The inspiration for this recipe came from the popular Chinese restaurant, P.F. Chang’s. Not only are these lettuce wraps wonderful, they always taste so much better homemade – and at half the cost!

Ingredients For Lettuce Wraps

  • Chicken: This recipe calls for ground chicken, but you can slice or even dice your chicken if you prefer. Grilled chicken works great, either using chicken thighs or chicken breast. Ground turkey is also a great substitute!
  • Lettuce: Butter lettuce or mini romaine are both great choices to use. If you don’t have either on hand, iceberg lettuce will work just fine.
  • Sauce: Peanut butter, soy sauce and water! That’s it!
  • Toppings: Use your favorite toppings like cucumbers, carrots, radishes, chow mein noodles, cilantro, green onions or even brown or white rice.

Set out toppings buffet style, so everyone can make their own creations! The vegetables can either be julienned or chopped fine, whichever you prefer.

Pro Tips

  • Prepare toppings and lettuce ahead of time so that you are ready to serve immediately once the chicken is cooked.
  • The chicken filling reheats beautifully! In a skillet, add a splash of chicken broth along with the chicken mixture and you’re done! Or you can microwave until heated through.
  • Once cooked and cooled, cover the chicken filling with plastic wrap or in an airtight container. It will stay fresh up to 3 days!

My favorite part of this recipe is the super easy sauce! It’s not the traditional sauce you might expect from lettuce wraps and the ingredients are ones you already have on hand.
