Chicken lettuce cups

Dani Valent

all details

This picnicky version of sang choy bau is healthy, crunchy and energising, not to mention gluten-free. This quantity will last two children for about three days. The chicken makes great sandwich filling, too.

Ingredients

2 chicken breasts

60g mayonnaise

1 stick celery, chopped into small dice

8 mint leaves, finely chopped

6 chives, finely chopped

1 tsp lemon zest

salt and pepper, to taste

cos lettuce leaves

Method

1. Steam the chicken breasts until cooked through. A whole chicken breast takes about 15 minutes (poke it with a skewer to ensure juices run clear). Set chicken aside to cool. Finely chop once cool and mix gently with other ingredients.

2. Separate the lettuce leaves and send a few pristine scooped leaves to school, along with chicken filling in a separate container, a cold pack and a spoon.
