One of my favorite things to order at PF Chang’s is the chicken lettuce wraps. I love them so much I began the hunt to find the perfect lettuce wrap recipe so that I could make them at home. After many tries and changing up the recipe to fit what I liked I have come up with a great lettuce wrap recipe.
The great thing about this recipe is that you can make it how you like by using chicken, ground pork, tofu or adding rice, different veggies, rice noodles. The possibilities are endless and you can build it to fit your liking. We always double the sauce and so I have included that in my recipe but if you like it with less sauce cut it in half. you can also adjust the heat by adding more or less of the chili paste.
~ 1 pound chicken cut into bit size pieces
~ 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
~ 1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
~ 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
~ 2 carrots, cut into match sticks
~ 1 can water chestnuts, sliced
~ 6 Tbsp. hoisin sauce
~ 4 Tbsp. soy sauce
~ 2 tsp. sesame oil
~ 1/4 tsp. hot chili paste
~ 1head of iceberg lettuce leaves, separated
1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken and garlic until no longer pink. Add in the green onions and carrot and cook for about 3 minutes or until tender. Add the water chestnuts, Hoisin, and soy sauce, stirring frequently until heated through. Remove from heat and stir in the sesame oil and chili paste.
2. To serve, spoon a couple spoonful’s into each lettuce leaf. Wrap the lettuce leaf to enclose the filling and enjoy!
