These are even better (and, I'm convinced, WAY healthier) than the popular restaurant chain best-known for their lettuce wraps. These wraps are gluten-free, as long as you use GF/wheat-free soy sauce/tamari.

Directions

  • Heat canola oil in a large wok or skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion, mushrooms, garlic, and ginger for 2 minutes. Add ground chicken; cook and stir, breaking chicken into smaller pieces, until chicken is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.

  • Pour soy sauce and vinegar over chicken mixture and stir. Add corn and water chestnuts to chicken mixture; cover and cook for 4 minutes. Add snap peas; cover and cook for 2 minutes. Stir sesame oil into chicken mixture.

  • Scoop about 1/4 cup chicken mixture into each lettuce leaf. Fold leaf around the filling.

Cook's Notes:

You can add additional vegetables to the mixture, but try to keep the pieces small so that you get a bit of each ingredient in every bite.

If it needs more soy sauce or vinegar, add at the end of cooking.

You can spice it up with spicy chile sauce or cayenne.

The mixture freezes quite well. These make lovely appetizers for parties, though they can be messy to eat.

Made as written and these were pretty good. They came together in a flash and the corn was a nice addition. They could have used a bit more salt so next time I will add more soy sauce. I recommend having all of your ingredients out and chopped before you ever start because once you start it moves fast. Read More

Was craving lettuce wraps and this was a great base recipe. I agree that you should prep all your ingredients before you start cooking as it does move fast. I added green onions with the snap peas and added teriyaki sauce to the mix. Served on f Read More

This was good but I put in shiitake mushrooms and no corn. I also add the fried noodles and used Ice burg lettuce instead of bibb. There was nothing left so they loved it. The next time I make this I will add a sauce. Read More
