Bourbon Chicken Lettuce Wraps

My apologies that I don’t have a picture for what we ate.  I didn’t realize until after we ate.  I made bourbon chicken (no bourbon in it though) and this time we served it in lettuce wraps.  It was yummy.  Here is the recipe:

Bourbon Chicken
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
1 – 2 TBS olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed (or 1 tsp. pre-minced garlic)
1/2 tsp. ginger
3/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup apple juice
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 TBS. ketchup
1 TBS. cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup soy sauce
Directions: Heat oil in a large skillet. Add chicken pieces and cook until lightly browned. Remove chicken. Add remaining ingredients. Heat and stir over medium heat until well mixed. Add chicken and bring to a hard boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 20 minutes. Serve over hot rice, in a lettuce wrap, on a salad, etc.

What I did tonight was take some chicken breasts I had already cooked and chopped it up into my processor.  It chopped it a little finer than what I hoped but it was still good.  Next time I’m going to use my handi-chopper (it’s like a slap-chop) so I have more control over the texture.  Anyway, I made the sauce in the saucepan and then added the chopped chicken.  We rolled up the chicken mixture in lettuce leaves and gobbled away.
