Ji Song ~ 鸡松 ~ a Chinese Hors d'oeuvre ~ Chicken Lettuce Wrap ~ Method #1

This is one of my favorite dishes, but it is often sooo over-priced at restaurants and really, it's quite simple to make at home . . .

1 Tbsp. oil
3-5 green onions, finely sliced
1/2 cup celery (diced, optional)
1 can water chestnuts (diced, optional)
2 lbs. ground turkey, chicken, or pork
2 1/2 tsp. Demarle At Home Herb Blend (of choice ~ I prefer something w/garlic in it.)
1/2 tsp. salt
4 cups steamed white rice (optional)
1 or 2 heads of lettuce of choice
Hoisin Sauce
Cilantro for garnish (optional)


Method #1
Heat oil in pan on medium heat; add green onions; saute for approx. 1 min. Add next four ingredients and saute until cooked through and/or browned; drain (the juice makes a really good soup base; so you might want to keep it! Email me if you'd like to know how to make great soup with it!).

Note: you can make steamed rice in the microwave using your Round Mold (any size) and Octagonal Silpat!

Spoon rice onto lettuce leaf, then a layer of meat mixture, and top off with a drizzle of hoisin sauce and garnish with cilantro. Enjoy!
