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. By far the best and delicious recipe. Have tried other PF Changs type recipes and this is by far the best for flavor and texture. 

  2. Plan to make this soon but have a question regarding calorie measurement. How many standard calories does 295kcal represent?

  3. Delicious! However, how can I lower the amount of sodium in this recipe? Also, under your ‘nutrition’ section, is this for one wrap only?

    • Hi Alicia! This recipe makes 4 servings and the nutritional information is per serving, or about 2 wraps! To lower the sodium, you can use a little less hoisin sauce and low sodium soy sauce. (And skip seasoning with salt.)

  4. My second time making it we love it

  5. Whole family loved this recipe! Fantastic.. even for my picky eaters!

  6. My family loves this! It’s just so good! No more waiting for trips to the city to eat it at P. F. Changs!

    • I’m so happy your family love the lettuce wraps! I love seeing my daughter and husband eat this. It’s always been a favorite of mine and it’s a great change of pace when you want something on the lighter side! Thanks so much for the great review Barbara!😃

  7. Even the kids loved it! They said not to put it in the regular rotation because they didn’t want to get sick of it. But a week later when I asked what meals I should make for the week, they requested it 😂 It’s a winner winner chicken dinner!

    • Wow what a great meal for your kids to like, it’s actually healthy!❤️ That’s funny they said they didn’t want to get sick of it lol, my duaghter literally asks for chicken nuggets every night. I wish she felt the same way lol.

As Seen On…
