PF Chang's Copycat Lettuce Wraps

Who doesn't love the lettuce wraps at PF Chang's?  A really flavorful filling wrapped in crisp lettuce and dipped in the sauce of your choice?  Yep, I'm in.  We make these quite often as the closest PF Chang's restaurant is 35 miles away.  Not exactly next door.  Since we cook Asian food on a regular basis, I make these as an appetizer a lot.  I also make them as an entree and serve alongside chicken fried rice or my Asian Meatballs.  Super easy to make, one pan to clean up and kind of healthy.  Oh yeah, and tasty!  Everything you seriously want in a recipe.  Without the drive.

Easy, healthy and tasty too!

PF Chang's Copycat Lettuce Wraps

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground chicken
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium sized onion, diced
1/4 hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
1 teaspoon (or more if you like it hotter) Sriracha Sauce
1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts, drained and diced
4 green onions, thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste
1 head butter lettuce

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.  Add the chicken and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes.  Make sure it is crumbled and drain away any fat.  Stir in garlic,onions,  hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger and Sriracha sauce.  Cook until onions have become translucent.  Season with salt and pepper.  Stir in water chestnuts and green onions  Cook an additional 1-2 minutes.  You want these to retain some crispness.  To serve, spoon filling into lettuce leaves and enjoy.

Prep Time:  Approximately 10 minutes     Cook Time:  Approximately 20 minutes
