Chicken Cabbage Cups

Every once in awhile, I decide to veer back into Asian cooking land and hopelessly try to recreate my favorite white carton take-out into a meal that won’t completely derail my attempts to be bikini ready in just a few short months.  Usually, I fail miserably.  Honestly, my boyfriend cringes whenever ginger finds a way into the grocery cart.  However, this time around, using a recipe adapted from, I finally found success – yummy, healthy, crunchy chicken cabbage cups very reminiscent of what you would find at PF Changs.  I like to use Napa cabbage instead of the normal lettuce because it provides more crunch, but either would work.

Also in exciting news – I finally bought a new camera after breaking mine about 2 weeks ago.  Truthfully, I have been using a cell phone to take photos of my recipes which is killing me inside – better pictures to come.
