These Copycat PF Changs Chicken Lettuce Wraps make a healthy dinner idea that only takes 20 minutes to make! Even kids love this delicious filling and flavorful sauce!


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 white onion, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha, Optional
  • 8 oz. whole water chestnuts, drained and diced
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 head butter lettuce


  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned and cooked through, crumbling as you do so. (About 5 minutes.)
  • Stir in the garlic, onions, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger, sesame oil, sugar, and Sriracha. Stir occasionally and cook until onions are soft and translucent, about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in the chestnuts and sliced green onions, salt and pepper and heat for an additional minute.
  • Spoon 3-4 Tablespoons into the center of each lettuce leaf and enjoy!



If you don’t have (or like) ginger, sesame oil, Sriracha or chestnuts, this recipe is still delicious without them! Ground turkey is a great option in this recipe as well.

  1. Really delicious! My husband was really not thrilled at all about lettuce wraps… He had two decent helpings! Thank you for a new to me recipe! Saved me time and I was able to use the rest of my cabbage and mushrooms too!!

    • I’m so happy you were able to convert your husband! Mine rejected the idea at first to but now he loves them! It’s great that you were able to use mushrooms and cabbage too!😋 Thanks so much for leaving a review!

  2. I’ve been making this dish for a while but it is such a favorite that I have to leave a review. Everyone who tries and absolutely loves it. I use butter lettuce which is my favorite to wrap it with, and I add shredded carrots and chopped peanuts for whoever wants them. We serve it with some steamed rice, sometimes I turn it into like a salad type dish or a bowl with rice and the toppings. Of course I use chopped cilantro because I live the stuff! Thank you for sharing this awesome recipe. I could live off this! 🤗👍🏼😍

    • I’m so happy to hear that April, thanks so much for taking the time to comment and review!❤️ I love throwing this recipe into the rotation. It’s a healthy and refreshing light dinner and also tastes yummy! I love the idea of turning into a salad type dish!

  3. OMG, this was so so good! I’ve made chicken lettuce wraps before but your recipe is the best one I’ve ever made. It had so much flavor and cooked up so quickly. The only thing I changed was to use ground turkey and extra ginger because I love ginger. My husband even loved it and he’s super picky. Thanks for sharing this recipe. This will be going into our regular rotation.

    • I’m so happy this is a hit for you Veronica! This is a great one to add to the rotation. It’s nice to throw in a lighter meal every once in awhile! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review!❤️

  5. I’m going to give this recipe a try tomorrow. Mandy in the Making suggest this recipe and said it’s delicious. I can’t use as a lettuce wrap but will try the mission brand mission street tacos (corn tortillas) I will heat them up in cast iron skillet. I’m so excited to this!! Thank you 🙏 

  6. very good. I will double the recipe next time since my family devoured this!

    • Great to hear Sue!😀 I like slipping this one into the rotation for a healthier meal. My husband wasn’t too happy to hear we were having lettuce wraps the first time I made this but he ended up loving them!
