Chinese Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Chinese Chicken Lettuce Wraps

It takes time to perfect a recipe to call your own. The first time I had Chinese Chicken Lettuce Wraps was at P.F. Chang’s. If you ever had them before, you would agree that they’re amazing, but you will find my chicken wraps a little better and lighter. I removed the sesame oil and water chestnuts and added some of my own ingredients that will surely satisfy.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 medium to large red bell pepper minced
  • 2/3 cup mushroom minced
  • 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup minced onions (I prefer the long green onions)
  • 2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper (Add an extra teaspoon to add more spice)
  • 1 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1 head of butter lettuce

Special Sauce

  • 1/4 cup of regular sugar or a teaspoon of splender
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon hot mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon of grinded dehydrated red peppers or hot sauce (The more the hotter)

Directions

Special Sauce

  • Make the special sauce first by dissolving the sugar in water in a small bowl.
  • Add soy sauce, ketchup, lemon juice, hot mustard, garlic powder and dehydrated red peppers or hot sauce.
  • Mix well and refrigerate until you’re ready to serve.

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

  • Sauté chicken breasts in a frying pan until cooked.
  • Set chicken breasts on the side to cool.
  • In a food processor mince red bell pepper, mushrooms, long green onions, and garlic.
  • Add all ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Add black pepper and ground ginger.
  • Mince the chicken breasts and mix all ingredients together.
  • In a frying pan add 3 to 4 tablespoons of olive oil and add 1/4 cup of water.
  • Add all ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes covered with the cover just slightly off to allow the water to evaporate. Mix ingredients occasionally.
  • Peel lettuce and add ingredients.

Enjoy!

Serves 3 to 4 people.

  1. Honey,

    This was awesome! Thanks goes to Andy for his photography skills.

  2. WOW, I love those things! I could live off of them, or would like to try. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

  3. The green bowl looks more nutritious than the lettuce. Why not use Romaine or some other lettuce with some food value.
