How to make lettuce rolls:
The ingredient list may seem a bit long and scary, but I assure you that most of the ingredients are simple sauces and seasonings! The steps are simpler, as I mentioned before, it takes a total of 20 minutes from start to finish.
saute. Heat olive oil in a pan, then cook the onions. Add mushrooms and cook for another 3 minutes, then add garlic and cook until fragrant. Add the ground chicken, cook until browned, then drain the excess fat. tip: Dice onions, chestnuts, garlic and mushrooms to make every bite full of flavor.
season. Season with pepper, ginger and all sauces. Stir until combined, then add the chestnuts and spring onions, and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Remove from the fire.
wrap. Pour 3-4 tablespoons of the mixture into the center of the lettuce leaves. Roll into a small package and enjoy! If you want, you can serve it with shredded carrots, crispy rice noodles, or chopped roasted nuts.
Chicken substitute: Ground pork or ground turkey is an excellent substitute for ground chicken. You can even use tofu for vegetarian food. A reader suggested freezing the tofu to make it breakable, and then continue the recipe as usual.
What is the best lettuce? We like to use butter lettuce, but any lettuce with large leaves is strong enough to hold, but can also be wrapped. It sounds like a daunting task. Here are some other types of lettuce that work: bib, Boston, iceberg, romaine lettuce.
Do I need butter mushrooms? Portobello, cremini and button mushrooms are all versions of each other. The difference is age. Button mushrooms are the youngest. Portobello mushrooms have the longest growing time. Leave butter mushrooms somewhere in the middle. Any one of them can work normally.
What to do with leftovers? Store the remaining chicken mixture in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 3-4 days. Heat in a frying pan. If the mixture looks a bit dry, add some olive oil or chicken broth. You can also freeze the mixture for later use. Put it in a sealed freezer safe container, label it and store it for 2-3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator and heat in a pan.
Everyone who tries these delicious packaging will be addicted, and I think you will too! They are perfect for Chinese New Year and can even be used as a side dish for one of your favorite Asian dishes.
