It’s starting to feel summery outside, which means we want to spend less time in the kitchen with each passing day. But we still have to eat…so we’re making Gaby Dalkin’s grilled Thai chicken lettuce wraps from her new cookbook, Eat What You Want. They’re light yet flavorful, quick-cooking and easy to adapt to your own pantry stash.
“Instead of exchanging gifts for the holidays,” Dalkin writes, “Thomas and I like to take ourselves on a little vacay instead. During last year’s trip, we were lucky enough to eat at a chef’s counter where we were at the mercy of whatever he wanted to make. One of the many courses that came out was a Thai chicken lettuce wrap that blew our minds. It was perfectly seasoned meat wrapped in crisp lettuce with crunchy nuts sprinkled over the top. It was a flavor explosion that is easy enough to recreate at home.”
You could swap the chicken thighs for any quick-cooking protein you have on hand (like chicken breasts, ground pork or tofu), just adjust the cooking time to suit. Don’t have lemongrass? Try adding some fresh lemon zest to mimic the flavor. What we’re saying is, you’ve got this.
