If you have ever eaten at PF Chang’s, you have probably tried the Chicken Lettuce Wraps — and yes, they do have a gluten-free menu and you can order these gluten-free. If you don’t live near a PF Chang’s, don’t fret — you can make your own. It’s so easy to make this Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps Recipe! There is a lot of chopping to do, but you could easily do this ahead of time. Other that that, you just need some gluten-free sauces. I adapted some recipes I found and used my favorite San-J sauces (which I always have stocked in my pantry), to make this recipe gluten-free. I use a combination of sauces, but you could use just a teriyaki sauce or any other sauce you like.
This was a huge crowd-pleaser in my family! They gave me all sorts of compliments, which is really what I’m after when I try a new meal!
I like to serve sauteed green beans and Coconut Rice with this dish.
Gluten-Free Asian-Inspired Chicken Lettuce Wraps Recipe
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 pound ground chicken
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed or minced
- 1 tablespoon ginger, freshly grated
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1 medium carrot, diced
- 2 tablespoons San-J GF Teriyaki Sauce
- 2 tablespoons San-J GF Orange Sauce
- 2 tablespoons San-J GF Tamari
- 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar, not "seasoned"
- 1 8-ounce can water chestnuts, drained and diced
- 2-3 green onions, thinly sliced
- 1 head iceberg,Bibb, butter or romaine lettuce leaves, washed and dried
- Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook for about 5 minutes, breaking it into small pieces as it cooks, until browned.
- Add the garlic, ginger, onion, carrot, teriyaki sauce, orange sauce, tamari, maple syrup and rice wine vinegar. Toss the mixture to coat all of the chicken. Cook until onions become translucent, about 5 minutes.
- Stir in the water chestnuts and the green onions and cook 1-2 minutes.
- Serve in a bowl, with another plate or bowl of lettuce leaves. Each person can scoop the chicken mixture onto the lettuce leaves and eat like a taco.
