Spicy Basil Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Ever tried PF Chang's lettuce wraps? Truth be told, I haven't. But I hear they are great. This recipe is premised on that idea but are unique in their own right...and a heck of a lot healthier. They are also so easy to make that even the most hesitant of cooks can't go wrong.



Spicy Basil Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Servings: 8 leaves + spicy basil chicken

Serving Size: 1-2 leaves + spicy basil chicken

Nutrients per serving (based on 1 serving): 127.1 calories; 7.5g fat; 65.0mg cholesterol; 207.0mg sodium; 70.0mg potassium; 5.7g carbohydrate; 10.2g protein

Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

  • 1 lb lean ground chicken*

  • 1 tbsp thai style chili sauce

  • 1 tbsp hoison sauce

  • 1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp water

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar

  • 1/2 tbsp sugar

  • 1 cup green onions, chopped

  • 10 fresh basil leaves

  • 1 tbsp sirachi sauce, optional

  • 8 lettuce leaves, Bibb, boston or romaine leaves will work


  1. Add olive oil and water to a large pan and heat.

  2. Brown the chicken until cooked, roughly 10 minutes.

  3. Add remaining ingredients, except basil leaves, and stir.

  4. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, ensuring chicken is thoroughly cooked.

  5. Add basil leaves and let wilt, approximately 2 minutes.

  6. Spoon a healthy serving of spicy chicken onto lettuce leaves and serve immediately.

*Ground chicken can be difficult to find, at least in Chicago. If you can't find it, you can easily substitute this with ground turkey.

I never tried P.F. Changs lettuce wraps but always wanted too. And I love how you adapted it to your own specifications. I can't wait to try this recipe out. Wonderful post.
