“Cabbage is a tasty low-calorie stand-in for buns or bread in this healthy chicken lettuce wrap recipe. Don't limit yourself to cabbage for this Thai-inspired recipe—any fresh green that's sturdy enough to wrap around ½ cup of filling works.”

Ingredients

    • 8 small napa or Savoy cabbage leaves or 4 large, cut in half crosswise
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil
    • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed and cut into bite-size pieces
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • 5 tablespoons prepared peanut sauce
    • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
    • 1½ teaspoons lime zest
    • 1 cup julienned Asian pear
    • 1 cup julienned English cucumber
    • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  • 1 Wash and dry cabbage leaves well and cut out any tough ribs or stems.
  • 2 Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, season with salt and cook, stirring often, until cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes.
  • 3 Meanwhile, whisk peanut sauce, vinegar and lime zest in a small bowl.
  • 4 Remove the pan from the heat, add the sauce mixture and stir to combine. Serve the chicken in the cabbage leaves, topped with pear, cucumber and cilantro.
