I'm pretty proud of my boys... Thai lettuce cups

My boys are great.

They are smart.

They are cute.

They will try just about anything.

Tonight, they had thai food.  And they ate it.  And liked it. 

And they don't even like lettuce (or at least they thought before they had this!).

Let me say before I give you the recipe... I highly, highly recommend doubling this recipe.  The original recipe says 6 servings, but there is no way.  Plus, leftovers would be awesome!

2 chicken breasts, cut into strips
1 TBSP olive oil
1 green pepper
1/2 package of fresh mushrooms, sliced
3 scallions, chopped
1 tbsp basil
1/4 c chili sauce
2 TBSP honey
1 head iceberg lettuce, cut into quarters and leaves sperated to make cups
1/2 c honey roasted peanuts
Lime juice 

Salt the chicken.  In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat.  Add the chicken.

Cook until chicken is cooked through, 5 minutes.

Add the pepper, mushrooms, scallion and basil.  Cook 3 minutes.

Add the chili sauce and honey until it's reduced slightly.

Arrange the lettuce cups on a plate.

Spoon the chicken mixture into the cups.  Sprinkle with lime juice and top with peanuts.

Wrap it up like a taco and ENJOY!!
