Chicken Lettuce Wraps

This Chicken Lettuce Wraps recipe is a quick and easy dinner that is full of flavor.

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 Servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 Tablespoons Olive or Avocado Oil
  • 1lb Ground Chicken
  • 1 Small Onion, diced
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 Medium Red Pepper, diced
  • 8oz Water Chestnuts, drained and diced
  • 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 4oz (1/2 Cup) Hoisin Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Rice Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Freshly Grated Ginger
  • 1 Tablespoons Sriracha, optional
  • 2-3 Green Onions, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Peanuts
  • 1 Head of Butter Lettuce


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat add the oil to warm, add the chicken and cook until just browned. Add the diced onion and garlic and cook for a few minutes, until the onion softens and becomes translucent. Add the red pepper and cook for another 3 minutes, making sure to stir everything together.
  2. Mix together the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, and sriracha, then set aside.
  3. Add the sauce and water chestnuts to the chicken mixture and let cook together for 5 minutes or so, stirring so everything is evenly coated in the sauce. Add half of the green onions.
  4. Serve a small-medium scoop inside each butter lettuce cup and sprinkle with remaining onions and crushed peanuts. Store the leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days, keep lettuce separate.
