PF Chang Chicken Lettuce Wraps

If you have ever been to the PF Changs restaurant than you know exactly what these scrumptious lettuce wraps are! When I found the recipe on I thought it was almost too good to be true. I made them during our recent snow storm and it was a huge hit!!!! They took less than 20 minutes to make are were delicious!

1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb ground chicken
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, diced
1/4 cup hoisin sauce (we added a little more for flavor)
2-3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbps rice wine vinegar
1 tsp of Sriracha (we love Sriarcha sauce so we had WAY more than 1 tsp)
8 oz can water chestnuts, chopped
2 green onions, thinly sliced
Salt and Pepper for taste
1 head of lettuce


Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add ground chicken and cook until brown, 3-5 minutes (will not get as dark as when browning beef). Make sure to crumble the chicken while it cooks and drain any excess fat.

Stir in garlic, onion, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger, and Sriracha until onions have become translucent. (1 -2 minutes) Stir in chestnuts and green onions until tender. Season with salt and pepper.

Spoon chicken mixture into leaflets (I found it easier to put the lettuce in a bowl and make more of a lettuce bowl) If you like spicier food you can add more Sriracha on top! Enjoy!
