Copycat PF Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps
If you’ve ever had PF Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps, you know how they burst with flavor and have a great crunch to them. Today, I attempted to recreate them, and they turned out pretty well! I really love asian flavors, and I’m starting to use them enough that I don’t actually have to buy any new ingredients from the store when I find recipes like this using hoisin, rice vinegar, toasted sesame oil, etc.
This recipe called for butter lettuce, and I was able to find a beautiful head of it at Whole Foods that was from a local Illinois farm! It held it’s own to the chicken, but it didn’t quite give me the crunch I was looking for, so I’ll probably look for another type of lettuce next time.
I’m going to keep experimenting to find the best recreation, including making the crispy white rice noodles, but these were definitely delicious!
- 1 lb ground chicken
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 small onion, minced
- ¼ cup hoisin
- 2 Tbsp Tamari or soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
- 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated
- 2 tsp Sriracha
- 1 (8-ounce) can sliced water chestnuts, drained and chopped
- 4 green onions, thinly sliced
- 1 head butter lettuce
P.S. The sauce I used was 2 Tbsp each of soy sauce and rice vinegar, 1 tsp of toasted sesame oil, and a pinch of red pepper flakes–BUT, didn’t love it..so I’ll keep you posted!
