These healthy chicken lettuce wraps taste just like the famous PF Chang’s appetizer. This copycat recipe tastes better than the restaurant version with fewer calories and done in just 20 minutes!
I’ve been a massive fan of those famous, delicious lettuce wraps you can find on the appetizer menu at PF Chang’s for years. I ordered them every single time back then and I still do today. They. Are. The best. A few years ago Dan and I decided that we needed to create our own homemade version because it wasn’t feasible to pay those prices every time we wanted to enjoy a few succulent bites.
We have tweaked this recipe over the years and feel this is the best recreation of our favorite lettuce wraps and using fewer calories that the original. It’s basically a dream come true. We’re saving calories and money, plus they taste even better. If you have not tried this recipe, you must! Make them for your next snacky dinner or to serve at your next party. This is a super easy recipe that’ll quickly become a favorite!
HOW TO MAKE PF CHANG’S CHICKEN LETTUCE WRAPS
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken, onion, garlic, salt and pepper and cook until the chicken is cooked almost all the way. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, peanut butter, water, honey and chili garlic sauce. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir until creamy.
Add the liquid mixture to the chicken mixture and stir until combined. Add the green onions and water chestnuts. Cook for 3 minutes, or until heated through.
Remove from heat and divide the chicken mixture between the lettuce leaves. Top with desired toppings and serve.
Topping options for lettuce wraps: chopped peanuts, chili garlic sauce and green onion slices.
Chili garlic sauce can be found in the Asian aisle of most grocery stores.
Use either 1 pound of ground turkey or ground chicken or cut 2 chicken breasts into bite size pieces.
Romaine lettuce, butter lettuce or iceberg lettuce leaves work best for this recipe. The sturdier the leaf, the better.
Make this a gluten free recipe by using GF soy sauce.
