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.

    • Hey Marsha! That’s so great to hear, I’m so happy! I love this recipe too- even my toddler likes it! 🙂 Thank you for taking the time to comment and rate it, it made my day! -Stephanie

  2. Did you use a white or yellow onion?

  3. Excellent! Can’t wait to make it again! Used ground turkey.

    • Hi Deneen! I’m so glad you enjoyed it, I love the way the flavors blend together in this recipe and how quickly it comes together! I often use ground turkey too! So glad you enjoyed it! 🙂 Thank you for taking the time to rate and comment! -Stephanie

  4. My husband has never been to PF Chang’s and had never had these.  I was so excited when I saw your post about this on Instagram and told him I was going to make them.  He was super skeptical when we went to get the rice wine vinegar and lettuce today, but is devouring them now.  Thank you!!  I used ground turkey since it is what I had already, but I will use chicken next time.  Even our 6 y/o is happily eating them!! 

    • Hi Lisa! I had to laugh when I read this, it’s as if I wrote this comment myself! I used ground turkey at first too, my husband was super skeptical and loved them, AND my toddler loved the filling! Hahaha so funny! I’m so happy you had the same experience!!

  5. I made this for dinner tonight, ommitted the sriracha for the whimps in our house but it still turned out AMAZING! Didn’t have butter lettuce but I have a ton of different lettuce in my garden and the big leaves worked just fine. Thanks for a great, easy to follow recipe. Connie

    • Hi Connie!! Yaaayy! I’m so happy that you enjoyed this recipe and found it easy to follow! That’s my goal! I’ve had to omit sriracha a time or two for various wimps as well so I hear you there, haha!! —LOVE that you had fresh garden lettuce too! Nothing beats that!

  6. I have been on a pizza kick for awhile now and am always looking for creative new pies. I made this and put it on a Boboli Pizza Cruist and it is absolutely amazing! Best pizza I have ever had! I added a light layer of Italian 5-blend shredded cheese. No need for sauce, and, of course, you omit the lettuce!

    • Hi Tom! WOW!!!! I never would have thought of putting this chicken on a pizza, it sounds delicious now that you say ! I am definitely going to have to try that, thank you for sharing! Happy Cinco De Mayo, have a great weekend!

  7. My husband and I loved it! A healthy, easy, and delicious recipe! Will definitely enter our weekday rotation. Thanks!!

    • Wahooooo!!! We felt the same way, thank you so much for taking the time to comment and rate- you’re the best!

  8. This came out just like PF Chang’s great!

  9. It is extremely delicious. We had this at Pf Changs and was so good so was excited when I saw this recipe.

  10. Amazing!  My husband loved this one! He prefers spicy so I increased sriracha.  Will definitely make again.  

    • Hi Tina! I’m so happy that you enjoyed it as much as we did, I love extra spice too, good call! Thanks for letting me know how it came out!
