Sheet Pan Asian Chicken Stir Fry

Stir fries are one of those dinners that I rely on all the time. They are fast, easy, and I almost always have ingredients on hand that can quickly morph into some type of Asian inspired quick dinner. However, sometimes even the idea of standing at the stove for 15 minutes tending to the stir-fry seems like too much work. On those nights, this is your recipe. No standing by the stove - just toss everything on a sheet pan and in no time you'll have dinner on the table.

Now in true short-cut fashion, here is what I recommend to really make this dinner quick and easy. Chopping veggies can be time-consuming, so instead head over to the freshly bagged produce and grab a bag of Asian veggies. I got mine at Trader Joe's and everything is pre-chopped and ready to go. All I had to do was break up a few pieces of, especially large broccoli. Then while the chicken was cooking, I popped a bag of frozen brown rice into the microwave. Three minutes later - perfectly cooked brown rice. You could use quinoa, brown rice, or cauliflower rice - all of which is now readily available in the freezer section of most stores.


Chicken and Chinese Sausage Lettuce Cups

2. Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until sausage begins to lightly brown, 3-4 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Set aside.

3. Place a stir-fry pan over high heat until hot. Add oil, swirling to coat sides. Add ginger, garlic, and mushrooms and cook until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add chicken and stir-fry until crumbly and no longer pink, about 2 minutes. Add oyster-flavored sauce, soy sauce, carrots, bell peppers, water chestnuts, and cooked Chinese sausage cook until chicken is fully cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in green onions.

4. To eat, spread a little hoisin sauce in a lettuce cup, spoon in some of the chicken mixture, fold lettuce around filling, and eat out of hand.

Continental Meal Plan – Italian and Pan Asian Food for Diabetics

Diabetes diet can often seem to be devoid of any tempting, mouth-watering and colourful food items, given the health quotient to be observed which doesn’t leave much scope for experimentation, but food for diabetics can be delicious and yet be healthy, even if you are eating out.

We bring to you some quick tips to add international flavors to your everyday diabetic food list and yet serve as a perfect diet plan for diabetic patient.

Pan Asian Cuisine as part of Diabetes Diet
Asian cuisine offers many choices for Diabetics. Ask the right questions at the restaurant so you know you are not consuming hidden carbs and calories.

Here are a few BeatO tips to help you make a smart choice:
• Choose Wok tossed / steamed or grilled dishes
• Sauces and gravies are often high calories and sodium. Ask if they can be given on the side. Use it to dip your veggies and meats in.
• Combine starters / dim sums or sushi with a salad or soup for a hearty, yet healthy meal.
• Most Thai dishes have sugar added in them or come accompanied with sweet sauces. Check how much sugar is used and if it can be made without it.
• If the dish is deep fried, check if it can be shallow fried. Common dishes such as chili chicken, sesame tofu are batter fried but taste pretty good with the spices even if had without the batter and not deep fried.

Here are a few suggestions from BeatO’s Pan Asian menu guide. All food items are chosen on the basis of being:
• Comparatively lower in calories & fat than other food items in the menu
• Low GI foods (Glycemic Index)
• Cooked through healthy methods
• High in fiber and protein

Soups: Try one of these.
• Tom yum (Veg/chicken/prawn)
• Clear soup (Veg/chicken/prawn)
• Hot and sour soup (Veg/Chicken)
• Miso soup
• Tomato soup

Salads and Starters
• Som tam Salad – Raw papaya salad with (prawn/ shrimps/ Chicken)
• Seafood salad
• Asian chicken/grilled fish salad
• Stir fry chicken/sea food with chili or basil
• Steamed Chicken momos
• Chicken / seafood sushis

Main Course:
• Stir fry chicken / sea food with garlic, chilli or basil
• Grilled Asian chicken
• Steamed fish with lime chili sauce
• Sesame prawn/ fish

Salads and Starters
• Japanese Miso salad
• Crispy lotus stem salad
• Snow pea and green bean salad
• Tofu / Paneer with chili sauce
• Salt and pepper veggies
• Lettuce wraps
• Mushroom and vegetable sushi
• Vegetable momos
• Edamame

• Bokchoy with mushroom
• Stir fried vegetables
• Chinese greens with vegetables
• Thai wok tossed Tofu

Sides:
• Vegetable /chicken /sea food fried rice /steam rice
• Vegetable /chicken /sea food steamed rice noodles/noodles

