 you should store the lettuce and filling separately Chicken Lettuce Wraps Meal Prep

When you store these, you should store the lettuce and filling separately. That way you can remove your lettuce leaves and reheat just the filling. I photographed the lettuce wraps already assembled because otherwise they don’t really look quite as nice when it’s just a pile of filling and a separate pile of leaves.
It also gave me an excuse to eat quite a few when I was done with my photos. This is a lunch I definitely look forward to!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 1/4 lb ground chicken
  • 1 (8 oz) can water chestnuts, drained and diced
  • 3 oz shiitake mushrooms, diced (you can leave this out if you don’t like the flavor of shiitake mushrooms but the PF Chang’s version does use them)
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 head of butter lettuce, leaves removed and washed

SAUCE

  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp regular soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp (lightly packed) fresh grated ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 shallot, diced (you can also substitute with 1/4 of a small onion)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a small bowl, add all sauce ingredients and whisk together.
  2. In a large skillet, add 1 tbsp sesame oil and bring to medium high heat. Add in ground chicken and cook and stir until crumbled and browned. Add in water chestnuts and mushrooms.
  3. Reduce heat to medium. Pour in sauce and stir into ingredients until ingredients are evenly coated in sauce. Cover skillet with lid to cook a few minutes and allow ingredients to absorb sauce. Remove lid, taste and make any adjustments as needed. If you prefer a little sweeter, you can add a little bit of brown sugar. If you prefer saltier, you can add a little more soy sauce. When finished, remove from heat.
  4. Stack a few lettuce leaves on one side of your meal prep container. Place some scallions on the top lettuce leaf. Add chicken filling to the other side of your container. Seal containers and store in fridge. When ready to eat, remove stack of lettuce leaves and scallions. Heat the filling. Then assemble your lettuce wraps.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
