How to Make Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

  1. Make Sauce – in a small bowl combine the sauce ingredients – chicken stock, honey, sriracha sauce, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, garlic powder, and ground ginger. Stir until well incorporated and combined.
  2. Cook Chicken – Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Saute chicken stirring occasionally, until chicken is starting to brown. Add onions and garlic. Continue to cook until chicken no longer pink and onions and garlic fragrant. Add sauce to skillet, simmer on low until sauce has thickened and chicken well coated.
  3. Fill Lettuce Cups – evenly transfer chicken into individual lettuce cups, garnish with red chili flakes, sesame seeds, green onions, or peanuts as desired.

How to Make Perfect Lettuce Cups?

Start by removing the damaged, browned and wilted lettuce leaves from outside of the lettuce, if needed. Then, rinse in cold water upside down, being sure pay careful attention to base as this is where dirt can reside. Gently shake off excess water and pat each leaf dry with a piece of paper towel. Trim each leaf with a pair of scissors or a knife, and set aside.

How Do You Keep Lettuce Wraps Together?

  • Toothpicks – to keep the ends of the wraps from unravelling.
  • Aluminum Foil or Parchment Paper – to tightly roll your wrap, and to prevent wrap from falling apart when you eat it.

What Lettuce is Best for Lettuce Wraps?

These are the recommended and best types of lettuce to use as a vessel for low-carb meals and these Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps:

  1. Butter Lettuce also known as Bibb or Boston Lettuce
  2. Green Leaf Lettuce
  3. Romaine Lettuce

What is Butter Lettuce?

Butter Lettuce is a type of lettuce that is sometimes also referred to as Bibb or Boston lettuce. They have round, loose shaped lettuce leaves that are tender, sweet with a mild lettuce-like flavour. They are often sold with the roots still attached in a plastic container to preserve freshness.

How to Store, Reheat, and Freeze Lettuce Wraps

  • How to Store – you can store leftover chicken filling in an airtight storage container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Keep lettuce stored separately, in an airtight container or ziploc bag wrapped in paper towel to preserve freshness in the refrigerator.
  • How to Reheat – heat chicken on the stove in a skillet over medium-low heat, alternatively you can reheat using a microwave for 30-45 seconds. Then transfer to lettuce cups and serve.
  • How to Freeze. transfer leftover chicken filling to an airtight freezer-safe container and keep in freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to serve, let thaw then heat on stove top or microwave and serve with fresh lettuce cups.

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps: Substitutions & Adaptations

  • Whole Grains: add some whole grains into these wraps – brown rice, quinoa, or riced cauliflower.
  • Veggies: add more veggies – carrots, peas, red and green bell peppers.
  • Beef or Shrimp: swap the chicken for beef or shrimp.
