Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Hi All! Hope you are all staying warm wherever you are! Our heat is back on and the high today is around 25! It is like a heatwave! We live in a retirement community so everyone’s yard is perfect and ours is so trampled. Drake and Deuce (our cowdog reject) absolutely love the snow. I love to look at it from inside with a cup of coffee… Don’t get me wrong, I would love to play in it, but not yesterday when it is 2 degrees.

Chris has been working a lot of long hours and I am never sure when he will be home. This deliciousness I whipped up super fast last night because he was home at an unexpected time. Drake was super helpful………………………………………..

I don’t know if you have had PF Chang’s lettuce wraps, but they used to be one of my favorite treats ever! I haven’t had them in years because I found this lovely recipe. It is from One Lovely Life. For so little effort it is so yummy and super quick!!

I was going to take a picture… they were eaten too fast!

I also use her dipping sauce for other recipes as well. Delicious!img_6234

For a dipping sauce, we mixed together equal parts dijon mustard and coconut aminos/tamari. You can also add a little chili oil or Sriracha if you like it hot!

For the filling:
  • 1 lb ground chicken

  • 1 (8oz) can water chestnuts, drained and minced
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil (olive or coconut oil would work well too)
  • ¼-1/3 cup coconut aminos, GF tamari, or soy sauce
To serve:
  • Lettuce leaves (romaine hearts or iceberg lettuce work well)

  1. Prepare the filling by heating the oil in a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until lightly browned and cooked all the way through.
  2. Add mushrooms, water chestnuts, green onions, ginger, and garlic. Cook until fragrant and cooked through.** about 2-4 mins depending on your preference. Add 4 Tbsp coconut aminos or tamari and stir to coat chicken mixture.
  3. Add additional sauce as desired (remember you don’t want it too wet, or it will make eating your lettuce wraps a very messy, soggy experience).
  4. Scoop mixture onto lettuce leaves. top with cilantro, if desired, and your favorite dipping sauce.
