P.F. Chang’s Lettuce Wraps are one of my favorite restaurant meals that you can order and not feel guilty about afterwards. These wraps are one of the healthier menu items that most casual dining restaurants like this have to offer.
The wraps are super easy to make, are high in protein and are an affordable option to make at home. Kids love to eat them too!
The recipe below makes 4 servings
- 16 Boston, bibb or butter lettuce leaves
- 1 pound ground chicken breast
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
- 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
- 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar or red wine vinegar
- 2 teaspoons Asian chili pepper sauce (see Note)
- 1 can (8 ounce size) sliced water chestnuts, drained, finely chopped
- 1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
- 2 teaspoons Asian sesame oil
Rinse all of the lettuce leaves, whole. Shake off the water and set aside.
Cook the chicken in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring often while breaking up the meat.
Slowly add the onion, garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, vinegar and chili sauce.
Continue to cook until the chicken has crumbled and browned.
Add water chestnuts and green onions.
Cook until onions begin to wilt, which should take about 2 minutes.
Stir in sesame oil.
When the meat mixture has cooked, remove it from heat. Spoon the mixture into the lettuce leaves and eat them like a taco.
