Total time: 15 to 30 minutes

Marinade: 2 to 4 hours
Cooking time: About 10 minutes

Difficulty: Easy
- 500 g / 1 pound chicken
- 2 heads romaine lettuce
- 2 (1 ounce) scallions
- 1 or 2 Tbsp. soy bean oil or vegetable oil

- 3 Tbsp. fresh ginger, minced
- 1 Tbsp. garlic, minced
- 1/2 Tsp. dry chili flakes
- 2 Tbsp. soy bean oil or vegetable oil
- 2 Tbsp. soy sauce

- Citrus soy mixture
- 125 ml / ½ cup fresh orange juice
- 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
- 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
- 60 ml / 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp. hoisin sauce

Preparation 1

  1. Dice the chicken into tiny pieces.
  2. Place the chicken in a mixing bowl and add 2 Tbsp. soy bean oil, ginger, garlic, chili flakes and 2 Tbsp. soy sauce. Mix together in circular motion
  3. until well mixed. Let marinate in refrigerator for 2-4 hours.

Preparation 2

  1. Mix together the 3 citrus juices, soy, and hoisin sauce with a whisk. Reserve until needed.
  2. Clean the romaine lettuce, chopping off the stem, peeling each ‘spear’ and running under clean cold water. Reserve in refrigerator until ready to use.
  3. Chop scallions into rings and reserve chilled.


  1. Coat a very hot sauté pan lightly with soy bean oil.
  2. Lay the chicken around the sauté pan being careful not to lay too many on top of each other. Sear the chicken until crispy and golden brown, about 2 ½ minutes. Once chicken is brown, toss gently in pan and sear another 2 ½ minutes. The
  3. pan will appear to “burn”, but that is the carmelization and where all the flavor comes from.
  4. Add 1/2 of the citrus soy mixture to the sauté pan and coat well. Let the sauce coat the chicken until it is glazed, and thickens on the chicken. Add more or less depending on how “wet” you want your mixture. Spoon chicken onto a plate.


  1. Wrap the chicken mixture in romaine lettuce and top with scallion rings. Serve and enjoy!
