I have been a fan of PF Chang's restaurant since my first visit a few years ago. I try to re-create some of their less complicated dishes at home and this recipe is pretty close to their chicken lettuce wraps. It's simple, yummy good and has two sauces that don't have to be cooked beforehand.

How to Make Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Step-by-Step

  1. Whenever I make Chinese food I get all my prep work done ahead of time. In 2 medium size bowls prepare each sauce by whisking ingredients together. Now prepare your vegetables.
  2. On stovetop over medium heat add canola oil to sauce pan or wok. Add ground chicken and brown a few minutes. Add ginger, garlic, scallions and mushrooms and saute until chicken is cooked and not pink anymore. Add sauce #1 to chicken mixture, stir to incorporate and add edamame.
  3. Cook another minute or two and get ready to plate the dish. I use Bibb lettuce, but Iceberg may work even better because it's sturdier. Place a few tablespoons of chicken mixture onto lettuce leaf, sprinkle with cilantro leaves, spoon some sauce #2 on top and enjoy.
  4. You will most likely have extra sauce #2. If you are lucky enough to have any chicken left over, boil up a few ounces of linguini and mix it with the leftover sauce #2, and re-heat it for another meal. Also, chopped peanuts are a nice garnish for either the wraps or linguini.
