SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Ground turkey meat: you can use ground turkey meat instead of ground chicken meat. They have similar taste and require the same cook time. Always make sure the meat is 100% cooked through without any pinkness.
  • Regular mushrooms: sometimes shiitake mushrooms can be challenging to find. You can use regular white button or crimini mushrooms. 
  • Lettuce: Any type of green lettuce will work just fine with this recipe. Some lettuce options are butter lettuce, romaine lettuce, green leaf lettuce, and iceberg lettuce. I like to cut my lettuce leaves in half to make it the perfect size. I always cut my lettuce leaves to be about the size of my hand so it’s easy to pick up.

LEFTOVERS

If you have leftover chicken meat, place in an airtight container and it will last in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Make sure to store the lettuce leaves separate so they do not get soggy. To store the lettuce leaves, simply place them in a large ziplock bag and remove as much air as you can. If stored properly, the leaves will stay fresh for 5-6 days before they start to turn limp.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 6 servings
Calories: 206kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms (depending on your preference)
  • 1 8 ounce can water chesnuts; drained and diced (optional)
  • 3 green onions; thinly sliced
  • salt + pepper to taste
  • 1 head butter lettuce
  • sesame seeds; for garnish
  • 1 green onion; sliced for garnish

For the sauce

  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1/2 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1 small shallot; diced
  • 1 tsp. fresh grated ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic; minced

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, whisk together all of the sauce ingredients until combined. Set aside.
  • In a large frying pan or wok, add sesame oil and bring to a medium-high heat. Add ground chicken and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Add in shitake mushrooms, green onions and water chesnuts and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Stir until combined.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and add the sauce. Stir to coat the meat mixture and then cover with a lid for about 2-3 minutes to let the sauce absorb into the ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste. If you prefer your chicken meat to be sweeter add 1 teaspoon of sugar, if you prefer more of a savory chicken meat add more soy sauce.
  • To serve, spoon in chicken mixture into lettuce leaves. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds. Enjoy!

    Amazing recipe! I added shredded carrots and chopped walnuts. I also added a little Siracusa because my family loves a little heat. Made extra sauce to serve on the side. Thank you the yummy recipe!

    1. Hi Camille! You can use soy sauce, sriracha sauce or any sauce that is leftover from the lettuce wrap filling. I hope you get a chance to try this recipe, it’s one of my favorites!

    Made this for dinner tonight and it was a hit! I added about 3/4 cup of chopped cashews when I added the onions, mushrooms and water chestnuts. I aslo added about one teaspoon of sriracha. It was amazing!

    Hi Lauri! I’m so glad you love these chicken lettuce wraps 🙂 You could prepare the chicken meat ahead of time and freeze in an airtight container. Heat on the stove to warm and then serve. I hope this helps!

    Is the sesame oil in the pan in addition to the sesame oil in the sauce? Just want to make sure I don’t over do it! Thanks!

      Hi Kelsey, thanks for your comment! You want to add an addition 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil to the pan before browning the chicken. I’ve also updated the recipe card to make it more clear :). Thank you and I hope you love this recipe!

  6. This is one of my family’s favorites! I recently started calculating macros…. Do you have that information?