Italian picks for the Diabetic foodie
When you think of Italian cuisine, the first thing that comes to your mind is cheese and carbs. However, we wanted to help out Diabetics travel the streets of Rome and enjoy the flavors of Italy in a healthy way.
All food items in this Italian food guide are chosen on the basis of being one or all of the following:
• Comparatively lower in calories & fat than other food items
• Low GI foods (Glycemic Index)
• Cooked through healthy methods.
• High in fiber and protein

Italian food guide
• Chicken, Vegetable or Seafood based pasta with tomato based sauces or olive oil and herbs

• Thin crust Pizzas with vegetables, chicken or seafood. Avoid cheese on the pizza.

• Grilled fish, chicken or seafood dishes

• Grilled vegetable dishes such as aubergine and tomato bake but without the cheese

• Chicken or vegetable stew with multigrain/ wheat / brown bread

BeatO Tips
• Ask for dishes without cheese. Order a small portion of Parmesan on the side instead. You can always sprinkle a tablespoon on your dish for taste.

• Balsamic vinegar, a key ingredient in Italian dishes contains high sugar content and therefore best avoided. Check with the restaurant if it’s included in your dish preparation.

• Opt for whole-wheat pasta or pizza base wherever, possible.

• For salads, ask for the dressings on the side and dip your salad in a bit of dressing to avoid consuming too much of it.

Don’t forget, along with these smart tricks, regular blood sugar monitoring with the help of a smartphone glucometer must not be compromised upon at any cost.


Pan-Asian Persuasion

Tonight's dinner was the result of my asking myself, "Why can't I combine that Lap Gai (spicy chicken) salad that I love so much at the local Thai restaurant with the lettuce wraps that I adore from P.F. Chang's?" The result: LAP GAI WRAPS! Yum and yum, and healthy to boot!

*Please note that there is MUCH confusion about the Thai-to-English translation and spelling of this dish. The most linguistically correct is probably lap, but I do recognize that "lap gai" sounds like a bachlorette party at Chippendale's, and tends to make one inclined to giggle when ordering at a restaurant in public. So choose whichever pleases you aesthetically and aurally (again with the giggling?): Lap, Laap, Laab, Lahb, Lahp, Larb, or Larp. You won't hurt my feelings.

Lap Gai Lettuce Wraps

1/2 head iceberg lettuce

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 lb. ground chicken
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Thai fish sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
2 cups shredded Napa cabbage
1 red chili pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
1 large carrot, peeled and shredded
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves
1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint leaves
1/2 red onion, very thinly sliced
1 inch fresh ginger, peeled and grated
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
juice of a lime
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 package vermicelli rice noodles/sticks

Cut a head of iceberg lettuce in half, remove the core, and soak in cold water for a few minutes. Separate the leaves, shake of excess water, and place on a cookie sheet lined with paper towels, then stash in the fridge to chill.

In a skillet, on medium, heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil, then brown a pound of ground chicken. Remove from the heat, then douse the meat with soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, Thai fish sauce, and sugar. Set aside.

In a large bowl, gently mix together the cabbage, chili pepper, carrot, cilantro, basil, mint, onions, ginger, garlic, lime juice and black pepper. Once the meat mixture has cooled down a bit, combine with the rest of the salad ingredients.

To prepare the rice noodles, bring a saucepan of water just to the boil, turn off the heat, and add the noodles to the hot water. Let soak for five minutes, then drain and rinse thoroughly with cold water. Let them drain in a finely-meshed sieve, and use kitchen shears to cut them into shorter, more manageable lengths.

To assemble, place some of the cooled, drained noodles in a chilled lettuce cup, add a generous scoop of the larb gai salad, and top with a little more soy sauce and a squirt of sriracha, if desired.

Makes about twelve lettuce wraps.


Lettuce Eat Wraps

I love bread as much as most — on burgers, sandwiches, served warm with butter, whichever way you slice it I’ll gladly eat it. But have you ever had a burger or sandwich that seemed like more bread than burger? It’s at times like these that bread can really put a damper on the flavor train. Cue the lettuce. Lettuce wraps or cups adorn a few appetizer menus around town, and we love the platform it gives for flavors to shine. Rather than overshadow its contents, lettuce is a vessel that lends a bright, fresh quality to bold flavors. See, or taste, for yourself… I never really took much consideration when it came to using lettuce as a main ingredient for a wrap, but after I was recommended to look into a site like https://www.boggiattoproduce.com/romaine-hearts-vs-leaves/, where I got an understanding of the difference between romaine hearts and leaves. I found a new appreciation for lettuce and that’s something I never thought I would say!

