PF Chang's Lettuce Wraps


Whenever we go to PF Changs, the lettuce wraps are a must order. Unfortunately, it isn't very often considering the nearest location is over 2 hours away and I won't even tell you how much our bill was last time we took the whole fam!  Thank goodness for copy cat recipes and friends who text  you said recipes. 

Obviously I wasn't doing a side by side comparison, but these lettuce wraps were every bit as good as the original. I easily found all of the ingredients in my local grocery store, except the ground chicken. It was late at night and I didn't want to go to another store so I settled for ground turkey. It was so good I honestly don't know if I will even try the ground chicken next time. 

I served it with some steamed edamame and fresh pineapple. I also made a big pot of jasmine rice to go with it because I can't do no carb. For a quick weeknight meal that's delicious and healthy, this meal is hard to beat. 

Cook's note:  Make sure you get butter lettuce. Sorry people, ice burg just won't cut it here. 

PF Chang's Lettuce Wraps
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 
  • 1 pound ground chicken (I used ground turkey)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1 onion, diced 
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce 
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce 
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar 
  • 1 tablespoons freshly grated ginger 
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha, or more, to taste 
  • 1 (8-ounce) can whole water chestnuts, drained and diced 
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced 
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 
  • 1 head butter lettuce
  • Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add ground chicken and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the chicken as it cooks; drain excess fat. 
  • Stir in garlic, onion, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger and Sriracha until onions have become translucent, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in chestnuts and green onions until tender, about 1-2 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste. 
  • To serve, spoon several tablespoons of the chicken mixture into the center of a lettuce leaf, taco-style
