I don’t think I’ve met a single person who didn’t like PF Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps (vegetarians- YOU ARE MISSING OUT!). These are THE perfect way to start a meal, or heck, they can even be a meal. They are low-carb, protein-packed, and full of flava flavvv!
Did I mention that they are EXTREMELY easy to make? Like made in less than 15 minutes, easy. Look, we made a video to show you how 🙂
And why do I keep saying ya’ll? Spell check keeps telling me it’s not a word….up here in Minnesota, it for sure isn’t a word. We do say weird things though like “Com-mear once” translated into “Come here for a second.” OR “Alls you gotta do” translated into “All you have to do.” AND some people even say “Can you borrow me that?” translated into “Can you lend me that?” Man oh man the Minnesota accent.
You’re going to love these Copycat PF Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps. They can be easily gluten-free modified (with the right gluten-free sauce products) and are packed with vegetables. I think that’s one of the hardest parts for me, getting enough veggies into my diet! We snuck some mushrooms and water chestnuts into the chicken mixture just like the real recipe has!
