Recipe courtesy of Comfort of Cooking

YIELD: Makes 4-5 servings

INGREDIENTS:

1 pound ground chicken

1 red bell pepper, cored and chopped fine

1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 cup hoisin sauce

2 Tablespoons soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper

4 oz. sliced water chestnuts, finely chopped

1 cup cooked rice (I used brown) NOTE: this ingredient can be exchanged for something else if you’re Paleo, grain free, etc.

3 scallions, thinly sliced

1 head Bibb, Romaine or iceberg lettuce, rinsed and patted dry

Sriracha hot sauce, for drizzling, optional

DIRECTIONS:

Microwave ground chicken in a medium bowl, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink, 3-5 minutes. Drain off liquid and transfer mixture to slow cooker. Crumble chicken with a wooden spoon and stir in bell pepper, onion, garlic, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, ginger, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Cover and cook on low until chicken is tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Stir in water chestnuts, rice and scallions. Let sit until heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve with lettuce leaves and Sriracha hot sauce, if desired.
