Wednesday Recipe: Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Wednesday Recipe: Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Recipes seem to go through trends and right now Lettuce Wraps seem to be on trend. You will find them on many menus in hip restaurants these days. So I went online and found this great recipe and thought I would try it out for you. It is tested on my fussy teenager. I got an actual, “Wow! These are really good!” from him. High acclaim from my quiet boy!

First things first, I always collect all the ingredients before I start as inevitably there is at least one ingredient I don’t have. This time it was ground chicken. Once I had all my ingredients the process was very straightforward and would make for a great quick dinner mid week.


Love the wholesome ingredients!


Prepping the sauce –Yum!!

For the Sauce

  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon sambal oelek (chili paste)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger (I use a paste)
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 green onions, minced
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar (optional – makes it more tangy)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch (optional – helps the sauce thicken)

For the Lettuce Wraps

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 lb. ground chicken or turkey
  • ½ cup lightly salted peanuts, chopped
  • 6 ounces rice noodles
  • 12 leaves of lettuce (I used Boston lettuce)
  • chopped cilantro, green onions, and peanuts for topping


  1. Whisk all the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl. Pour about ¾ of the sauce into a bowl with the ground chicken and peanuts. Stir to combine – marinate for 15 minutes.
  2. Soak the rice noodles in a large bowl of water while the meat is marinating. When the noodles are softened, drain and rinse with cold water. Cut into small pieces.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the sesame oil over medium heat. Add the meat and peanut mixture and sauté for 10 minutes or until cooked through. Add the noodles and stir-fry for another 5 minutes or until soft, adding a splash of water, oil, soy sauce, oyster sauce, or lime juice to moisten the pan as you see fit.
  4. Remove from heat, scoop mixture into lettuce leaves, top with cilantro, green onions, peanuts, and the reserved sauce.
