Pinterest is giving me ALL kinds of new recipe ideas. I’ve probably found 9-10 new recipes that we love. I was researching some chicken lettuce wraps and ran across this one. BTW, that blog has lots of great recipe and fitness ideas. I changed mine up a little bit because I don’t like onions. So if you want the “full” recipe, check hers out. She has lots of nice pictures as well!
On to the recipe…
1lb chicken breast (I only used two breasts)
salt & pepper, a dash of each
2 garlic cloves, minced
1in. nob ginger, peeled & minced
1 tbsp olive oil
2 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp water
1 tbsp natural peanut butter
1/2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1/2 of 8oz. can water chestnuts, chopped up
1/4 cup peanuts
Lettuce leaves, rinsed and patted dry
Heat in large skillet on high, add chicken, salt, & pepper. Cook until chicken is almost done. Add in minced garlic and ginger. Continue cooking until chicken is cooked through.
In microwave safe bowl mix olive oil, s.sauce, water, PB, honey, vinegar, and another dash of pepper. Microwave for 20 seconds, stir well, pour over chicken. 
Add water chestnuts and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts and serve with lettuce. I also made some rice to put in the wraps as well. 
Tips* Don’t leave out water chestnuts or peanut butter!
