Ingredients

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-in cubes
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 medium butter lettuce leaves

Instructions

  • In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, saute chicken, onion, and garlic in oil until chicken is no longer pink. Reduce heat to medium and stir in ginger, soy sauce, honey, sugar, vinegar, and cornstarch mixture
  • Bring chicken and sauce to a low simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally until sauce is thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat and stir in sesame seeds, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste. Cool chicken slightly

Notes

Chicken mixture keeps in fridge up to 1 week. It's best if you assemble these right before serving!
