Lettuce wraps

I wanted to recreate PF Changs lettuce wraps but I ended up making my version which tasted even better!! Lettuce wraps is a family favorite and it is a meal by itself. It’s easy to make, addictive and flavorful. And I love the combination of spicy with mild sweetness and the crunch. Get ready to wrap the lettuce around the meat like a burrito and enjoy!

Serves 4 to 6


·         1 tablespoon olive oil or sesame seed oil

·         1 pound ground chicken or turkey

·         2 cloves garlic, minced

·         1 onion, finely chopped

·         2 tablespoons soy sauce

·         1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

·         1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger

·         1 tablespoon Sriracha, (I used sweet Thai Chillie sauce)

·         2 green onions, finely chopped

·         1 carrot, finely grated

·         Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

·         Chille flakes to taste

·         1 head butter lettuce 


1.       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.

2.       Add garlic, onion, ginger, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger, chillie flakes and sweet Thai Chillie sauce until onions have become translucent, about 1-2 minutes.

3.       Stir in green spring onions and fry about 1-2 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

4.       To serve, spoon several tablespoons of the chicken mixture into the center of a lettuce leaf, taco-style. And garnish with spring onions and grated carrot. 


·         You can add vegetables like mushroom and bell-peppers to the minced chicken.

·         For more crunchiness you can chestnuts
