  • Summary

    Carrots pull double duty here -- they go into the poaching liquid for the chicken, and they're tossed with rice vinegar to make a crunchy topping for the lettuce cups.

    Ingredients

    • 2 bone-in, skin-on chicken-breast halves (1 3/4 pounds total)
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 1/4 cup minced ginger (from a 4-inch piece)
    • 1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions, white and light-green parts only, plus separated scallion tops (from a 4-ounce bunch)
    • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped, plus 2 cups carrot ribbons cut with a Y-peeler (from 3 carrots)
    • 1/3 cup safflower oil
    • 1 tablespoon rice-wine vinegar
    • Bibb-lettuce leaves, chopped roasted peanuts, and cilantro sprigs, for serving
