Ingredients For Lettuce Wraps

Most pantries have many of these ingredients on hand!

MEAT – The original PF Chang recipe calls for ground chicken, but pork or beef are also low carb.

WATER CHESTNUTS – Keep a few small cans of water chestnuts in the pantry, because they add that signature crunch that makes the restaurant version so unforgettable!

GINGER – Fresh ginger will make the flavors pop, and the ginger can be used in the other recipes.

BELL PEPPERS – Choose two or more colors of bell peppers for visual appeal.

VARIATIONS – Feel free to also add crushed peanuts, sliced brussels sprouts or chopped celery will give lettuce wraps some extra crunch! Leftover cauliflower, broccoli, or peas add texture, color, and are also keto!

How To Make Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Super easy and super healthy is the name of the game with low carb lettuce wraps!

  1. Combine chicken with half the garlic and ginger and sauté.
  2. Add water chestnuts, white portions of green onions, the remaining garlic & ginger, and the bell peppers.
  3. Mix in soy sauce, sambal, and sesame oil and stir.
  4. Garnish with cilantro, onion greens, and sesame seeds and serve in lettuce cups.

PRO TIP: For an extra zesty depth of flavor, stir in 1 tablespoon on Hoisin before garnishing (NOTE: Hoisin contains sugar, which may not be suitable for strict low carb followers).
