Today I want to share with you a quick and easy recipe that everyone will LOVE! These chicken lettuce wraps are a copycat version of a restaurant favorite (P.F. Chang’s). They’re light yet surprisingly filling. They make great little appetizers or a flavorful meal. The best part is that you only need a handful of ingredients and just 20 minutes! You definitely cannot go wrong with a simple and tasty recipe like this one.
Everyone who tries these tasty wraps gets hooked, I think you will too! They are perfect for Chinese New Year coming up or even as a side to one of your favorite Asian dishes. Here is the printable recipe…
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- ½ yellow onion, diced
- 2 cremini mushrooms, minced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 lb. ground chicken
- pinch ground black pepper
- ¼ c. hoisin sauce
- 2 tbsp. soy sauce
- 1 tbsp. oyster sauce
- ½ tsp. sesame oil
- 1 tsp. freshly grated ginger
- 2 tsp. sriracha or sambal oelek (optional)
- ¼ c. diced water chestnuts
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- 1 head butter lettuce
- In a large skillet set over medium heat, add olive oil. When the oil is hot, add onion and cook for 3 minutes, then add mushrooms and continue cooking for 3 more minutes. Add garlic and cook just until fragrant.
- Add ground chicken and cook until browned, using a wooden spoon or thick spatula, crumble the chicken as it cooks; drain any excess fat.
- Season with pepper, hoisin, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, ginger and Sriracha/sambal oelek. Stir until combined, then add the chestnuts and green onions. Cook for 3-4 minutes then remove from the heat.
- Spoon 3-4 tablespoons of the mixture into the center of a lettuce leaf, serve with carrots, crispy rice noodles or chopped toasted nuts.
