Thai Chicken In Cabbage Leaves

Hey Everyone. I tried this recipe last week. I got it out of Cooking Light Magazine. It is pretty tasty, not to mention healthy and low cal. Give it a try. Hope you like it.


1 cup water
3/4 cup vertically sliced red onion
1 pound ground chicken breast
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
4 teaspoons Thai fish sauce
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
16 napa (Chinese) cabbage leaves (about 1 head)
Lime wedges (optional)


1. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add first 3 ingredients to pan. Cook 5 minutes or until chicken is done, stirring to crumble. Drain. Return chicken mixture to pan; stir in mint, cilantro, juice, fish sauce, and pepper.
2. Spoon about 3 tablespoons chicken mixture onto each cabbage leaf. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.


4 servings (serving size: 4 stuffed leaves)
