LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Chicken never tasted so good or so good for you.  If you're looking for a quick, easy-to-assemble dinner idea, we have just the ticket.  Home Cuisine's Mae Pike shares a recipe for an Asian Chicken Lettuce Wrap that's big on flavor and low on carbs.

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

1 pound chicken Breast, cut in small strips
8 scallions, white and green part chopped
1 (8oz) can water chestnuts, drained, rinsed and chopped fine
1 red bell pepper, chopped fine
¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
1 tablespoon water
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 large head butter lettuce, wash, dried and leaves separated

Dipping Sauce:

¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
½ tablespoon fresh minced ginger
1 teaspoon sesame oil
½ teaspoon fresh minced garlic

Instructions
1. In a large pan, brown the ground chicken over medium-high heat,

2. Add the scallions, water chestnuts, red pepper, soy sauce, ginger, water and sesame oil. Cook for a few minutes until the scallions and red pepper are soft. Keep warm.

3. In a small bowl, add all the dipping sauce ingredients and mix well.

4. To assemble each chicken wrap: Spoon about ? cup of chicken filling onto one lettuce leaf and roll it up, if desired. Serve with dipping sauce on the side. This
sauce is quite strong. You'll only need 1 teaspoon of sauce per wrap. You can also set up the components on individual plates and serve family style. Let everyone make their own wrap.
