Equipment

Ingredients

  • ½ cup rice vinegar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2-3 chili pepper red jalapeno or Fresno or Thai chili peppers
  • 1 pound chicken ground
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp lemongrass I use Gourmet Garden
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 inch ginger root peeled and grated
  • 1 orange zest & 2 Tbsp juice
  • 2 Tbsp green onions chopped
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro chopped
  • 3 Tbsp peanuts roasted and crushed

Toppings

  • 1 carrot
  • cabbage purple
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 cucumber sliced thin

Instructions

  • Turn the Ninja Foodi on high sear/saute and add in the rice vinegar, honey, and sliced chili peppers. Remove the seeds for less heat. Stir to combine the honey with the vinegar and make sure none of the honey is sitting in the middle of the pot or it might burn. Saute for about 5 minutes or until the liquid has reduced by half.
  • Add in ground chicken, salt, lemongrass, ginger, and garlic. Zest the orange and squeeze 2 Tablespoons of its juice into the inner pot. Continue to saute on high until the chicken is cooked through. This takes about 7-10 minutes.
  • Close the TenderCrisp lid and set to broil. Broil for about 5 minutes or until the chicken has browned up some and the liquid is gone.
  • Add in the cilantro, green onions, and peanuts. Stir to combine.
  • Serve on lettuce leaves and add toppings. Enjoy!
