Tantalizing Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Rated as 4.71 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Turned out great. Although I added my own twist and added some fresh ground pepper, Hoisin Sauce, peanuts and dried chow mien noodles.

I loved these! I used ground turkey and put chopped pecans on top because I didn’t have peanuts. I think I’ll try it with hoisin sauce next time. Will definitely make these again!
