Dragon Boat Lettuce Wraps

Sometimes I actually cook interesting meals, yesterday was one of those days. We recently went to a restaurant that served dragon boat lettuce wraps. It was a small portion because it was an appetizer that we split. It was so good and we wanted more so I decided to try to make them myself at home. In my opinion the sauce is the main part that makes it taste so darn good. After some research I discovered Hoisin sauce and I can't believe I've been missing out on this stuff for so many years!

So here is the finished product:

If you want to know how I make these, keep reading.......

  • Chicken Breasts
  • Egg Noodles
  • Red & Yellow Pepper
  • Bean Sprouts
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Lettuce (romaine works best)
  •  2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • Hoisin Sauce
  • Peanuts
  1. Heat vegetable oil in wok over med-high heat and add the egg noodles. Make sure to crush them into smaller pieces so they don't clump together and are easier to eat. Once they are done (5-10 mins) remove from heat and set aside.

2.  Meanwhile, prepare your chicken and vegetables. Rinse your lettuce, chop the peppers, onion, garlic and chicken.

3.   In the same wok you just used saute the garlic and onion. Add chicken and cook through. Once chicken is no longer pink add in your peppers and bean sprouts(you can add whatever veggies you like).

4.  Combine soy sauce and brown sugar and mix until sugar dissolves. Add to the stir fry mixture and cook for about 2 minutes. 

5.  Now you can add the hoisin sauce & peanuts. Use as little or as much as you like, I like a lot (4 heaping tbsp).

6.  Finally, add the egg noodles to the mixture & stir for 30 seconds then serve on your lettuce

Enjoy :)
