Summer’s on its way, and these Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps are a GREAT lunch or dinner option. The filling has lean meat and tons of veggies, and everything is wrapped in a Romaine lettuce leaf for extra crunch and hydration. It’s super easy to make too!


Ingredients

  1. Ground Chicken – Ground chicken is lean, cost-effective, and absorbs our marinade perfectly. You can also use finely diced chicken breasts as an alternative.
  2. Baby Bella Mushrooms – To “beef” up the filling – no pun intended – we’re going to mince baby Bella mushrooms. It’s a great way to get more veggies and volume!
  3. Shredded Carrots – Either shred your own or buy the bag from the produce aisle.
  4. Marinade – Hoisin sauce, sesame oil, soy sauce, and a bit of ginger paste comes together to make the most flavorful filling for these wraps.
  5. Romaine Lettuce – Romaine is one of my favorite lettuce leaves to use, and is often on sale!

How to Make Asian-Style Ground Chicken Lettuce Wraps

This is essentially a one-pan recipe which is always great for our household – less effort and less dishes. Depending on the type of veggies you buy, you may not even need to do any chopping and dicing!

  1. To a large skillet, add the ground chicken, salt, and minced garlic. Cook for about 8 minutes, until almost done, and use a spatula to mince the meat into small pieces.
  2. Pour in your chopped mushrooms and shredded carrots.
  3. Stir, and then pour in the hoisin, sesame oil, soy sauce, and red pepper flakes.
  4. Take the skillet off of the heat. Wash and dry your lettuce leaves, then stuff them with your filling.
  5. Top with fresh green onions, sesame seeds, bang bang sauce, and/or sriracha. Enjoy!

    Make my Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps for your next meal prep; just keep the filling separate from the lettuce leaves to avoid anything becoming soggy. I’ve also used bibb lettuce if I couldn’t find Romaine. You’re going to love them!

Variations/Substitutions

  • You can use cubed chicken, ground beef, ground turkey, or ground pork for the filling. Cooking times will be adjusted slightly.
  • Try switching up the veggies – like bok choy, cabbage, or zucchini.
  • You can also serve this with rice or rice noodles for a bit more carbs.
