PF Chang's Lettuce Wraps Recipe

You’re going to love these Copycat PF Changs Lettuce Wraps. They can be easily gluten-free modified (with the right gluten-free sauce products) and are packed with veggies. 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! And, of course, the base is made from ground chicken to get all that protein in. I mean, per serving you get 21g of protein. Yeehaw.

PF Changs Lettuce Wraps Sauce

I’d love to talk more about the sauce for these epic lettuce wraps because it’s so delicious and so easy to make at home! Here’s what you need:

  • hoisin sauce: hoisin is sweet and flavorful. It’s not gluten-free, but you can find a few different gluten-free hoisin sauces out there, so keep an eye open if you’re gluten-free!
  • freshly grated ginger: ginger is a great way to add a zippy flavor to any Asian sauce! If you don’t have fresh ginger, you can always sub for a little ground ginger.
  • soy sauce: It wouldn’t be a lettuce wrap recipe without a little bit of soy sauce. If you’re gluten-free, feel free to sub for tamari.
  • minced garlic: don’t skimp on the garlic! That is all.
  • rice vinegar: A little rice vinegar goes a long way. I’m a firm believer that vinegar of any kind should be added to most sauces because it brings out the other flavors of the sauce.

All of these ingredients are easily available at most grocery stores. So? Next time you’re craving your favorite PF Changs Chicken Lettuce Wraps, make them at home instead!
