We love the lettuce wraps at PF Changs. The last time I had them though, they were extremely salty! Since I wanted to make these at home, Chicken Lettuce Wraps from SouthernPlate was my selection for the Sweet As Pie Cooking club.
While the chicken is cooking, chop the mushrooms, water chestnuts and green onion.
When the chicken is done, chop it up too.
I added in extra green onion and mushrooms.
The sauce is simply soy sauce and brown sugar. Pour it in with the chicken and veges and heat thoroughly.
Spoon the mixture into chilled lettuce leaves and roll or fold over.
I ended up spooning much more into that leaf! And I skipped the crunchy rice noodles.
My family enjoys these. To me, they are much milder and less tasty than I remember them being the first time I made them. I added chili sauce to mine to spice them up. I guess I was missing that yummy sauce at PF Changs!
This version might be a basic starter that would work for picky eaters or maybe kids.
I have since run across a couple of other lettuce wrap recipes that I want to try.
