This Korean-inspired dish is great for people trying to cut down on carbohydrates, because the meat is wrapped in lettuce instead of served on bread.

2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon Asian chili-garlic sauce
1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper
3 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs, trimmed of visible fat

How to Make It
Light a grill. In a medium bowl, combine 1/4 cup of hoisin sauce with the soy sauce, honey, grated ginger, minced garlic, chili-garlic sauce and sesame oil. Season the barbecue sauce with salt and pepper.
Brush the chicken lightly with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the chicken over a hot fire, turning occasionally, until golden and almost cooked through, about 10 minutes. Brush with the barbecue sauce and grill, turning and brushing, until golden brown, about 3 minutes longer. Transfer the chicken to a work surface and let stand for 5 minutes, then cut it into 1/2-inch strips.
Arrange the chicken and lettuce on a platter. Allow guests to make their own wraps by brushing a small amount of hoisin sauce on a lettuce leaf, topping it with cucumber, scallions, chicken and a squeeze of lime and rolling it up.
Review Body: I was born and raised in Korea. This recipe is not even remotely Korean, especially thr first ingredient listed is Hoisin sauce. Traditionally Koreans don't use it. And no, we are the same as Chinese. I wonder what part of ingredient or cooking method is Korean. I don't think you should even name it Korean style. Just call it "Asian" as many white washed dishes are ambiguously called in North America.
