like PF Changs from Kelly the Kitchen Kop
Kelly of Kelly the Kitchen Kop blog fame,
generously provided this recipe for Wheat Belly Blog readers. Kelly
prides herself on providing “politically incorrect”
nutrition information, a line of thinking perfectly in sync with the
Wheat Belly approach! (Kelly’s blog is packed full of
unique recipes, for anyone looking for more.)
Terri’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps
My sister, Terri, is also watching her carbs and the other day
she asked if I knew of a good chicken lettuce wrap recipe similar to
P.F. Chang’s. We looked online and were shocked that the
one we both thought sounded really good had super high carbs – pretty
surprising for a lettuce wrap! So she went to work and came up with
this tasty recipe instead which has MUCH fewer carbs. She said,
“Tell your readers that they may be ordering those chicken wraps
at P.F. Chang’s thinking that they’re being
‘good’, but they’re really not.”
4 oz. cooked chicken (preferably pasture-raised chicken), cut up small
Celery-about 2 ribs, chopped small
4 green onion, chopped small
½ can sliced water chestnuts, chopped
8 crispy almonds, chopped
Crushed red pepper to taste
2 T fermented soy sauce (or tamari sauce, if exceptionally gluten-sensitive)
1 T balsamic glaze
I also added some organic sesame oil.
Cook everything on the stove until hot.
To serve, place 2-3 T. of mixture in a cold romaine leaf
or red leaf lettuce. Makes about 7 wraps.
