I know it doesn't look pretty but this recipe is a last minute dinner totally worth sharing. I was craving PF Chang's lettuce wraps the other night and after hours of searching for a copycat recipe, I gave up. Everything I found had a long list of ingredients I wasn't willing to go to the grocery store for. As I was going through the fridge to find something else to cook for dinner, I realized I had hoisin sauce and sriracha. They seemed like a decent combo for some lettuce wraps to me.

I don't have exact measurements for the sauce concoction but it did in fact, satisfy my craving!

Here's the breakdown.


1 lb ground chicken (or turkey)

1 lb diced mushrooms

1 bunch of green onion (thinly sliced)

1 tablespoon EVOO

1 carrot shredded (optional)

Romaine Lettuce or Romaine Hearts

Salt to taste

Hoisin Sauce to taste

Sriracha to taste


1. Heat oil over medium heat in a frying pan or wok. Add ground chicken and cook until browned, making sure to crumble it up as it cooks. I usually salt 2-3 minutes into the cooking process. Drain any excess fat/oil.

2. Stir in mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes. We don't want them too tender since we'll be adding green onions next.

3. Add green onions and cook until onions become tender (about 2 minutes).

4. Now this part is by taste and I'm sorry I didn't measure it out but I was just trying something random and recorded it!

I squeezed sriracha straight into the pan in a swirl motion followed by a swirl of hoisin sauce. I'd say about a tablespoon of each. I prefer my food spicy though and I added another dab of sriracha to offset the sweetness from the hoisin. If you like more hoisin add a little more but do it in small increments and taste before adding more. Same concept if you like spicier food. Add more sriracha a little at a time and taste before adding more. Stir it all together and cook for about a minute (just enough time to heat our sauce combo).

To serve, spoon a couple spoonfuls of chicken into the lettuce leafs like a taco and done!

I added some diced red bell pepper as garnish on my leftovers the next day...nice little crunch, I totally recommend.

Seriously the easiest dinner and a great meal prep idea as well. Enjoy!
