Easy Chicken San Choy Bao

San Choy Bao is one of my favourite Chinese dishes. It is a mixture of minced or finely chopped meat, wrapped in crisp iceberg lettuce. These are flavourful enough to suit the adults and fun enough to get the kids tucking in. If you love asian food you will absolutely adore this delicious and easy recipe. It’s the perfect dish for something a little bit different.
Feel free to add fresh chili for some spice.
