Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Rating: 3.74 stars
These are so yummy! They taste really close to the lettuce wraps that you can order from that famous Asian restaurant chain. The number of servings will depend on if this is an appetizer or main course for you and how big you make them. If an appetizer, then maybe 6 servings; if a main dish, then 4 servings.

Quick Asian Lettuce Wraps

After many attempts and searching for recipes, I have ended up with this one. Easy to do and great as a summer meal outside. Try different versions by alternating optional ingredients, such as peanuts, peppers, shrimp, steamed rice noodles, diced teriyaki chicken, scrambled egg, or bean sprouts. The possibilities are endless!

Turkey Lettuce Wraps with Shiitake Mushrooms

This dish is very versatile. Try serving the filling on flour tortillas with hoisin sauce for a moo shoo type dish – or use it to top brown rice and veggies for rice bowls.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Rating: 4.65 stars
Delicious and bursting with flavor, Asian lettuce wraps are a great idea for entertaining or a family style meal. Each person can build their own fresh, delicious wrap. Just be sure to have plates or napkins available since the mixture can sometimes drip a little. To serve, allow each person to spoon a portion of the meat into a lettuce leaf. Wrap the lettuce around the meat like a burrito and enjoy!

Chef John's Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Rating: 4.72 stars
When I visit my mom we usually make it to P.F. Chang's® at least once and always start the meal with their very popular chicken lettuce wraps. They do a good job with most of the dishes I've had, but the wraps are clearly my favorite. I don't do a lot of copycat recipes; these chicken lettuce wraps, however, are a delicious exception.

Tuna Lettuce Wraps

Rating: 4 stars
These are a low-calorie, low-carb, but very tasty, light alternative to a tuna wrap sandwich! Try to choose larger leaves of lettuce with no tears or holes; lettuce leaves are replacing the tortilla in a traditional wrap sandwich. Cheese is optional, but even a little adds a lot of flavor.

Lettuce Leaf Tacos

For those on a low-carb kick that love Mexican but dread all the beans and bread, try this alternative for taco night. It uses lettuce leaves instead of taco shells to make a dish that's halfway between a lettuce wrap and a taco. Low on carbs and still delicious!

One-Bite Thai "Flavor Bomb" Salad Wraps (Miang Kham)

This is one of the most delicious, most exciting appetizers of all time. I've only had my mind blown a few times, but when I tried miang kham, that was one of those times. A savory, yet sweet sauce pulls together the intense, immense flavors that these salad bombs hold, and they're perfect for serving at parties.
