The chicken Lettuce Wraps can be made with pork, beef or chicken. An easy, elegant appetizer or light main course. In this dish, savory, soy-flavored chicken is spooned into individually wrapped lettuce shells.
"Very tasty. I recommend updating the directions though - when it said to "add remaining ingredients" I added all including the sweet/sour items. Still turned out well though. I added water chestnuts - yum"
Bring a large wok up to medium high heat. Add vegetable oil, and saute onions and garlic for 1-2 minutes until softened. Add mushrooms, ground chicken, diced pepper, ginger. Stir fry on high heat for 4-5 minutes or until chicken is completely browned. Drain liquid, then add the remaining ingredients and stir. Bring down to a simmer and/or cover to keep warm.
Meanwhile, prepare the sweet/sour sauce to accompany the lettuce wraps. In a small saute pan, add sugar and water, and stir to dissolve. When the sugar is completely dissolved (2-3 minutes), add vinegar, cucumbers and red pepper flakes.
gkoliver 2y agoWe modified the recipe quite a bit due to diet and pantry limitations :) But the chicken was excellently flavored, and the dish was easy. Thank you!
davezula 2y agoDelicious. Trying to figure out how to reach the 20minute prep time- food processor? Also, was easy to overcook the veggies, and I'd add the cilantro later. Ginger was very strong.

CCheryl 6y agocant wait to make these, thanks for the recipe,
Clare2 6y agoReally yummy! Less sugar than the P.F. Changs version too. My husband and I shared it as an entree (no carbs, so you eat a lot of it!) but it would make a great appetizer.
scturner97 7y agoThis is good. The kids really liked it. I didn't like the sauce though.
