1. Preheat pot over medium-high heat.
2. Add garlic, and cook for 3-5 minutes. (Heat until you see little bubbles around the garlic.)

hCG Recipe ~ Lettuce Wraps <3

Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients:
Minced Chicken (3 1/2 oz)
Minced fresh ginger...about a 1/2 inch piece
Minced fresh garlic
Minced green onion
Chopped celery stalk
veggie broth to cover bottom of pan (10 cal, 0 fat, 0 carbs)
1 tsp Asian Red Chile Sauce (0 calories, 0 fat, 0 carbs, 0 sodium)
1/2 - 1 tsp Chinese 5 spice
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp wheat free Tamari sauce ( 8 cal, 0 fat, 0 carbs, 150 mgs sodium)
Iceberge lettuce leafs

Braise (medium heat) ginger, garlic, celery, and onion til soft then add chicken, cook until no longer pink.
Add:
1 tsp Asian Red Chile Sauce (0 calories, 0 fat, 0 carbs, 0 sodium)
1/2 - 1 tsp Chinese 5 spice
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp wheat free Tamari sauce ( 8 cal, 0 fat, 0 carbs, 150 mgs sodium)

Cook about 5 minutes more, stirring over low heat to reduce liquid. Remove from heat, spoon into whole lettuce leafs and roll; Bibb lettuce, Boston lettuce or Iceberg works really well.

The one thing it's missing is Hoisin sauce. If you feel you have the wiggle room to add the calories, it's 9 per teaspoon-- just be aware that Hoisin has sugar, oil and yeast in it. The 9 calories may not be worth the flavor

If using the crockpot, you can use cut up uncooked chicken (even frozen!). Feel free to add your allowed vegetable to this as well - I usually add Rotel tomatoes, onion, and celery to make it more filling since our protocol allows mixed veggies
