007 Lettuce Wraps

Okay, so truth is - these are just your average, run-of-the-mill Lettuce wraps. No Guns, double-agents or espionage. Just Lettuce, and the things you wrap inside them. I was sooo hungry at the time of consumption. we're talking 'mission, acquired. Target, terminated.' hungry.

In case you're wondering why I am speaking in such an odd manner about dinner - its due to the fact that it took place on our couch. (Or as I like to call it the cheapest movie theatre ever, where you are allowed to bring outside food and drink.) All the while we watched the new Bond Skyfall, while munching away. Quick note: Lettuce wraps are a messy food to eat without table.

Like many movies me and the husband watch together, I found that I was not cultured enough to not enjoy it. As in, I loved the movie and "had absolutely no idea" all the ways in which the series was being "completely defiled". Oh my husband, the perfect Bond fanboy. As he sang skyfall along with Adele I questioned, "Isn't this a whole new song?"

Annoyed, he turned to me, "yes, babe - I looked it up."

Back to lettuce wraps - this was a crock pot recipe, and I soooo easy. adapted from bhg.
Ingredients:
2 lbs cooked chicken breast (shredded)
1 8-ounce can water chestnuts, drained and chopped
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup edamame
4 teaspoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon Chinese-style hot mustard
2 teaspoons teriyaki sauce
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 14.5-ounce can chicken broth
Directions:
1.  In slow cooker combine cooked chicken, water chestnuts, carrots, edamame, soy sauce, mustard, teriyaki sauce, vinegar, and pepper and broth.
2.  Cover & cook on low for 5 hours or on high for 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
3. Drain, and serve with Lettuce.

*Note: I used shredded chicken breast because that's what I had on hand, but usually Lettuce wraps are made from ground chicken. I easily shredded my chicken in my Kitchen Aid.

    1. I thought you would be proud. I should adapt the mindset "what would Bekah cook" in the kitchen. Husband and I would be a lot healthier.
