Asian Chicken Sausage in Lettuce Wraps


This recipe was inspired by a recipe in Aug 2012 Bon Appetite. I added lemon grass to make it truly an Asian mashup. These little parties were unctuous! I bought chicken thighs and ground my own meat – dark meat is the key to keeping these moist. I served these with sriracha sauce, ponzu and sweet chili sauce.

2 TBSP fish sauce
2 jalapeños, minced
4 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 c shallots, minced
1 TBSP flour
1/4 c oyster sauce
3 – 4 lemon grass stalked, smashed and inner part minced
1 lb ground chicken, preferably dark meat
1 head of butter lettuce

Combine all ingredients except lettuce in a bowl. Cover and refrigerator overnight.

Form into patties. Cook on a griddle or in a large skillet over medium high heat, 3 – 4 per side.

Serves 4 – 6.