Teton Tiger

Not one to do anything halfway, the Tiger offers two lettuce items to choose from: Chinese lettuce wraps or Laab lettuce cups. The lettuce cups feature chopped chicken, mint, cilantro, green onions, toasted rice powder, lime and chili dressing on butter lettuce. You’ll see butter lettuce featured in most of the versions we explore today because this lettuce varietal is a solid vessel for transporting food from plate to mouth. You won’t see these leaves grow weak under meats and sauces. Also used for the Chinese lettuce wraps, the butter lettuce contains either tofu or chicken (your pick), stir-fried shiitake mushrooms, water chestnuts, green onions, garlic, ginger, bell pepper and crispy ramen noodles.

Palate

Now that the smoke has blown out of the valley, you’re guaranteed sweeping views of Sheep Mountain and the National Elk Refuge when you dine at Palate in the National Museum of Wildlife Art. These inspiring views are paired with a diverse range of lunch plates at Palate. The beef lettuce wraps (pictured above) hold Snake River Farms skirt steak, Napa cabbage, Dynamite Sauce and Kaffir cashews. The cashews add a pleasant crunch to each bite!

Ascent Lounge

Nestled in the Four Seasons in Teton Village, the Ascent Lounge boasts a cozy mountainside setting and is serving up Pan Asian Cuisine. Think vegetable spring rolls, tuna poke bowls and Thai chicken salad cups. The Thai chicken salad is topped with finely julienned carrots, cucumber, jicama and a cashew mint lime dressing. Avoiding the creamy dressing you’d expect of most chicken salad, this dressing combines bright flavors to round out the fresh, light quality of the vegetables and chicken.

Incredibly, these lettuce wraps and cups have spanned restaurants with varying cuisines. With that in mind, it’s easier to see the twist on this dish that would appear on a Lebanese menu. I’m referring to the stuffed grape leaves at FIGS, in Hotel Jackson. Perhaps not exactly a version of lettuce, these grape leaves achieve similar results: rich flavors delivered in green packages. The grape leaves have been pickled and contain either lamb and rice, or rice and tomato if you’re looking for a vegetarian option.

Local

Succulent pork, fresh lettuce, and pickled cabbage come together in Local’s lettuce wraps. When Ayla Allen, of Jackson, Wyoming wrote us requesting the recipe a few years ago, she called these Korean pork wraps “legendary.” These wraps are not the stuff of legends, but rather, a delicious reality. Get them still at Local or make them at home with the following recipe.


Chinese Appetizers and Tapas

Another great appetizer to make is lettuce wraps! Customizable with so many different filling options, they help you get your green leafy vegetables in by making lettuce the vehicle for eating!

I chose chicken for this menu because just about everyone I know likes chicken. For the vegetarian or vegans with you, it is easy to leave the chicken out of the mix!

Plus you can use your favorite sauce that you have on hand and doesn&rsquot require any unusual crazy ingredients. This is supposed to be easy, right.

This post may contain affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. Read my disclosure policy here.

I start these lettuce wraps by searing the chicken in the Anolon Accolate 12&Prime covered deep skillet. The durable nonstick surface gives the chicken a crispy seared outside while keeping the chicken juicy on the inside.

After I sear the chicken I remove it from the pan and then cook the veggies.

Once the vegetables are tender, add the chicken back into the pan along with the sauce. After a quick toss to see everything is combined, I can keep the filling warm in the oven.

Just cover the pan and the lettuce wrap filling is ready when you are.

When looking at a sweet way to round out the Asian Tapas Menu, I knew I wanted to incorporate matcha, or green tea, along with some Chai spice. Green tea is generally used in Japanese tea ceremonies and not in Chinese dessert recipes, but know it works well with the rest of the dishes.

Being that it&rsquos an easy menu to make, dessert shouldn&rsquot be any different. Grab your trusty puff pastry and let&rsquos make some Matcha Chai Palmiers. Buttery, flaky cookies with fragrant spices are the perfect bite!

