Kathie Lee & Hoda: Chicken Lettuce Wraps + Honey Soy Glaze Recipe

Chef Hung Huynh joined Kathie Lee and Hoda to share his amazingly delicious recipe for chicken lettuce wraps with a honey soy glaze.

Hung Huynh is the chef at The General restaurant in New York City and the lettuce wraps are a featured item there. Kathie Lee shared that garlic is one of the most important ingredients in Chinese cooking. Bibb lettuce is used because it makes it much easier to create a wrap. The great thing about the wraps is that you can pretty much add whatever toppings you want. I would totally fill mine with avocado and carrots. The glaze adds sweetness and a bit of tang. I love how simple, healthy, and refreshing this recipe is.

I’ve made a similar recipe to this before, but the simple lettuce wrap recipe is given a great kick with the honey soy glaze. I like how this recipe is a great way to incorporate vegetables into a meal without really feeling like you’re eating vegetables. I think this is a recipe that would even go over well with kids. If you’re looking for a healthy, easy to make meal to cook for your family, this is definitely it.
