Lately I’ve been craving these chicken lettuce wraps! They’re perfect as a meal during the summer as I tend to eat lighter and healthier during the warmer months. It’s a great combination of hearty, satisfying, yet light and healthy. I’ve been eating these almost every week as they’re so simple and easy to make!

Tips for Making PF Chang’s Inspired Chicken Lettuce Wraps:

  • Use Butter, Bibb, or Boston lettuce. They’re all different varieties under the same category of Butterhead lettuce. Iceberg lettuce can be substituted.
  • Add water chestnuts or other crunchy vegetables for texture. Fresh bean sprouts or bamboo shoots would make good substitutes.
  • To make it spicy, add in a chopped jalapeno or a heaping spoonful of chili garlic sauce.
  • The filling can be made a day or two ahead for a fast weeknight meal.
  • You can substitute with any ground meat such as pork, turkey, or beef.
