What's for dinner?....Asian turkey lettuce wraps

A new favorite recipe of mine comes from one of my favorite blogs.   I have made it twice and recommended it to my sister and she even changed it up and made it vegetarian by using mushrooms instead of the ground turkey.  Rumor has it she got rave reviews at the party she hosted.  Ed and I enjoy this meal...the boys have yet to brave it.  I do think they would both like it if they gave it a is not a complicated crazy is very simple.   It is easy to whip together and I think it reheats well.  It makes are really nice size portion.  Ed and I have plenty of left overs.

The broccoli slaw can be found near the bagged lettuce section where they sell "fresh" green beans that are prepackaged and prepacked "fresh" peapods etc.  Our target has it sometimes and sometimes they are out.

1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp garlic salt

1 small drained water chestnuts
1/2 c. Teriyaki sauce (I think you could add a little extra)

A head of lettuce ( or lettuce wrap type lettuce)

1.  place oil into large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes to soften.  
2.   Add ground turkey, salt, pepper and garlic salt.  Cook til turkey is done.

3.  When turkey is cooked, stir in broccoli slaw, water chestnuts, teriyaki sauce and sesame oil.  Cook for another 10-15 minutes or until heated through. 

4.  Reduce heat to low.  Scoop and serve into lettuce.
