Low Carb Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

These Asian chicken lettuce wraps are all you need for your busy weekday dinner. Juicy tender chicken and veggies are coated in a deliciously savory Asian sauce. This can be served over a crunchy lettuce leaf in taco style, which is one of my favorite recipes.

Ingredients

For the Chicken:

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 large red pepper chopped
  • 1 large green pepper chopped
  • 8 ounces whole canned water chestnuts drained and diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper powder

For the Sauce:

  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons Hoisin sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger minced
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha optional, but recommended

Instructions

To Make the Chicken Filling:

  • Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Once hot add onion and sauté until onion softens and becomes translucent.
  • Add ground chicken and cook until browned around 6-7 minutes.
  • Add the bell peppers and water chestnuts and cook on a medium flame for 2-3 minutes or until the peppers soften a little.

To Make the Sauce:

  • In a medium bowl, whisk all the ingredients given under sauce.
  • Pour the sauce into the chicken mixture and let it simmer on low heat until the chicken and veggies are well coated with the sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
  • To serve, spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the chicken mixture into the center of the lettuce leaf and top it with some chopped spring onions and sesame seeds.

Notes

  • You can store the CHICKEN FILLING an airtight container for 3 days in the refrigerator or around 3 months in the freezer.
  • You can use finely chopped chicken breast in place of ground chicken.
  • You can replace peanut butter with any other nut butter if you have a peanut allergy.
  • You can use butter lettuce, romaine lettuce, or green leaf lettuce to make these wraps. Just ensure that you choose one with large leaves.
