These are from Damn Delicious here: http://damndelicious.net/2014/05/30/pf-changs-chicken-lettuce-wraps/. They are so yummy! This is also a really easy and pretty quick one too…
I usually start by getting everything ready when I know it doesn’t take long to cook. So, dice 1 onion, grate 1 tbsp of fresh ginger (I did about 2 tsp because the hubby doesn’t like a lot of ginger and it was still great), chop 2 garlic cloves, dic an 8 oz can of water chestnuts, and chop 1 bunch of green onions (2 for being mixed in, the rest for topping which I forgot to do till I was almost finished). Grab the rest of your ingredients: 1 lb ground chicken, olive oil, hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, soy sauce (I used low sodium), sriracha sauce, salt, pepper, and 1 head of lettuce.
For the lettuce, the recipe calls for butter lettuce which is easier to deal with, but we like the crunch of iceberg lettuce. You can also use romaine or green leaf lettuce if you prefer them. To prepare the iceberg lettuce, rinse it off and peel off the first layer. Slam it heart down on something hard to make it easy to remove. Remove the heart and cut the head in half. Slowly and carefully peel the layers apart so you have reasonably sized lettuce cups (much easier with the other lettuce types because they don’t break as easily). Set those aside.
Start by heating 1 tbsp olive oil over medium high heat. Add the ground chicken and cook through. Drain the excess fat and return the chicken to the skillet. Add the diced onion, garlic, ginger, 1/4 C hoisin sauce, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp rice vinegar, and 1 tbsp sriracha sauce (I left this out because my parents are not fans, but would be tasty in it). Stir and heat over medium heat stirring occasionally. Let cook a couple minutes till its warmed through. Add water chestnuts and some of the green onions. Season with sat and pepper to taste (I liked it as is, so I didn’t add any). Stir to combine and get ready to serve it up.
Serve lettuce with meat mixture spooned inside like a taco, and top with green onions and soy sauce (or teriyaki if you have it). Enjoy!
