mango, rice and chicken lettuce wraps

You'll have some leftover creamy ginger soy dressing for salad later in the week.

For rice
1 cup jasmine rice
1 3/4 cups water
1/4 teaspoon salt
For dressing divide in half and use low fat mayo
1/2 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
6 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup finely chopped peeled fresh ginger (from a 2- by 3-inch piece)
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 teaspoon Asian sesame oil

For wraps
2 grilled chicken breast halves, shredded (2 cups)
this was the leftover chicken from another recipe but all you have to do is grill some chicken if desired with some lime, honey, ginger, hot pepper -then chill and shred
3/4 lb Boston or Bibb lettuce, leaves separated
1/2 seedless cucumber (usually plastic-wrapped), halved lengthwise, cored, and cut into 1/8-inch-thick matchsticks
3 scallions, cut into 3-inch-long thin strips
1 (1-lb) firm-ripe mango, peeled, pitted, and cut into 1/8-inch-thick matchsticks
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Make rice:
Wash rice in 3 or 4 changes of cold water in a large bowl until water is clear, then drain well in a large sieve. Bring 1 3/4 cups water and 1/4 teaspoon salt to a boil, then add rice and cook, covered tightly, over low heat until water is absorbed and rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered and undisturbed, 10 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork and transfer to a bowl to cool to warm.

Make dressing and serve wraps:
Purée all dressing ingredients in a blender until smooth, about 1 minute. It is yummy!

Toss shredded chicken with lime vinaigrette.

Put chicken and remaining wrap ingredients in bowls on a large platter with ginger dressing on the side.

I ate mine with cooked baby carrots for more SF. These are very yummy and a hit with DH. I used 4 breasts and actually had leftovers which is a miracle! I used Thai basil instead of cilantro. Don't worry about fat amount as you don't use much dressing on each wrap.

IBS-A for 20 years with terrible bloating and gas. On the diet since April 2004. Remember this from Heather's information pages:
"You absolutely must eat insoluble fiber foods, and as much as safely possible, but within the IBS dietary guidelines. Treat insoluble fiber foods with suitable caution, and you'll be able to enjoy a wide variety of them, in very healthy quantities, without problem." Please eat IF foods!
