Thai Style Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Almond Butter Sauce and Cucumbers

Otherwise known as "the recipe of 1000 ingredients," these Thai-style ground chicken lettuce wraps are actually so good they don't even need the additional sauce, but it came in handy to pour over the white rice I made on the side. I also made a little side of seasoned cucumbers. Don't let the long ingredients … Continue reading Thai Style Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Almond Butter Sauce and Cucumbers
