lettuce
Garnishes: bean sprouts, chopped mint, cilantro, peanuts 
In a small bowl, combine seasoning, water, soy sauce, lime juice, and sugar. Set aside. Heat canola oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken, using a wooden spoon to break up the meat. Cook until browned, about 10 minutes. Add red bell pepper, water chestnuts, scallions, and red chili-pepper flakes, and cook 5 minutes. Stir in sauce.
Cook until liquid evaporates, about 2 to 3 minutes. Garnish with herbs, sprouts, and peanuts.
