  • 1/4 Cup Hoisin Sauce
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Pepper
  • 5 Basil Leaves Chopped
  • 1/2 Head Iceberg Lettuce, cut in half for wraps

 

 

Cooking Directions

1. Add olive oil to a large skillet and heat until oil is very hot. Add ground chicken and cook until no longer pink and starts to brown, break it up with a wooden spoon as necessary. Should take about 3 minutes.

2. Add red curry paste, ginger, garlic, peppers, coleslaw mix, and stir-fry for another 3 minutes. Add hoisin sauce and green onions, and toss. Remove from heat then add basil and toss.Transfer cooked chicken to a bowl.