Palmiers are crispy cookies made from puff pastry with a simple cinnamon sugar coating but these are kicked up a notch with a Matcha Chai cream cheese filling. They take 5 minutes or less to put together and can bake while you are making the lettuce wrap filling!

I love the Anolon Allure Cookie Sheet for making these Palmiers because the nonstick characteristics make it so you don&rsquot require parchment paper or nonstick spray!

Was so excited to see Pei Wei finally make it to Chicago. I've been here at least ten times since they have opened. Everything is customizable which is great if you've got picky eaters in the family. The service is concise, quick and pleasant. The pop machine is my favorite perk of it all. It's digital and amazing. You'll have to see for yourself. The ginger broccoli with beef and the honey seared shrimp are both amazing. Also try the chicken lettuce wraps . You won't regret it.

When I heard Pei Wei had opened its location in Chicago off of Logan and Elston, I got in my car as quickly as humanly possible. My first Pei Wei was in Pearland, Texas, while I was visiting my best friend. I have now been to the Chicago location three times and have tried a different dish each time. However, my favorites to date are the Mined Chicken Lettuce Wraps and Orange Peel Chicken .

Minced Chicken Lettuce Wraps :
Of course, with any meal, I try to be somewhat healthy. I got the lettuce wraps to go since I was getting some work done. I was surprised to open the bag and find that the staff had done due diligence in separating the lettuce cups from the hot food. The lettuce cups were fresh and crisp, which is good because I hate seeing wilting lettuce . The chicken -mushroom mixture was savory, salty and sweet. A perfect balance, which is what I'm told makes the best meal. The sauce along side was ok, but a bit overpowering for my palette. So, I used the slightest drizzle just for taste. When I had my first wrap , I overfilled the lettuce cup from sheer excitement, so I took note for the second. And by the third, I was a pro. I was full after that and still had two lettuce cups and some of the mixture left. So, I put everything in the fridge for a nice lunch the next day. And as the day prior, the lettuce was still crisp and the mixture reheated beautifully. I ended up chopping everything up into a salad to make it a quick and easy lunch. with less mess. I would definitely get this as an appetizer for a group since it could feed 2-3 people easily. But also, this does make a good, semi-healthy meal for one!

Orange Peel Chicken :
One thing that Pei Wei does right is leaving the actual peel IN the dish. I recently had a French roasted chicken with lemon, and the rind had turned into a sweet, roasted part of the meal. Such is the case with the orange peel with Pei Wei! Many are afraid the peel is bitter and ruins the flavor, but in fact, it is the most flavorful part of the citrus aside from the juice. The sauce scared me, though, as it was so deep in a sunset red color. I was afraid at first glance I had gotten the wrong dish until I took off the lid. I also liked that they had vegetables with the chicken , which was all white meat. The sauce was perfectly spicy, leaving a slight heat tingle on my lips. Which I love. I was also happy the chicken had limited (actually none that I can remember) of that tough tendon section that sometimes finds its way into chicken dishes. The portion was perfect for two people, and it left a "perfectly full" feeling instead of overly stuffed.

Also, if that wasn't a winning experience, just go for a pop! Their "soda pop" dispenser is like a time warp into the Jetsons!

How to Make Peanut Sauce Stir Fry

Start by prepping your peanut sauce. Combine all sauce ingredients into a small bowl and whisk together until smooth. (If your peanut butter is thick, pop it in the microwave for about 30 seconds first.)

Next, drizzle a little sesame (or canola) oil into a large skillet or wok. Cook the shrimp over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes, until no longer translucent (they should turn pink and opaque). Remove shrimp and set aside on a plate.

Drizzle a little more oil in and toss in the veggies. (For the broccoli, I like to microwave it for 1-2 minutes with a little water to steam it before stir-frying.)

Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender. This should take about 5-7 minutes, depending on how soft vs. crispy you like your vegetables.

Turn the heat down to medium. Then, toss the shrimp and the sauce into the pan. If using brown rice noodles, cook them ahead of time and add them to the pan at this point, too. (If you’re having brown rice, you can simply cook it separately and serve the stir fry on top of it.) Stir well for a couple minutes, allowing the sauce to coat everything.

And there you have it: a delicious bowl of noodles, crispy veggies, and tender shrimp slathered in creamy peanut sauce! You’ll find the full recipe at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!
