Ingredients
  

  • 2 pounds skinless boneless chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 C all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp sesame oil divided
  • 6 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 6 Tbsp seasoned rice vinegar
  • 4 scallions thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp of peeled and minced fresh ginger
  • 1, 10 oz bag frozen mango chunks*
  • 16 large bibb lettuce leaves
  • 1/4 C chopped fresh cilantro for topping
  • optional: lime wedges for serving
  • optional: salted peanuts chopped for topping

Instructions
 

  • Place chicken, flour, and salt into a gallon-sized zip-top bag, seal tightly, and shake vigorously until all pieces of chicken are coated evenly. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1.5 Tbsp of sesame oil over medium heat. Add the chicken and pan-fry until lightly browned (5-8 minutes) and transfer to a bowl.
  • Add remaining sesame oil to the skillet. Add scallions, garlic, and ginger and cook until fragrant (about 1 minutes). Add the soy sauce and rice vinegar into the pan and scrape the bottom of the pan with your wooden spoon to loosen any residue (leave it in the pan, this is full of flavor!).
  • Add the chicken back into the skillet and cook until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165°F (about another 3-5 minutes).
  • Add mango pieces to the skillet and cook until thawed (about 1-2 minutes).
  • Remove from the heat, and spoon filling into lettuce leaves to serve.
  • Top with cilantro and enjoy!

Notes

*Fresh mango can be used in this recipe if desired. I’ve recommended frozen mango because it’s so easy and convenient to use.
