Asian Cuisine

Abe served his mission in Japan and so when he cooks dinner, it is almost always Asian inspired meals. We have been trying to make an effort to eat healthier and these are often a good fit! We are both pretty busy without a lot of time to cook, but these recipes have been super yummy and easy! I thought I would share a few.

This one was super easy. It reminded me of the lettuce wraps you can get at PF Changs.

Sesame Chicken Wraps

4 T soy sauce

4 T brown sugar

1 T cornstarch

2 C chicken breast strips

1 T buter

4 T sesame seeds

2 T sesame oil

6 butter lettuce leaves

Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, and cornstarch in a small bowl; pour over chicken and stir to coat. Set aside for 15 minutes. In a frying pan, melt butter over low hear. Add sesame seeds and cook until lightly browned. Set aside to cool. In a separate skillet, heat sesame oil over medium heat. Quickly stir fry the chicken in the heated oil just until cooked through. Combine sesame seeds with chicken. Spoon one-sixth of the mixture atop the center of each lettuce leaf. Fold lettuce into a wrap to be eaten by hand. Place on a platter. Makes 6 sesame chicken bundles.
