Day 20

I made this for a potluck, and boy is it an excellent appetizer!  You could also top a green salad, make a sandwich on some toasted sourdough, or wrap it up in a whole wheat tortilla. Yum!

Asian Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps
2 cups cooked chicken, finely chopped
1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped
4 ounces water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
1/2 cup spicy peanut sauce
1 tablespoon fresh mint, finely chopped
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4-1/2 cup chopped roasted peanuts
*everything should be chopped to about the same consistency
Small Bibb lettuce leaves (my grocery store didn't have Bibb lettuce, so I used endive, which worked really well)

Mix all ingredients (except peanuts and lettuce) in a medium bowl adding chicken broth as needed (if your salad is kind of on the dry side, add more).
Spoon mixture into lettuce cups.
Garnish with chopped peanuts.
