Chicken Lettuce Cups - Gluten Free


I will be trying these for the first time Saturday at P.F. Chang's and if they are as good as people say they are, I will have an at home version!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon cooking oil (I'd probably use olive oil_
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic (2 – 3 cloves)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely grated (optional)
  • 4 green onions, finely sliced on the diagonal
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 cup grated carrot (2 – 3 carrots)
  • 1 8-ounce can whole water chestnuts cut into ¼ inch dice
  • 6 Tablespoons San-J Asian BBQ Sauce plus more for serving
  • 1 large head Boston Bibb lettuce - leaves separated, washed and dried
  • Optional Garnish:
  • 1 skein (2 ounces) mung bean vermicelli
  • Cooking oil (olive oil or sunflower oil)
  • Kosher or fine sea salt

  • Cooking Instructions
  • Servings: 4 as entrĂ©e, 6 as appetizer
  • Heat a large skillet or wok over high heat. Add the 1 tablespoon cooking oil, heat for a minute then add the garlic, ginger and 2 sliced green onions. Cook for 30 seconds or until very fragrant, stirring constantly. Add the chicken and cook through, stirring frequently, about 8 minutes. Add the remaining 2 green onions, the carrots and the diced water chestnuts. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add 6 tablespoons San-J Asian BBQ Sauce, stirring until heated through – about 30 seconds.
    To make the garnish, place paper towels on a dinner plate. Using your hands, gently pull the mung bean vermicelli noodles apart into smaller portions. Heat 2 inches of oil in a small saucepan or wok (the smaller the pan, the less oil you will need) to 375°F (rippling but not smoking). Fry one small handful of noodle at a time until they puff up – 5 – 10 seconds. Remove from oil with tongs or a strainer – place on the prepared plate and sprinkle with a little salt.
    To serve dip the back of a spoon into a small bowl of San-J Asian BBQ Sauce, spread into a lettuce leaf, spoon in some filling and top with the fried mung bean noodles if desired.

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
