Slow Cooker Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps


1 lb ground chicken
1 red bell pepper, chopped fine
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
4 oz. sliced water chestnuts, finely chopped
1 cup cooked rice (I used brown)
3 scallions, thinly sliced
1 head Bibb or Romaine lettuce (I used Bibb)

Saute ground chicken until chicken is no longer pink.  Drain off liquid and transfer mixture to slow cooker.  Crumble chicken with a wooden spoon and stir in bell pepper, onion, garlic, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, ginger, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/8 tsp of pepper.  Cover and cook on low until chicken is tender, 1.5 to 2 hours.

Stir in water chestnuts, rice and scallions.  Let sit until heated though, about 5 to 10 minutes.  Serve with lettuce and hot sauce, if desired.

Thank you Pinterest for another delicious, super easy recipe that took no time to prep! It's no secret how much I love my crock pot!  Click HERE for original recipe!  Also, I pretty much had all the ingredients in my pantry other than the chicken, water chestnuts, hoisin sauce and lettuce.  All in all, it ended up being a relatively inexpensive meal!
