These flavorful Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps are super easy to make with ground chicken (or turkey) and veggies cooked in an irresistible Asian-inspired sauce and served in crisp lettuce cups. A PF Chang’s copycat recipe that’s light, healthy and tastes even better than the restaurant version!

Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons avocado or olive oil
  • 1 pound ground chicken or turkey
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts, drained and finely diced (optional)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup green onions, sliced
  • sea salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 head butter lettuce, leaves separated
  • sriracha sauce, optional for drizzling over the top of wraps and rice for serving
Instructions
  1. Heat a large skillet with avocado or olive oil. Add the onion and cook on medium heat for a few minutes until it softens. Add in the water chesnuts, garlic and ginger and stir for a few minutes. Add the ground chicken and season with salt & pepper. Cook until no longer pink.

  2. Add the hoisin, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, & sesame oil. Stir together & add in green onions. Cook on low for a few more minutes & then it’s done!

  3. Serve the chicken mixture over bibb lettuce and rice, if desired. Add a little drizzle of sriracha to the top for some heat. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Chicken Lettuce Wraps are a great make-ahead meal! In fact, they taste even better the next day! Store the filling in a container in the fridge, separate from the lettuce that's stored in its own container.
