A note about serious food allergies

Ginger's great in soft drinks, in sushi, in her performance in Gilligan's Island, and she's great here with a slight augmentation; she's been pickled! Pickled ginger and sweet chili bring it together here for a lettuce cup of bursting flavor. (And, as always, that fantastic crunch texture.) Great ginger, great meal.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Pickle Carrots

    Coarsely chop cabbage. Coarsely chop peanuts. Mince pickled ginger. Separate leaves of lettuce for cups. Peel and halve shallot. Slice thinly. In a mixing bowl, thoroughly combine half the shallot (reserve remaining for vegetables), carrots, vinegar, and a pinch of salt until vegetables are coated. Set aside to pickle, at least 10 minutes. While carrot pickles, cook chicken.

  2. 2

    Cook the Chicken

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add ground chicken to hot pan. Break up meat until no pink remains and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 7-9 minutes. Stir in soy sauce until combined. Remove from burner and transfer chicken to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

    Cook the Cabbage

Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

  5. 5

    Assemble Cups and Finish Dish
